The 2015 Tire Rack SCCA Solo Nationals Presented by Garmin VIRB brought 4 days of incredible competition and lived up to it’s name as the world’s largest motorsports competition. 1228 drivers set a new record for the largest Solo National Championships ever. Pink flamingos, pools and palm trees were in abundance as the tropical theme continued with the event slogan, ‘The Return 2 Concrete Beach’.

There was trouble in paradise with the intermittent rain throughout the event, and many classes were fraught with inconsistent run conditions. But that didn’t stop competitors from some amazing drives and proving why this is one of the most exciting motorsports events in the country.

Enjoy the 2015 Redwood Region autocross video from the mind of Drew Powers.  He is part of the Stoked News/Powers family and is very, very fast in the family’s red 356 sunroof coupe.

The video was filmed during the 9 month long 2015 autocross season at the club’s Santa Rosa location in Northern California.  The 2016 season starts up again in March and we can’t wait.

Thanks to Drew for his many hours of hard work filming and editing this video.

This time around, Freiburger and Finnegan travel to Santa Rosa, California, to drive a crazy ’74 Mazda REPU mini-truck all the way back to SoCal, where they’ll compete in Optima’s Search for the Ultimate Street Car Challenge.

The Mazda is an oddity, originally powered by a rotary engine but later converted to Olds Toronado front-wheel drive drivetrain sometime in the late-1980s. With a 455ci big-block and ’69 Toronado transaxle slid between the rear frame rails, the seller claimed wheelies and 10-second ETs. However, Finnegan and Freiburger quickly discover their $5,000 mini-truck has more style than substance. Can they hang with the big dogs at the races?
