TOPEKA, Kan. (August 16, 2012) – With points tallied from all nine BFGoodrich Tires SCCA Super Tour races in 2012, six drivers clinched top category honors including cash and product awards, and are in contention for the top prize – a custom painted Bell helmet commemorating the series title.
National class racers were divided into six categories, with the top two point scorers earning $500 and the third-ranked driver earning $200. Points for the BFGoodrich Tires Super Tour were calculated based on the SCCA SaferRacer National Series Point Structure, including bonus points.
Each of the six drivers will be awarded a set of BFGoodrich Tires that can be used on either the street or the race track.
In addition to the cash and product prizes, BFGoodrich Tires has placed each of the six category top point earners into a drawing for a helmet custom painted by Indocil Art. The custom design will be a joint collaboration between the winning driver and Indocil Art, who does helmets for Denny Hamlin, Joey Logano, Kyle Busch, Michael McDowell, and Austin Dillon, amongst many others.
The grand prize drawing will be held during the SCCA National Championship Runoffs at Road America, Sept. 18-23.
