Yes this is still a ROAR sanction series.

When a racer registers for the race. He/She will be required to show their ROAR card.

You will not be allowed to race if you do not have a ROAR card.

Also all Tracks must be a ROAR members.

I prefer Jet Fuel...Military grade... If you need anything or any questions concerning the series, just holler. My racing is going to take a back seat this year but will be out when I can.

Default State Director

Been away from on road racing for awhile. Who is the 2016-2017 State race director ? Where does one find the 2016-2017 GT 17.5 rules as I asked awhile back.

And what compound was used in 2015-2016? Do we know what the spec tire is? Is it different for carpet vs asphalt?

A couple of quick questions. Will ROAR be needed to run in the promoters class and is the fee to race the same as a state series class? Also for the outdoor tracks what is the rain policy for an official race. Thanks, Dave.

It is the tracks responsibility to check Roar cards
You have to be a Roar member regardless of promoters class or regular class
