Locke Competes in Sports Car Club of America’s 48th National Championship Runoffs at Road America

David A. Locke, a partner in the Stuart & Branigin law firm, recently competed in the Sports Car Club of America’s 2011 National Championship Runoffs for top amateur racing drivers.

Each year thousands of amateur racers in 28 classes compete in more than 70 club racing events in the SCCA’s nine geographic divisions.  The top-scoring drivers in each division receive invitations to the National Championship Runoffs, an interdivisional event that brings together the best amateur racers in the U.S. and Canada for championship races in each of the SCCA’s 28 classes at Road America, a four-mile road course near Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.

Locke was invited to compete at the 2011 Runoffs in D Sports Racing, the SCCA’s fastest class.  He finished 5th in the national championship race with the only stock engine in the 16-car field.  His best lap was more than five seconds faster than the pole position time for the 2011 NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Road America.

Locke, a trial and appellate lawyer, is a 1995 graduate of the Indiana University Maurer School of Law in Bloomington.  He holds memberships in the Defense Trial Counsel of Indiana, the Defense Research Institute, and the National Association of Railroad Trial Counsel.
