Car Numbers: We will be running our events with unique car numbers at
every event. That means that there will only be one car #777.
Whatever car number you were assigned at your first event of
the season will be reserved for you all year, and changing car
numbers or classes mid-season may cause loss of accumulated
Car numbers 0-399 are reserved for annual SCCA members.
Novices must use car numbers 700-999. Anyone who competed
in enough events last year to qualify for season points
is guaranteed their same car number for the current season,
as long as they register for the first event of the year.
Novice Class: We will be running a season-long novice class and championship
series, sponsored by JnJ Associates. Scoring will be based on the PAX/RTP index for all entrants.
Pro Class: NYR will be offering a voluntary Pro class, scored on the
Formula Junior: We currently do *not* offer a Formula Junior class, only
because we do not have an adult volunteer to be the Youth
Steward as required by the SCCA's rules. If someone wants
to step forward and serve as the Youth Steward, we will gladly
start our Formula Junior program up again.
Geezer Class: We will be running a season long class for drivers aged 55 and above. This class will compete from multiple classes via PAX/RTP indexing. The aim of this is for drivers who will not be driving in cars prepared to the full allowances of their respective class. Or a driver not driving for the goal of Nebraska wood. Inclusion in this class is by request, nomination, or protest, and then approval by fellow "competitors" in Gezeer class.
