Mark Scroggs may be
prepped for this year’s
Tire Rack Solo National
Championships, but how
did this three-time champ
get to where he is?
WORDS & IMAGES Philip Royle
Mark Scroggs was chosen for the cover of this month’s Who Will Win the Tire Rack
Solo National Championships
issue of SportsCar because, at
first blush, he’s the poster child of
someone rocketing from 0-100.
Consider this: He burst onto the
National Solo scene in 2014,
winning his first time out at the
Solo National Championships,
collecting the Solo Nationals
Rookie of the Year award, and then
backing that up in 2015 with a
second championship. In 2015 and
2017, Mark scored the insanely
difficult Solo Triad awards, and
also clinched the overall ProSolo
Championship JCJ Cup in 2017.
Along the way, he volunteered to
be on a Solo Advisory Committee,
and he currently sits on the Solo
Events Board. But while all of this
is true, within minutes of meeting
him in person, I also discovered
that we couldn’t have been
more wrong about his story.
