NCMA is excited to be celebrating the 30th season of competition this year. What began in 1987 as an affordable open wheel class that could travel to different tracks, has developed into a very competitive series that saw 5 different winners last season. While the speeds and quality of the equipment has increased each season, the focus on providing a cost effective platform with a dependable tire and engine package has never wavered.
This season NCMA will celebrating the drivers, crews and tracks that have played such an important role in the longevity of the series. Planning is under way to have some of the past champions and series drivers featured at key events throughout the year.
In the NEWS; long time NCMA friend and racer Bill Logan passed away on Sunday, July 30th. After a long fight with cancer Bill was called to the short track in the sky. Bill was a member of NCMA and also belonged to USAC and NARC and enjoyed open wheel racing on dirt and pavement. He was always fun to be around and had a smile on his face. He is going to be missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. “Celebration of Life” ceremony for Bill Logan on Sunday, April 13th at 2:00 pm. The event will be at the Summer Place Social Center, 8318 Manhattan Drive, Stockton, CA.
NCMA now has four races in the books and Rookie Charlie Huff leads the points followed by the veterans of David Burchett and Denny Burrell. The season is shaping up to be an interesting one as we head into the last three races of the season. The last two races which were over the July 4th weekend in Lakeport and Ukiah Speedway’s. Both of these tracks have a really great fan base and staffs that are wonderful to work with. We look forward to making the return trip to both of these facilities next year and want to thank the fans for being so good to NCMA.
