it ha sbeen brought to my attention that there is indeed interest in a pro/am series– despite the post that has been up for months with only 20 replies by the same 3 people–
so here is what i propose– 4 races– one for each track– on locals– not state series, since it already has opens.
money to be determined soon–
see what people think and grow from there– but i will need each track to help me out with this, as i will need what dates they would like and such..

run it with the fall seriesMarch 15, 2007 at 6:58 pm #42046
trilogy have anything fun in the fall?March 15, 2007 at 7:22 pm #42047guinnessextremeMember
I think at this point in the game, it would be best to put all our energy into a kickbut fall series. Tie in all 4 tracks with one big race each.March 15, 2007 at 7:26 pm #42049
Napper has a 4th of july race, start it there, run it through the fall races.
Do it, set it up and run it.March 15, 2007 at 7:47 pm #42050RFarsideMember
Dave don’t stress on this. This could be run at this years state races with no problem (its not to late). But for some reason they didn’t want it. Running this as a local race makes no sense to me at all. They know what was needed to make this happen and they dropped the ball.March 15, 2007 at 7:52 pm #42051
I say we do it. Set it up, run it, do the whole thing ourselves, keep track of the points for ourselves. All we need to do is have you guys walk up to registration, tell them you want to run a pro-am class and do it.
We keep track of our own stuff. These are older guys, they can handle it.
We don’t need someone to do this for us, we just need the sanction to handle the insurance.
Think of it as a first step in taking over, and also showing everyone that racers can handle setting up and running things, ourselves.March 15, 2007 at 8:05 pm #42053BIGANT-DOGMember
Do we need our own scorers If so I volunteer, I don’t think I am ready to race in the series (not his this year) But i can be a scorer BTW I will take bribes —March 15, 2007 at 8:10 pm #42054

Maybe get a local sponsor like the Hyper Pro Am series.
Each race at the 4 tracks is 100% payback plus added money from a 50/50.
It would make a great Summer series event.
Hyper kicks in some cash for the top 3 Pros/A Pros/B Pros/Superclass/Elite or whatever they call the Pro class nowadays in NBL. $100-1st, $60-2nd and $40-3rd for the end of series awards. Plus the top 3 Am get prizes from Hyper and its sponsors. Like a Hyper frameset to the top Am in the series, a Hyper Uniform with jersey signed by Rich Farside for Second and a set of bars or something for third.
Since its underground you can charge $15 to the pros racing for cash and the Ams pay like $5 each race but although they race the pros they dont get any of the cash just the glory of beating a pro or at least racing one and a chance for a cool prize at the end of the series.
All the prizes wouldnt have to come from the title sponsor, other companies could be asked to donate something and you could have a bunch more prizes then you think.March 16, 2007 at 5:20 pm #42105
