The National Auto Sport Association (NASA) announced a new Spec Miata competition at the 2018 NASA Championship at Circuit of the Americas that will award what they say is the largest purse in amateur racing history. The inaugural Toyo Tires Classic will take place during the NASA Championships presented by Toyo Tires on Sept. 13-16, 2018.
This unique race will award the overall winner at the event with a cash payout of up to $80,000. More than $131,000 in cash awards will be made available to Spec Miata racers taking part in the competition with two different random cash awards totaling $5,000. A hard charger award will bring a $10,000 payday, while many more unique incentives will be announced. Qualifying requirements to enter the Toyo Tires Classic will be very straight forward and follow the usual NASA Championship qualification format.
