TOPEKA, Kansas –  The Runoffs are a tradition that goes back decades, but those in charge just wish everyone would forget about it. A disinterested public, lack of talent, and an increase in Spec Miata fields has led to a perfect storm of awful. “Years ago the biggest names in racing would spend the entire year looking forward to Runoffs. Now it’s just a slog that we all wish would go away,” whined an SCCA official, “at this point, it’s just Spec Miata racers all protesting each other and some Formula F guys bemoaning the lack of respect on track. We all want this nightmare to end.”

SCCA has decided to organize Runoffs for another couple years before just ending it all and not telling anyone.
