It has never been easier or cheaper for a dirt track to gain sanctioning with one of the nation’s premier sanctioning bodies. Tracks who wish to become members of the FASTRAK Racing Series banner can now do so for just $1 per year in sanctioning fees as part of a new partnership with DealergroupUSA.
FASTRAK announced the reduced sanctioning fee Tuesday on its Facebook page, part of an effort to increase affordability for weekly sanctioning and bring more tracks into the FASTRAK family.
“Thanks to our new partnership with DealergroupUSA, we are able to implement this new idea for weekly sanctioning,” said FASTRAK Vice President DJ Irvine, “This makes the entire program more affordable for our tracks. Without tracks, the drivers don’t have a place to race and fans won’t have a place to watch the races. We want to do our part to help tracks remain open.”
FASTRAK member tracks pay out points towards FASTRAK’s National Weekly Championship. In 2019, Kyle Thomas was awarded $5,000 as the FASTRAK National Weekly Champion, but FASTRAK has pledged to provide a $30,000-to-win National Championship and a points fund paying through the top 50 positions if 20 weekly tracks can commit to the FASTRAK Racing Series averaging 12 cars per week.
Along with the national points fund, FASTRAK member racers receive participant accident medical insurance, discounts on select Simpson Race Products and more.
Any tracks that run Pro Late Models as a weekly division or are considering adding them to their weekly program are encouraged to contact DJ Irvine at 706-223-3014 or by email at [email protected].
