2016 Majors Schedule, Staff and Series Registration Update

TOPEKA, Kan. (Nov. 13, 2015) – Five additional dates have been confirmed for the 2016 SCCA U.S. Major Tour schedule. The additions will complete the six-event schedules for the Mid-States, Northeast and Northern Conferences.

The Mid-States Conference gets two additional events added to the calendar. Competition in the Conference will open at NOLA Motorsports Park, Feb. 27-28, for the third-consecutive year. The 2016 edition of the event, held just outside of New Orleans, will serve as a dual-conference meet with the Southeast Conference like it was in 2015. In addition, MSR Houston will host its inaugural Majors event, April 30-May 1. This event will serve as the third event on the Mid-States schedule.

In the Northern Conference, the WeatherTech Chicago Region SCCA June Sprints at Road America will count toward the championship chase. This will be the fourth-consecutive season that the nationally-renowned event will be a stopping point on the way to the end of the Northern Conference trail. The event will run June 17-19.

The Northeast Conference slate of events was finalized with the addition of a pair of race weekends. Pittsburgh International Race Complex, in Wampum, Pennsylvania, is on the schedule for the second-straight year, moving to May 14-15. New Jersey Motorsports Park, in Millville, New Jersey, will serve at the penultimate event, July 22-24.

With the addition of these five events, the only outstanding item on the 2016 calendar is the information regarding the April event in the Western Conference, which will be announced as it becomes available. For 2016, four of the five Conferences will have six events, with the Southeast Conference counting five race weekends toward its championship.
