NASCAR Whelen All-American Series 30-Day License Announced
Move to Help Competitors Looking to Compete in Second Half

NASCAR announced today the implementation of a 30-day membership license option for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series, a move geared towards helping out competitors who look to become involved during the second half of the season.

The licenses will be available beginning July 15, 2010, at NASCAR Whelen All-American Series sanctioned tracks, and will cover Feature Division, Charger Division, Learners Permits and crew member licenses.

“This is something our tracks told us is an important intermediate step to be available for them to offer potential new competitors,” said George Silbermann, NASCAR managing director of racing operations. “The NASCAR Whelen All-American Series membership brings with it a number of advantages, from the involvement in the season-ending points fund, competing for state and national championships, to our industry-leading medical and accident coverage insurance.

“We feel the ability to offer these types of benefits for drivers or crew who may be getting a late start to the season but who still wish to compete in NASCAR events during the second half of the year, or who may be testing the waters at season’s end with an eye towards next year, is key to helping our NASCAR Whelen All-American Series tracks continue to put on the high-level of competition our fans have come to expect.”

Holders of a 30-day license may upgrade to a full-year license at any time during the 30-calendar-day period, and apply the cost of the initial license to the full-year fee.

Only drivers with a full-year membership will be eligible for season-ending points fund distribution and other season-long awards.
