CFR SCCA Presents
May 5-6th 2018 – 9am – 4pm Daily
Daytona International Speedway
A few words from the event staff
Welcome to the CFR SCCA 2018 Showcase here at the proclaimed World Center of Racing, Daytona International Speedway (DIS). The Central Florida Region and DIS are honored to have you as our guests. If you were here last year with us we welcome you back and for those joining us for the first time welcome to the club that is no secret.
We celebrate our love of cars in so many ways. Posters on our bedroom walls to the matchbox toy cars that litter our room as kids and to our desks as we grow up. We remember our first experience seeing our obsession for the first time either in parking lots or at the track. From grassroots to pro races, we’re all in for the love of cars.
Now it’s your turn. The Central Florida Region Sports car Club of America (SCCA) has your way in. We can help bring your dream of being part of cars and racing to life. Whether it’s marshaling a corner or being behind the wheel, we have something for you.
Thank you for joining us for the 2018 Showcase Weekend. We hope that you will partake in the many different things we have to offer. Start by heading in to the Fan Zone and taking a Walking Tour with us. Let us show you the garages and the different stations of how a club race happens. Let us introduce you to our staff and let you know how you can become a part of a club that not only leads to a lifetime of memories but also friendships. SCCA Club Racing is how you can work your way up to volunteering at a Pro Race like the Rolex 24 that is held right here at Daytona International Speedway. The best way to start is to start right here, right now so just ask how!
Make sure to join us on Saturday at 12:20 our first ever CFR SCCA Fan Walk. Get a closer look at the cars and meet the drivers as they grid for their 90 minutes Enduro race. You may even have a chance to meet SCCA President, Mike Cobb, one of our most active President’s to date! And if you ever want to see the start and finish line up close, this is your chance. Just like the Pro Races the CFR brings this all to you.
While you are in the Fan Zone sign up to take a ride-a-long experience in one of our three events: Track Events, RallyCross or Autocross. Our Track Event drivers will take you as a passenger out on the Rolex 24 Hour course, our RallyCross drivers will take you out on a dirt course and our Autocross drivers will race thru the cones. And if “you” want to get behind the wheel we’ll tell you how so that you can make your next event with us.
Excited? Ramped up? Good! Now, let’s go play with cars!
Thank you for being here with us today!

Registration for this opportunity is in the Fan Zone at the Walking Tour Tent. There you will complete a Club Racing Volunteer Membership form (Free). Once the membership form is complete you will receive a second wristband, then a SCCA Official will take you out to a live corner during a qualifier or race, introduce you to that Corner Marshal’s staff who will show you the ropes. You never know you may even get the opportunity to flag a race car.
This opportunity requires long pants, close toed shoes and the ability to stand for an extended period of time.

We’ll start out in the Fan Zone and go through the garages where you can see grassroots racers prepare their cars for their next qualifier or race, then go over to a corner station where you can watch our corner marshal’s in action, we’ll then take you over to grid where our Grid Bunny’s get drivers ready to go out on track and then finish the loop back in the Fan Zone.
The best part is that if you want to find out more we’ll make it happen. Our SCCA members are family and we welcome you to talk to us to find out what it is we do and how you can join in on the fun.
