2020 SCCA NATIONAL
Having your name on an SCCA National RoadRally trophy is quite an achievement
but a listing in the National Championship
appendixes to the RoadRally Rules (the RRRs)
means a great deal more. Starting with the
overall winners Joseph and Celia Bechtel in
1958, nine pages of small type list the winners in
various combinations of the National RoadRally
types and classes used over the years.
As we all start to think about getting the car
together with the pile of rally equipment on the
top shelf ready for 2020, the National winners
of 2019 give us something to aim toward.
In the National Course Rally Series, Class
E was won by Steve Gaddy with a perfect
score of 100 points, Class L by Karl E. Broberg
and Jeanne M. English with a perfect score
of 100 points each, and Class S by James C.
(Jim) Wakeman Sr. with a score of 98 points.
In the National Tour Rally Series, Class
E was won by Robert T. (Rob) Moran with
94 points, Class L by Karl E. Broberg and
Jeanne M. English with 48 points each
and Class S by J Toney with 66 points.
While the Course and Tour Championships
are separated into E, L and S class based
on equipment, the GTA Championship is
a single class, and this year it was won
by R. Bruce Gezon and C. Robert (Bob)
Morseburg with 50 points each.
With a total of 363 cars forming the
National Manufacturers’ Championship,
Subaru took first place with 191 points
earned by the 51 cars entered.
If you are looking for a place to
add your name in the long history of
SCCA RoadRally, the National Events
Committee (NEC) has put together a list
of RoadRallies for the 2020 season.
The events are a combination of
National Course Rallies (NCR), National
Tour Rallies (NTR), Divisional Course Rallies
(DCR), and Divisional Tour Rallies (DTR)
This year, at least 20 events from seven
Regions are on the list. The year typically
starts with Detroit Region and Scott Harvey
Jr. presenting the Son of Sno* Drift Divisional
Tour rally and culminates this year with Detroit
Region hosting the United States RoadRally
Challenge (USRRC) from Nov. 13-15.
Detroit Region did a great job putting
together the 2012 USRRC, and anyone who
enjoys the sport can expect the same level of
excitement and challenge for this year’s event.
This year there are National Tour Rallies
scheduled for Friday and Saturday concluding
on Sunday with a Divisional Course Rally.
It should be an enjoyable weekend – and it
would certainly be a great achievement to
have your name on a trophy from there.
