  • DirtFish SCCA National Championship 2018 - Who Will Win?

    Now that the National Championship is full up and we know who is attending who do you think will win? There is so much talent that picking one person to win is ridiculously tough. All I know is looking at the competition this year in each class there should be some really great battles for the top spots. Good luck to all competitors.

    In PA where I am running I think Mark Hill, Shane Blankenship, Cliff Kangas and Harold Denham are all extremely fast. It will be extremely tough to beat any of these guys. I am thinking Mark Hill is the guy to beat this year.

    Surprisingly low turnout from the Colorado area. Ryan Dussex is going to be hard to beat in PR...

    MR could be in for a surprise as the car and driver that were runner up in PR in 2016 are back, this time with v6 power...

    personally, I’m disappointed there aren’t more entries in the Constructors classes

      Oh oh me me me!

      I predict me to win MA this year.

      Then again, I always do.


      I second Ryan Dussex for PR. He has come a long way this season and I was glad to see him sign up for nats.

      If his car survives I think Bret Hunter will take another MF win.

      SF - I'm hoping for Kieth but Don is always so dang fast.

      SR - hopefully the 350Z because that would be cool

      SA - after getting his first win last year I think a more relaxed ZB will do it again

      PF - roll the dice on this class. I think four or five drivers have a shot

      PA - 99% chance the winner will be named "Mark", 50/50 it'll be a Subaru or Mitsubishi.

      MR - Brianne

      Constructor - Jim only because I always root for the codriver.

        I wish there were half as many people on here talking about the event as there are signed up for it...

          There's a lot of names I don't know signed up, so I'll stick to rooting for some of my home town heros!

          SF - Hoping the ferrari of Keith Lightfoot can put down the times I know its capable of
          PR - Shawn Roberts will be very hard to beat. Fast driver, and he's campaigned that car successfully for years. But, I have high hopes for Ryan Dussex. He is butter smooth, fast right out of the gate, and consistently fast after that. Plus the long wheel base 4 door BMW makes it super stable on high speed sweeping turns like we get in indianola.
          MF - As long as it starts, and stays running, Bret Hunter and his CRX
          MR - I'd love to take home the trophy, but I am strapped for cash as my significant other makes a career change and will only be able to bring gravel tires this year. Add to that a fresh motor swap that I'm coming to terms with... If I can wrangle in the MR2 it'll be quick, but Doug's beetle is already a proven combination of lightweight and simple, and the supercharged miatas buzzing around are always fast. Maybe it'll be Brianne. I've heard she's quick.
          MA - Going for the upset here. Susan Lawson. She's been getting very fast this year, but she's doing so clean. Max will be fast, but he'll be dirty (that's his style!) and Susan's calm and consistent demeanor will have her creep into to the top spot when others are laying everything on the line and picking up cones.

            SF - Don or Chang
            SR - No idea, but I'd love to see one of the oddball cars win it, such as Jim Golden in the S2000 or Ryan Miles with the Boxster
            SA - I'd love to see our local Pete Schaefer win, but he's got a cone problem. Likely going to be Jan again, though I'm excited to see a Focus RS running!
            PF - Me! Honestly, it'll be tough fight between Bob, Greg, Jim, myself and who knows else! Course design is really going to play a huge role in determining the winner.
            PR - Knife fight between Shawn Roberts, Myles Goertz, and Kyle Nilson.
            PA - Again rooting for a local, Shane B in his Stealth. The two Mark's will be tough competition.
            MF - Bret if he can keep the car from breaking.
            MR - Brianne has cleaned up at the Challenges this year but there should be some decent challengers between Vaughn, Doug, and others
            MA - Max, Warren, and others will all be in the running. Really hoping Jon O get's his Isuzu Impulse w/ Cadillac V8 running for the event

              Love the official WWW picks on the main SCCA page. It's always great to not be a target. I still have my Warren was wrong tee from a few years back! See you all next week in the wet and cold.

                It's a collectors item now! Wonder what I can grab on eBay for it! Haha! Good fun as always and MA was a BATTLE!
