The 2022 Tire Rack SCCA Time Trials Nationals Powered by Hagerty saw 150 competitors descend on Kentucky’s NCM Motorsports Park May 12-15.

The weekend offered plenty to celebrate, from podium finishes to setting personal records.

GRM contributor and tire abuser Andy Hollis snagged three awards behind the wheel of his 1988 Honda CRX: first place in the Max 5 class, a track record of 2:19.589 in that same class, and Fastest Classic presented by Classic Motorsports Magazine.

Plus, friend of GRM Tom O’Gorman set the fastest lap time of the weekend, 5:54.665, and nabbed the top spot in the Unlimited 1 class in a 2019 Chevrolet Corvette–the same one that won first overall in the 2022 Tire Rack One Lap of America Presented by Grassroots Motorsports.
