The 1978 Can-Am season was the eleventh running of the Sports Car Club of America's prototype based series and the second running of the revived series. Alan Jones was declared champion,[1] winning five of the ten rounds. Chevrolet again swept the season. Lola was not as dominant this season, as Elliot Forbes-Robinson won at Charlotte in a Spyder,[2] SCCA legend George Follmer at Mont Tremblant in a Prophet,[3] and Forbes-Robinson again at Trois-Rivieres.[4]
