This coming weekend marks another round of 2019 National Championship Runoffs® events from VIRginia International Raceway airing on CBS Sports Network. This Sunday, Dec. 22, is all about SCCA Production racing. At noon Eastern, the surprising E Production race will be broadcast. Then the nail-biter that was F Production will air at 1 p.m. Eastern Time on CBS Sports Network.
As if that wasn’t enough, Dec. 22 will also see encore presentations of a couple Runoffs events on CBS Sports Network. The Spec Racer Ford Gen3 contest will be rebroadcast at 10 p.m., followed by Formula Vee at 11 p.m. and Spec Racer Ford at midnight. All times are Eastern.
Each separate presentation, produced by Apex Broadcast for the 11th year in a row, will be 60 minutes in length and anchored by longtime Runoffs announcer Greg Creamer. Additional commentary is supplied by pro driver Tom O’Gorman, Runoffs announcers Andy Hollis and Larry MacLeod, SportsCar365 writer Ryan Myrehn, and Heyward Wagner again covering pit row. All broadcast times are Eastern and the schedule is subject to change. Check cable or satellite TV providers for local CBS Sports Network channels.

The SCCA National Championship Runoffs has evolved into what is now commonly agreed to be the pinnacle of American motorsports. Since 1964, the SCCA has crowned Road Racing’s National Champions at the winner-take-all, single race Runoffs format through dozens of separate races over three days. The 56th annual Runoffs took place in 2019 at VIRginia International Raceway. It was the first time SCCA’s National Championship visited that venue found along the border of North Carolina and Virginia.
With broadcasts presented by Mazda, all 2019 Runoffs races from VIR are available for online viewing anytime at the 2019 SCCA Runoffs OnDemand webpage at SCCA.com.
