Who Do YOU Think Should Be In
the SCCA Hall of FAME?

Now is the time for you to have your say!!

The purpose of the Sports Car Club of America Hall of Fame is to preserve, protect and record the history and accomplishments of the Club for current and future members by recognizing those members who have had a significant impact on the Club and the sport. This may be through service to the national organization, achievements in competition, advancement of the sport, or bringing recognition to the SCCA that inspires enthusiasts to seek out and become members of the SCCA.

Starting in 2005, eleven annual classes have inducted 65 Members into the Hall of Fame. You can see those members here. Seven members will be inducted at the SCCA National Convention in 2017, five from the normal nominating process and two additional Legacy inductees from the first third of the Club's history. The nominating process for that class starts now!!

Any SCCA member can place a name in nomination. You can start by reviewing your home region and home division; you will usually know who has contributed and made an impact to the Club. Another place to look for potential candidates are the Club members that attracted you to SCCA to begin with and those who have been role models for you in your time with SCCA.

The nomination process is easy!
A successful nomination will:
  • Be approximately two pages in length
  • Summarize the individual's background and reasons for consideration
  • Provide more than just a resume. Its goal is to help the Nomination and Selection Committees understand why and how the person was impactful to the Club
  • An online form for your submission is available here.
  • A fillable form you can download and complete offline is available here. It can be sent to or SCCA Hall of Fame, 6620 SE Dwight St; Topeka, KS 66619
  • Be submitted BEFORE June 1st, the cut-off date for all nominations. Note that this is a significant earlier date than previous years! Nominations received after the cut-off date will be placed in consideration for the following year.

Multiple independent nominations will be gladly accepted; however, word-for-word identical nominations are not valuable and will waste both your time and the Committees' time.

This is your chance to leave a permanent mark on the SCCA Club, by being the one responsible for nominating a member of next year's Hall of Fame class.
