Miller Park Racing Association to be Co-Sanctioned by National Auto Sport Association
TOOELE VALLEY, UTAH (March 26, 2009) -- Officials at Miller Motorsports Park announced today that a co-sanctioning agreement has been reached between the track and the National Auto Sport Association (NASA) that will result in the Miller Park Racing Association (MPRA) being co-sanctioned by NASA.
Four of NASA's national classes will be represented among the MPRA's eight classes: Super Touring, Performance Touring, Spec Miata and Super Unlimited. The dual classifications will allow competitors to be eligible for the NASA National Championships to be held at Miller Motorsports Park September 10-13 with a minimum of five race starts.
"This is a great move for Miller Motorsports Park, the MPRA and its competitors," said Mitch Wright, Director of Racing for Miller Motorsports Park. "NASA is an innovative, fast-growing and forward-looking organization, and we anticipate a long and mutually beneficial relationship."
"We are thrilled to be affiliated with Miller Motorsports Park and the Miller Park Racing Association," said Ryan Flaherty, NASA National Chairman. "Miller Motorsports Park is well known as one of the finest racing facilities in the world, and the MPRA fits in very nicely with the structure that already exists within NASA. We're very excited to announce this partnership, and we look forward to holding our National Championship races there this year as well as more exciting developments in the years to come."
NASA was formed in 1991 to promote racing events and high-performance driver education throughout North America. NASA hosts High Performance Driving Events (HPDE), automotive rallies, time trials, autocross and amateur, club-level automotive racing, divided amongst regionally-based chapters within the United States.
The MPRA, which was formed in 2006, is a regional auto racing series created and sponsored by Miller Motorsports Park to build local and regional racing. Miller Motorsports Park has organized, sanctioned and subsidized the cost of racing in order to assist local and regional racers. Drivers compete for trophies and points toward the championship in 11 classes: Open Wheel, Sport Racer, Spec Miata, Legends Cars, Mustang Challenge, GT, GT3, Super Production, Super Sport, Touring and Thunder Roadsters.
