 2017 To Be Final Season For NMCA WEST Drag Racing

NMCA WEST has announced that 2017 will be the final season of its Southern California West Coast drag racing series. 


With the “incredible” growth ProMedia Events has seen with its NMRA and NMCA East Coast series, the sanctioning body says “it has become imperative to open available weekends for future East coast events and focus valuable resources and energies where the company will see the most growth and opportunity.” 


The series will, however, continue its popular Hotchkis NMCA WEST Auto-X Series presented by Nitto Tire, which is said to regularly sell out and attract many of the top West Coast autocross participants at the Auto Club Dragway in California. More information, including a 2018 schedule, will be released at a further date.


“We have made so many good friends in West Coast drag racing and will miss seeing them on a regular basis,” said Steve Wolcott President & CEO of NMCA WEST. “The entire NMCA WEST team thanks our racers and sponsors for their support and we wish them all the best in the future. We also appreciate our special relationship with Auto Club Dragway and know that the track will attract additional events for West Coast drag racers.”


NMCA WEST will host a special champions dinner to recognize and celebrate all 2017 class champions. With the date and location to be announced, class champions (except brackets) will each receive a championship victor award and Nitto Tire Diamond Tree Champion’s ring.


NMCA WEST reported members will continue to receive their subscription to Fastest Street Car magazine. Members will have their Fastest Street Car magazine subscription increased on a 3:1 basis (for example – 4 months remaining will be increased to a 12-month subscription). No action is necessary for NMCA WEST members who want the increased subscription.


NMCA WEST members may also request a pro-rated refund. Please contact Jamie Fasbender at 714/444-2426 X118 or jfasbender@promediapub.com for a pro-rated refund.
