Hundreds of car enthusiasts from across the country will take turns running their cars over courses marked by orange traffic cones on the taxiways of the Lincoln Airport this week.
The annual Sports Car Club of America Tire Rack Solo Nationals, billed as one of the world's largest motorsports events with more than 1,300 participants, opened Tuesday and continues through Friday with on-track activity at the Lincoln Air Park.
The races, where competitors run their sports cars over each of two tight, technical courses incorporating fast, flowing turns, are not large spectator events but they are free to watch. Most on-track events take place between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Access the area is from Northwest 36th and Mathis streets.
Preliminary events began last weekend with the ProSolo Finale.
The national championships have been in Lincoln since 2009.
