Topic: NASTE 2021 Point Series Championship

This might be a good time to start discussing the NASTE 2021 Point Series Championship.

Things we could start thinking about are a start date for the series, any changes that might be made to the format, and the classes to be raced for the championship.

Racing for many of the past series started in September, but with this COVID 19 situation I'm sure everyone has concerns about when to start gathering together.

A tentative date has been set for the annual NASTE Halloween Race. October 31st is on a Saturday this year and Howie has agreed to have Rapid Raceway host the race again this year on that date. Depending on when everyone is comfortable to start getting together the Halloween Race could also be a kick off race for the 20121 season.

Please post up any concerns or ideas you might have! Let's start the dialog!

The NASTE Point Series Championship was moved to races held on Odd Thursdays awhile back. The IROC races were no longer scored as part of the Point Series Championship. I feel this is now the best venue and format for the Point Series Championship. There is much more of a competitive feel to the Odd Thursday night races in my opinion, therefore more pertinent to a point series. The IROC races had their own championship.

The Saturday Halloween  thing through me off.with that said has there been any thought of a second track being added to the Thursday  night  list. I DONT think Al going to hoisting any races till these covid19 issue is truly well behind us.

Just to clarify, the Halloween race does not count for points.

I have not heard of any plans, comments, or ideas about adding tracks to the line up. There are some nice new tracks out there that could surely be added if the interest is there!

Thanks for that vote of confidence Doc!

I'm just about ready to start the tear down for the upgrades I'm planning. The 180 degree hairpin should be coming off by the end of next week.

Yeah I had plans on redoing my table and track but it is way to hot in the garage  to do anything right now.

My shop stays nice and cool. I suppose if I keep the overhead door open that won't be the case. But fortunately there is still some left to do with the door closed!
