Nasa American Iron State of the Union, March 2017

Welcome to the 2017 season!

By now some of the sunny and warm regions, Florida and California, have already had their first races. Most of us are still throwing logs in the fireplace. So its that time of year again to pull the tarps off the race car and get prepping.

Contingency programs are back and for the most part appear to be the same. Toyo will again be supporting the pony cars for both regional and national level contingency. Ford Racing Performance Parts has again resigned to support late model mustang racers. The Hawk program has not yet been released. For more contingency offers and info visit: https://www.nasaproracing.com/contingencies

The 2017 rule packages are out. PLEASE READ THEM! Rules can be found here: https://www.nasaproracing.com/rules

Heres the changes:

Spec iron

Open tune allowed:
1. ECU tuning is permitted

Dyno paperwork enforcement:
1. All SI participants must have a dynamometer certification report(s) prior to the start of the race or make arrangements to have a dyno test performed immediately after the race. Certification reports can be valid for an entire season provided that NO PERFORMANCE MODIFICATIONS are performed to the car. If more than one tune/setup is used each will require its own dynamometer certification report. Dyno test must be performed prior to first race entered for the season and after the last race entered from the previous season. Any SI competitor wishing to race without a Dyno Certification will be required to compete in American Iron Extreme (AIX).

The dynamometer certification report will consist of TWO PARTS: a completed SI DYNO SPEC SHEET and DYNO READOUT GRAPHS. These forms must be kept with the vehicle's logbook and be ready to present to any official. The SI Dyno Spec Sheet includes instructions for performing the official dynamometer inspection, which must be followed in order for the dyno report to be VALID. The Dyno Spec Sheet is available in the Appendix of these rules. Any SI competitor without a VALID DYNO CERTIFICATION is subject to DISQUALIFICATION or be required to compete in American Iron Extreme (AIX).

Dyno runs must start below peak torque and end after max hp:
1. Three consecutive runs shall be made under full power. The RPM range shall be consistent for all three runs. Starting RPM shall be clearly below peak torque and no higher than 2500. Ending RPM shall be clearly beyond max horsepower.

Restrictors:
1. The only devices permitted to restrict engine power are the following: Electronic tuning, restrictor plates or throttle stops. Any other restrictor must be approved per section 8.7 non conforming equipment. All restriction devices must be documented on the dynamometer specification sheet as to their software file name, size, shape and/or settings. Taping up air boxes or air filters is not permitted.

Any restriction device placed in the air intake system (or method to restrict power) must be clearly identified as such and marked to indicate its dimensions. The Dyno Spec Sheet is available on the AI website and in the Appendix of the rules. Any AI competitor without a VALID DYNO CERTIFICATION is subject to DISQUALIFICATION or be required to compete in American Iron Extreme (AIX).

Rule change requests (RCR) - We take change requests all year. The procedure can be found on the forums.

2017 State of Great Lakes Region AI/AIX/SI Series

Seeing some growth in AIX. Drivers like the unlimited nature and want to have big tires, big horse power and pass everyone on the straights. There really isn’t much in class racing going on in AIX, but these drivers aren’t looking for tough competition. They also aren’t getting any contingency. Audrey Zavodsky has just transitioned her 2015 Mustang from AI to AIX for 2017. She’s going with 315 Hoosiers and opening up the engine. Last year Elliott Fisher did the same thing. I tried to pick up interest in our NCM evens by having a special trophy – a bourbon barrel. It created a little bit of a buzz, but didn’t help the attendance as much as I hoped for. This year, based on feedback from the drives, I will be giving out T-Shirts. So, if you make it to one of our events stop by and get your T-Shirt. Great interest on Facebook about the race reports in Speed News! Our session was 22 races long last year! We had enough starters in AI to give out the Toyo Regional Championship awards. For 2017 we have 23 races! Some weekends we have 3 races.

2017 NE/MA/GL Regional Shootout

June 3-4 at Pitt Race with Great Lakes Region
July 22-23 at Dominion Raceway with Mid Atlantic Region
Sept 23-24 at Watkins Glen with Northeast Region

All are welcome, signup with each region. Special trophies, BBQ's and maybe some cold hard cash, look for formal info on the forums soon.

2017 Nationals. This year the West coast nationals will be held at Thunderhill Raceway October 5-8th while the East coast nationals will be held at Sebring October 19-22nd. For more info please visit: http://nasachampionships.com/
