2016-2017 Announcement Updates

posted Oct 27, 2016, 5:11 AM by Paul Shoemaker
There's lots of things happening and we have several things to announce this week!  KY STLP Fall Regional events will begin next week on November 3rd with our first on-the-road visit to Murray State University.  We are looking forward to meeting our student racers on the west side of the state and seeing all the cool things the students bring to the regional event.  We will be attending all of the KY STLP Fall Regional events from November 3rd through December 12th.  If you have the opprotunity, please come out and attend the event and see what our KY students can do with some technology and a lot of imagination!  We will have the Racing to the Future™ drag strip on display and operational, with our new timing and race management system, so come by the display and get a peek at what the state event will look like for 2017! 

Over the next three weeks, we will be releasing the new rulebook, rubric, judging procedures, race procedures for state championships in KY (or for competition events in other locations) and a car guide for what cars are allowed for competitions.  There are a couple of new manufacturers with new car designs on the market, so we will review those and determine if they can be new options for our student racers.  We will send out a notification on the KY-STLP ListServ and on this site when the new rulebook, rubric and other new information is available.  This should be ready around the second week of November, so be watching for it.

We would also like to welcome Scale Auto (BSRT) as a new sponsor for Racing to the Future™.  A link to their site is now posted on the landing page, that will take you to their web store.  They are a great source for custom performance parts and cars.

We always look forward to the next new season of racing competition, but we think this year will be even more exciting and we will all see some really cool and innovative ideas from our student racers in the quest to go faster.

-The Racing to the Future™ Team
