The National Auto Sport Association (NASA) is excited to announce that the organization’s premier Championship events, the Western and Eastern States Championships, will return to a single event format for the 2018 NASA Championships presented by Toyo Tires. This event is scheduled to take place at the world famous Circuit of the Americas facility in Austin, Texas on September 13-16, 2018. The Circuit of the Americas will host the 2018 United States Formula 1 Grand Prix just one month after the best NASA competitors from across the nation enjoy four days of intense competition at a track regarded by many as one of the most challenging in the country.
“We’re thrilled to be taking the NASA Championships to Circuit of the Americas in 2018” said Jeremy Croiset, NASA Director of Business Development. “We’re giving our competitors the opportunity to compete on the same track, pit in the same garages, and fight for their chance to win a NASA Championship at the same facility that will host the biggest racing stars in the world from the Formula 1 championship just one month later. It just doesn’t get much cooler than that!”
“We’re proud to continue our commitment as the presenting sponsor of the NASA Championships,” said Marc Sanzenbacher, Sr. Manager Motorsports, Toyo Tires USA. “It is an opportunity for us to support grassroots racing, showcase our race-winning Proxes tires, and gather real-world data for our product development team. The return to a single event format in 2018 will bring the best amateur racers together for what is sure to be an exciting weekend of racing”
“We look forward to hosting NASA’s premier Championship event at our world class facility in 2018” said Eric Paradis, Vice President of Business Development, Circuit of the Americas. “The visit to our facility is one no one ever forgets and we expect that everyone will enjoy a truly memorable experience during the event that will last a lifetime”.
