NCRA Nixes Sport Mod Season


PARK CITY, Kan. – National Championship Racing Ass’n President C. Ray Hall has decided to cancel the NCRA Sport Mod Series season.

“We just couldn’t get enough tracks on board to make it worthwhile for the guys to make it worth their time,” Hall said. “That, coupled with the fact that the tracks down there (Oklahoma) pay pretty good for the sport mod division on a weekly basis, I just don’t feel we could get enough of a following to make it worth the while for the tracks, fans and the drivers.”

The balance of the 2014 race season has been nixed yet the tour may not be done for good.

“We’ll take a look at it during the winter and if we can get enough tracks to jump on board then we will have them back for 2015,” Hall said. “I understand this is not a popular decision for those who have supported us yet we have to look at it as from a business standpoint as well.”

Fourteen drivers took part in the season opener back in late April where career leading sport mod winner for NCRA, Travis Johnson, picked up the victory.
