Great American Shortcourse (GAS) partners with USAC
(March 31, 2021) In keeping with their mission to prioritize driver safety and development, the Great American Shortcourse series (GAS) is excited to announce a partnership with the United States Auto Club (USAC). GAS will be utilizing USAC’s existing programs for all driver licensing, registration and ticketing beginning with the upcoming inaugural event in Victorville on April 10-11.
“We have worked with USAC for a decade to provide safe and competitive racing in the Ultra4 Series and now we look forward to utilizing their industry expertise in the shortcourse arena as well.” said Dave Cole, CEO of Ultra4 Racing and GAS co-founder.
The United States Auto Club (USAC) is the sanctioning body behind some of the largest racing organizations in the country. Drivers will be provided with USAC supplemental insurance through the USAC annual licensing program. Through this program, a GAS driver may purchase a license for the complete GAS season, a single GAS event, or they can choose the option that encompasses the Midwest race season as well.
“We know that we have many drivers who plan to spend the summer with the Midwest series. When USAC offered the possibility of allowing drivers to pay one license fee to cover insurance at both series, we knew that would be a win for our teams,” stated GAS co-founder and series director Lee Perfect. “We’re also excited to be able to offer supplemental insurance for crew members at a very low cost as we know they play an integral part in any successful race team.”
Great American Shortcourse: GAS is a strategic path forward with the goal to not merely keep short course racing alive, but to successfully grow to new heights. The GAS team is comprised of many who have experience launching a short course series. GAS plans to take a fresh look at short course racing in the West and learn from each other to build something sustainable, safe, and fun for everyone from the grassroots racers to the pros.
