The National Auto Sport Association (NASA) has announced the formation of a new national rally championship for the 2013 season.
It will be the first NASA National Rally Championship, and will introduce a new format for determining overall national champions. The structure of the series is designed to determine the fastest rally drivers in the nation while still remaining accessible to grassroots racers by minimizing travel costs and entry fees.
The structure of the championship is inspired by the NASA’s successful annual road racing championship event, the NASA National Championships presented by Toyo Tires.
Rallyists around the country will compete in various National Qualifier events and series in order to be eligible for the National Championship. Those who qualify, via a variety of methods, will go head-to-head with each other at a winner-takes-all finale event.
The two teams that win their respective classes, Two Wheel Drive and All Wheel Drive, will be crowned the National Champions.
NASA Rally Sport (NRS), the rally arm of NASA’s organization, will also offer Atlantic and Pacific Cup series along with significant incentives to help potential competitors get to the national championship finale. The venue for the championship event will change each year so competitors and organizers can all have a shot at participating in the big event.
