The National Auto Sport Association (NASA) is excited to announce that the organizationâ€™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 â€ªon September 13-16, 2018â€¬. 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. â€¬
â€œWeâ€™re thrilled to be taking the NASA Championships to Circuit of the Americas in 2018â€ said Jeremy Croiset, NASA Director of Business Development. â€œWeâ€™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 doesnâ€™t get much cooler than that!â€
â€œWeâ€™re proud to continue our commitment as the presenting sponsor of the NASA Championships,â€ said Marc Sanzenbacher, Sr. Manager Motorsports, Toyo Tires USA. â€œIt 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 racingâ€
â€œWe look forward to hosting NASAâ€™s premier Championship event at our world class facility in 2018â€ said Eric Paradis, Vice President of Business Development, Circuit of the Americas. â€œThe 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 lifetimeâ€.
