SCCA Diecast

After the demise of the USRRC GT Championship in 1965, the SCCA National Series races became the de facto top level for GT cars in the US. This was also the "heyday" of the Trans-Am series, so much of the production road racing talent in North America gravitated there. There were some interesting cars, especially in the lower-displacement "C-Production" class. The IMSA GT series eventually took over and SCCA reverted back to its traditional semi-pro status.

Championships

In addition ot the many reigonal-level events, the SCCA has always held National-Level events throughout the year. Initially there was a points system to determine the national championships, but a winner-take-all race was created in 1964. This was originally called the "American Road Race of Champions", but over the years has become the "SCCA Runoffs".

Toyota 2000GT

The Shelby American team ran two of these rare cars in the 1968 SCCA National Championship, but oddly not at Daytona or Sebring.
