° Majors class but not Runoffs-eligible — * Divisional-only (non-Runoffs) class
For 2020 the MiDiv class groupings are aligned with the Majors groupings, and then the non-Runoffs classes are added in. While these are recommended as minimum groupings for MiDiv Races, individual races may group classes as best fits their program.
A new Runoffs-eligible class in 2020 is FX (which incudes FM and F4 cars and some F2000s); FM is no longer a separate class. FB is now included in FA. A new non-runoffs class is PX (includes DP and GTP cars). FE is now a regional-only class. Gone is IT7.
Ownership of a reserved number is not a guarantee of being able to use that number at any given race. It is recommended drivers have alternate numbers in mind with a plan of how to change it so it is most legible to timing, corners, etc. The easiest alternative may simply be to add a “1” to the front of the number. 1-plus numbers will not be sold in MiDiv but are allowed in the GCR.
At the end of the season, MidAm Championship awards are sent to the drivers’ Regional Executives for presentation at Regional award banquets. A driver must finish top-3 in class and make at least three starts in MiDiv races at two tracks sanctioned by two different Regions in the same class to be eligible for awards.
The MiDiv “Number Season” is now under way. All MiDiv drivers have been sent a letter with the Reserved Number Application/Renewal form. Those drivers who raced their number at least three times in 2019 will have that number held for renewal until Feb. 5. Drivers seeking a new number may call or e-mail for a courtesy one-week hold on any available number.
If you have questions, or did not receive your 2020 renewal letter, please contact me.
