The main goal of SCCA Women on Track program is to get women more involved in the SCCA, be it as participants, volunteers, leaders or supporters.

Fitting, then, that the initiative will present scholarships to 14 recipients–ranging from Road Racing to RallyCross and more–for the 2024 season.

In total, those scholarships add up to more than $11,000:

  • SCCA Road Racing Drivers’ School Scholarship: $1000 given to two recipients to attend an SCCA Drivers School.
  • National Time Trials Scholarship: $1000 given to one recipient to put toward attending the 2024 Time Trials Nationals, and $500 will be given to two recipients to put toward attending the 2024 SCCA Time Trials National Tour.
  • Wendi Allen Solo Scholarship: $1500 given to three recipients to support travel to National Solo events as well as the Solo National Championships.
  • Runoffs Volunteer Scholarship: $500 given to two recipients to assist with travel to the 2024 National Championship Runoffs.
  • RallyCross Nationals Scholarship: $500 given to two recipients to assist with travel to the 2024 RallyCross National Championships.
  • RoadRally Scholarship: $500 given to two recipients to assist with travel to the 2024 United States RoadRally Challenge.

Entry fees for all National Solo events will be waived for those receiving scholarships and the program will also “work with the Solo community and commercial partners to seek out other forms of support for the recipients, such as driver training, mentoring, products, and logistical assistance.”

SCCA Women on Track is currently accepting applications, with the deadline for the SCCA Road Racing Drivers’ School Scholarship, the National Time Trials Scholarship, and the Wendi Allen Solo Scholarship being January 12, 2024. Receipients will be announced on January 26, 2024.

The deadline for the Runoffs Volunteer, RallyCross Nationals, and RoadRally scholarships is May 31, 2024, with the recipients set to be announced sometime in June 2024.

I did my part. Trans Am champ Amy Ruman got her competition license using one of my cars back in about '94 or '95. Her dad didn't think it was wise to plug her into his Rocketsports built GT1 car for the SCCA driver schools.

I failed.  Neither of my daughters is remotely interested in car things. They do humor me when I try to teach them how to change the oil in their cars and other maintenance like that..  sad

In reply to Msterbee :

I'm trying to take it slow. My daughter just turned 3, and my plan is to gradually expose her to more and more car stuff and not try to force it. With any luck, something will stick.

There's promise, though: On a recent outing on my father-in-law's boat, she kept asking to go faster.
