 2008 Holiday Office Hours

Just like our riders, we look forward to the Holiday Season to spend time with our families and friends so here are the 2008 Holiday Hours for the ASRA/CCS main office.

In observance of Thanksgiving, the office will close Wednesday and Thursday November 26th and 27th.

For the Christmas Holiday, we will close from December 24th to January 5th. During this period we will continue to process the mail and faxes that arrive, along with answering e-mail, there just won't be anyone in the office to receive or return phone calls.

Remember the 2009 License Renewal deadline is January 2, 2009 so if you anticipate having a question or problem, you'll need to call the office before we close for the holidays.

Thanks for you support and we look forward to seeing you in 2009!

Merry Christmas!

Two Days of Racing at Eagles Canyon

CCS South's Travis Marshall has announced that the November 15th & 16th at Eagles Canyon Raceway will have two full days of racing. The Racer Practice Day will be on Friday, November 14th, followed by racing both Saturday and Sunday.

Saturday will feature "make-up" races for the cancelled MSR Houston event allowing the previously committed contingencies to be paid along with single CCS South regional points. Sunday's races will pay double points as well as additional contingency benefits.


Moroso Rescheduled to November CANCELLED

The construction at Moroso Motorsports Park is taking longer than anticipated. Therefore, the CCS Florida race (rescheduled from October to November) has been cancelled.

See the October 1 Press Release for complete details.


MSR Houston Cancelled due to Hurricane Damage

CCS Racing October 4-5 at MSR Houston has been cancelled.

According to Track Officials, the race track itself sustained minimal damage. However, damages were extensive to homes and businesses throughout the area causing many residents to seek temporary shelter in nearby hotels and motels.

It was deemed necessary to cancel the race to keep visitors out of the area and allow them to handle their hurricane clean-up and repair efforts more effectively.

Ty Howard Fastest at Eagles Canyon

Ty Howard was the fastest on the track, bringing home the lap record of 1:49.470.

Other activities included a live band on Saturday night, a play area for the kids, and a track ride to benefit Ride For Kids.

MSR Houston

 Reminder: ASRA/CCS Now Pays Cash Contingency Instead of Purses!

Beginning in 2008, ASRA/CCS cash awards will be paid by contingency check instead of purse checks at the event. To be eligible for these awards, you must turn in a properly completed contingency form for each series at each event and have tech officials verify you have met the requirement to receive these awards.

To receive ASRA Pro or Team Challenge Contingency, you must fill out the ASRA contingency form completely, including Social Security or EIN number, and have the tech inspector verify ASRA stickers in place on the machine. You must fill out a form for each machine used in competition. Team Challenge Contingency will be paid to the registered team captain. Failure to meet any of the requirements will result in the contingency request being denied.

The riders and Teams listed below met the criteria for payment and have been sent their Daytona Contingency from ASRA as of March 19, 2008. If you are not listed, you did not turn in a correctly complete contingency form or did not meet the sticker requirement as published.
