Kumho Tires 12 Hours at the Point Field Fills in Record Time!

8 February 2006: If you were thinking about entering the 8th Annual Kumho Tires 12 Hours at the Point, then you had best hope that someone from your team already submitted an entry. At 1PM today, the Region accepted the first entry for the June 23-24, 2006 endurance race for sports cars and sedans. Less than 35 minutes later, the field of 55 had been filled and the first wait-list entry had been accepted.

"The electronic entry procedure worked fantastic," said a DC Region official. This year's 12 Hours at the Point marked the first time that the historic race would accept electronic entries only. According to the official, "the demand for this year's 12 Hour exceeded what I expected. That we filled the field in a little over thirty minutes is a testament to the popularity of this event and the sport given to us by Kumho Tires."

"If you were late getting into the 12 Hour, there still is some hope for you," said Jeff Janoska. "We have room for a few additional wait list teams and some of the folks who entered may have cold feet. I wouldn't bet the farm on it happening though," added Janoska.

Like all SCCA races at Summit Point, the Kumho Tires 12 Hours at the Point will take place rain or shine and is open to spectators. For more information and the latest news, please visit www.12hoursatthepoint.net.
