(HPD) will offer over $50,000 in cash awards to HPD Honda Challenge competitors at the 5th annual NASA Championship event at Miller Motorsports Park on September 16th-19th, 2010.

The award program will apply to all Honda Challenge classes (H1, H2, H3, H4, H5) at the NASA National Championship event. The program will award 1st place with $2000, 2nd place with $1500 and 3rd place with $1000 cash, if there are 10 or more cars in a class.

Richmond, CA - The National Auto Sport Association (NASA) is pleased to announce that Honda Performance Development (HPD) has been named Title Sponsor of NASA's Honda Challenge series. The partnership will introduce NASA members to the HPD brand and the many incentives that come along with being a member of the Honda Racing Line, HPD’s racer-support program.

“We are thrilled that HPD has come on board as the title sponsor of the Honda Challenge series,” said Jeremy Croiset, NASA Sponsorship Manager. “The Honda Racing Line program has been a valued asset for any Honda Challenge competitor. The easy and super-quick shipping of any Honda part ordered, and the recently added ServiceExpress function, which is an internet-based library where HPD Honda Racing Line members can see exploded-view diagrams, are both exceptionally helpful to any Honda or Acura racer. We are looking forward to the exciting additions this new sponsorship program will bring to the Honda Challenge series in NASA.
 
“We are excited about the title sponsorship of NASA’s Honda Challenge series” said Marc Sours, HPD Production Division Manager. “NASA has proven to have a successful and growing program and this entitlement should provide us a wonderful opportunity to reach out to those racers with an affinity for the Honda brand and help them in their racing endeavors. The Honda Racing Line program offers a number of benefits which any Honda/Acura racer can take free advantage of, and we look forward to working with NASA to further develop the program.”

Notice for NASA Racers with Impact Racing Products

Published on May 06, 2010 13:44

The national office received the following from Impact Racing Products:

PASS TECH INSPECTION!! GET YOUR DATE OF MANUFACTURE FORMS - CALL IMPACT TODAY.
Attention Racers:

In regards to our current situation with SFI, we understand that some racers may have trouble passing tech inspections with Impact Racing safety equipment. To remedy this inconvenience, Impact Racing can provide you with a Date of Manufacture Verification form for products purchased in 2009 and 2010 only. If you call the Impact Racing office at 317-852-3067 you can obtain this form from any one of our sales associates. You will have to provide a proof of purchase. Please check with your sanctioning body to see if this form will allow you to pass tech and race at your event. Any racers with products purchased prior to 2009 can call Impact to order new product at a discounted rate.

Effective immediately, NASA is requiring those drivers that own Impact Racing suits to bring their purchase receipt as well as the letter from Impact Racing to the track events and present them to the local inspector. “We hate to see any additional hassle for our drivers, but we realized that in order to get a letter from Impact, you will need to have a receipt anyway. Therefore, we feel that asking them to bring the receipt and the letter is not too much to ask,” commented Executive Director, Jerry Kunzman.

More information regarding the SFI decertification of Impact products can be found elsewhere on this page.


SFI Certification Requirements

Published on April 24, 2010 13:07

There has been a recent SFI decertification of some of Impact Racing’s safety gear. While the NASA management sympathizes with any driver that is affected, we need to remind those drivers that we cannot allow the use of safety equipment not meeting our current listed rules found in the Club Codes and Regulations. Those drivers owning Impact Safety equipment should read the other press releases pertaining to this subject, found on this web page. Those concerned about the possibility of owning decertified equipment should contact Impact Racing immediately.

SFI update on Impact Racing decertification

Published on April 22, 2010 12:45

SFI has issued the following press release. Please review this carefully:
  1. Impact Racing has withdrawn its appeal of the decertifications of its products bearing SFI 3.2A, 3.3, 16.1, and 16.5 specifications manufactured in the years 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008. The decertifications of these products are now permanent.

  2. The decertifications are based upon a number of the affected products being non- compliant with SFI specifications concerning labeling and construction. In addition to the presence of non-compliant SFI tags and the absence of DOMs on products, 3.2A/5 suits made prior to 2009 have been constructed with non-compliant materials that, in SFI’s judgment, pose a safety risk to users of these suits.

  3. Impact Racing is permitted to maintain the certification for products bearing SFI 3.2A, 3.3, 16.1, and 16.5 specifications manufactured in 2009 and 2010. SFI’s investigation of the labeling and construction of these products is ongoing. Impact’s participation in the SFI specification programs ends June 22, 2010.

  4. Any Impact product with SFI specifications 3.2A, 3.3, 16.1, and 16.5 without a date of manufacture (DOM) is deemed to be a decertified product unless the manufacturer has provided the product user with proof that it was manufactured in 2009 or 2010. This proof must be presented to track officials upon request. Impact believes that its products made in 2009 and 2010 have the DOMs affixed to products to the extent mandated by SFI specifications.
