USERA Spec Miata Endurance Championship to be Sanctioned by SCCA Pro Racing.
DANVILLE, VA. (January 9, 2006) – The United States Endurance Racing Association, Inc. announced today that it has reached an agreement with SCCA Pro Racing, Ltd., of Topeka, KS for SCCA Pro Racing to provide sanction of the 2006 USERA Spec Miata Endurance Championship. Any competitor holding an SCCA Competition License or SCCA Course Marshal License will earn credit on their SCCA license for participating in the Spec Miata Endurance Championship.
“We are very pleased that SCCA Pro Racing will be sanctioning our Championship,” said USERA President, Ken Grammer. “SCCA Pro Racing has been the ultimate name in race sanctions in America for over 60 years and having them as our sanction partner demonstrates not only our commitment to excellence, but our desire to provide the highest quality Championship series to our participants.”
The Spec Miata Endurance Championship will consist of three hour or longer races culminating with a season ending Driver and Team Champion. USERA is planning a six race schedule for 2006 with $10k per race in base prize money.
“We’re pleased to be a part of the inaugural season of USERA Spec Miata Endurance Championship racing,” SCCA Pro Racing Acting President Garret Mudd said. “The format provides an excellent grassroots endurance racing opportunity that did not previously exist in the United States. This fits in nicely with the other opportunities that are available to Miata enthusiasts through SCCA Club Racing and the all new SCCA Pro Racing Mazda MX-5 Cup.”
