Archiving Our History

Pro and amateur driver records are being preserved by the thousands in SCCA’s Archives

In February 1982, SCCA member number 35,400 sent in his application to have his National racing license renewed. The member hand wrote four races into the section reciting the prior year’s events, satisfying the minimum participation requirements. He first listed a second-place finish in the September 1981 Can-Am race at Mosport. Next, he listed a fourth-place finish in the November 1981 Can-Am race in Las Vegas. The fourth entry on the list was a fifth-place finish in the July 1981 Six-Hours of Watkins Glen.
