2022 Solo Nationals highlights.
International Guests Try Autocross Yesterday's Autocross event at Devens had a unique twist to it. A few of our regular solo drivers brought a few guests visiting from Germany, Japan and India. So they brought them along to give it a try! Some of the guests hopped in cars with NER drivers for ride alongs, but a few actually put their rental cars on the starting line and raced them on the day's course. This is just a reminder, anyone can autocross. With any car. So grab a friend and bring them with you!
The first woman to claim a ProSolo title since 2005, and the ONLY one to claim both ProSolo and National Championship in an Open Class.
Solo RAL and Jeff Gordon Challenge winners.
2022 Solo Nats It's that time of year. National Championships. First up, are the autocrossers. Over September 6-9, they will return to Lincoln Airpark in Lincoln, Nebraska. This year, the New England Region is sending 32 drivers in an attempt to maintain it's standing as producing some of the most talented and competitive solo racers in the country. Last year, FIVE NER drivers claimed Solo National Championship titles, with nine more finishing with trophy placements. In a twist on the preview of "Who Will Win?", instead of the editors and staff at SportsCar giving their opinions, they are having a little fun and putting it out for a member poll. Of course, more than a few familiar NER names on already on those poll lists, so go have some fun voting for our drivers!

Follow along as we honor the women at your track, behind the wheel and behind the scenes, and appreciate and thank them for their impact and passion in all areas of the SCCA. Daily posts will be made on the SCCA Women on Track Facebook Page. First up, is NER's own Jojo Corrales-Kean. SCCA WoT Round 1 Article Jojo Corrales New England Region Autocross, RallyCross 10-year member Jojo Corrales-Kean got her first taste of Autocross in 2010, after buying a MINI Cooper S, despite her brother PJ’s suggestion to buy an S2000. “I’m not going to buy a car just for Autocross,” she said. After doing just a handful of events, Jojo jumped into a full season of Autocross in 2012.
