Sports Car Club of America announced a multi-year partnership in which SafeRacer will become the title sponsor of the National Club Racing program. The approximately 70-race National program will be referred to as the "SafeRacer SCCA National Racing Series" beginning in 2010.
"SafeRacer has supported the Club Racing program in various ways over the last several years and we're excited that it has expanded its support to become the sponsor of the National Racing Series," SCCA President and CEO Jeff Dahnert said. "One of our main focuses this year will be on developing partnerships that not only support SCCA's business, but its participant members as well."
As part of the sponsorship, SafeRacer will provide $15,000 in certificates to be distributed to class Champions in the nationwide points championship. The nationwide points Championship combines divisional Championship points and bonus points for the number of racers a driver finishes ahead of to crown one overall points Champion each year.
In addition, SafeRacer will offer direct product discounts to participants in the SafeRacer SCCA National Racing Series. "We are a company made up of SCCA racers and we're excited to be able to support our fellow racers with the SafeRacer SCCA National Racing Series," SafeRacer CEO Charlie James said.
Racers competing in Nationally sanctioned events will replace the traditional "SCCA Club Racing" decal with the new SafeRacer SCCA National Racing Series decal as part of the program. Decals will be available soon at no charge for the first set and will be required for all races after March 1, 2010.
