  CARC Prepares for the 2015 Season

     In preparation of the 2015 Colorado Automobile Racing Club Racing season,
the club has scheduled a general meeting for CARC members, drivers, car owners,
fans and ANYONE interested in the future of Modified Coupe racing in 2015 & beyond.
                                The meeting is scheduled for:
May 21st (Thursday)/ 7pm at Red & Jerry's
    The CARC has scheduled a 4 race season at Big Country Speedway in Cheyenne.
The races will be run together with the High Plains Modifieds (HPM). However, each
club will have a separate point championship and race payout. Races are scheduled on:
June 13, July 18, August 22 and September 12
  
To date, the CARC has in-hand.... a $3,000 fund (separate from regular club funds) to
pay the race purse. MORE money is on the way!!!  Numerous individuals & corporate
sponsors have contributed to this fund.
   Obviously, car count will be a big factor in individual payouts. At this time, the club has
secured $80 in compensation(per car) from the speedway. CARC anticipates augmenting
this with a minimum of $120(per car) in sponsorship funds.
                This results in an estimated total of $200 per car per race.
  
Additional types of BONUS awards (lucky dog, repeat attendance, top finishers etc.)
are being considered by club officials.
   2015 CARC car rules are published on the CARC website modcoupes.com  These rules
basically mirror the 2014 CARC Car rules with some changes.

           YOUR ATTENDANCE & INPUTS AT THIS MEETING ARE CRITICAL.
                             PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDAR.
                            THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT
      
QUESTIONS  TO CARC PRESIDENT BOB LAND @ 303-781-4067  or

THE COLORADO AUTOMOBILE RACING CLUB (CARC)  2015

      The CARC is ex.cited to announce a 4 race competitive racing series for the 2015 season.
This series will compete solely at Big Country Speedway in Cheyenne, Wyoming concluding 
with a Championship race on Sept 12.

                                                 * June 13  (CARC & HPM)
                                                     * July 18   (CARC & HPM)
                                                     * Aug 22   (CARC & HPM)
                                                     * Sept 12   (CARC Championship & HPM)


In the SPIRIT of keeping Modified Coupe Racing Alive...NONE of these races conflicts with an aggressive 9 race modified coupe series at CNS.

Further,  the races at BCS are in conjunction with the High Plains Modifieds (HPM)...
racing together...,but with separate points championship and payout.


This is a CARC series (CNS races do not count towards  the CARC Championship).

The 2015 season returns to classic CARC roots:
  -  Basic safety inspection
  -  Rules enforced by the SPIRIT of the rules
   (No post-race inspection)
 
-  Competitive GUARANTEED payout
 
-  Having FUN

                     Numerous individual sponsors have joined together to...
 
              "KEEP THE CARC ALIVE IN TWO ZERO ONE FIVE"

 
Rules for the 2015 season will basically mirror the 2014 CARC rules.
                                           (with NO NEW TIRE RULE)
                        (Radios, HANS device and fire-system  are optional)

The success of the 2015 season will strongly influence the FUTURE of competitive Modified Coupe racing.

                    
DON'T STAY HOME...FANS,OWNERS,DRIVERS
                                            SUPPORT THE CARC
                                    IT'S FUTURE DEPENDS ON IT



REPORT ON  CNS  MODIFIED COUPE MEETING

    CNS held at meeting on January 7, 2015 at Red & Jerry's
to discuss their plans on the CNS MODIFIED COUPES for 2015.
Attendance was good... with a lot of constructive inputs from
management and possible competitors. Jim Nordhougen,
John Witthar, Mark Rush, Greg Weatherwax and Colleen
Lyons-Cubides represented CNS. Key points of discussion were:

1. CNS will be responsible for conducting ALL aspects of CNS
    MODIFIED COUPE racing at CNS. This includes car registration,
car rules, car inspection , rules enforcement, race line-ups and payout.
CARC will have NO active involvement.

2. NO CARC membership is required to compete at CNS. However,
 CNS car number registration and a NASCAR license (driver and crew)
 will be required. (exact costs were unavailable).

3. The CNS Rule book is the final factor for all car rules. Until
 you see it in writing on the CNS website ...IT's NOT OFFICIAL.

4. CNS used the 2015 CARC Car Rules as a starting point for their rules.
They have made some changes already and expect more changes after
discussion at last night's meeting.

5. Some points of note on car rules.
    - CNS expects to keep the "Big Engine option" after 2015.
    - Car weights will be PRE-RACE and minor changes are expected
      - Crate Motor Option - 2000 lbs
      - Spec Motor Option - 2100 lbs
      - Big Motor Option - 2300 lbs (also expect a restrictor plate of some type TBD)
      - All options will have 56% max left-side weight
      - Gear rule will remain the same. Expect active enforcement of this.
      - The shock rule will be rewritten to more clearly address what is allowed
      - The "Tire Rule" will  go back to ONE new tire allowed for each race meet completed.
        John Wood from CARC volunteered to oversee  the tire rule as he did in 2014.

6.  That's the highlights. The CNS website is the ONLY place to get "OFFICIAL INFO"
Car Count is all important to CNS. A "good" car count is essential to keeping the 
current 9 race schedule.
