John Adamczyk, Owner and President of 5X Racing, is pleased to announce his, and his companies’ involvement and commitment to the Spec Miata community by means of sponsoring the NASA Florida Spec Miata Challenge for the 2010 racing season. The NASA FL Spec Miata Challenge presented by 5X Racing is a points-based championship open to all competition licensed drivers of Spec Miata racecars that are members of the National Auto Sport Association (NASA) and belong to the Florida Region of the National Auto Sport Association.
“Most NASA Regions across the country have the Spec Miata Challenge format in place, and we wanted to use this successful format, in which we race in ourselves, to make our home NASA Region’s Spec Miata Challenge something special and different than the ordinary NASA Spec Miata Challenge series across the country. Our main goal in sponsoring the 2010 NASA Florida Spec Miata Challenge was to show our commitment, dedication, support, and love of the Spec Miata class by giving back to the Spec Miata community in which our customers and us both enjoy and race. We also felt this was a great outlet to help build brand awareness for the company, as our specialization and main line of business is Spec Miata parts and accessories. We believe that our customers will appreciate us giving back to the sport directly in this manner, as it proves our dedication to the sport all the way down to its deepest, grassroots level.”
John has also recently been appointed the NASA Florida Spec Miata Challenge Series Director, and since John took over this new position, he and his team of assistants have been working closely with the owners and organizers of the NASA Florida Region to help build this series from the ground up. With great cooperation from Steve and Barbara Nix of the NASA Florida Region, John and his team have encouraged NASA Florida to make several big changes to help add an exciting professional feel to the series by offering participants in the Challenge: more focused race groupings with similar sized and speed vehicles; a structured 16 race (8 weekends) championship format; a structured race weekend format which includes two full days of racing, each with a practice, qualifying, and points race; race specific prizes and awards, such as: first time race winner, fastest lap, cool move of the race, good sport of the race, hard charger, etc… Every race will bring a different and exciting award for one lucky competitor. 5X Racing will also provide a contingency prize for the season championship finishers in the form of cash or parts prizes.
“I am extremely happy and excited to have 5X Racing presenting the NASA FL Spec Miata Challenge for the 2010 season! I see this as an opportunity to help build a growing series within the NASA Florida organization and believe that we can provide our customers and participants in the series a fun, awarding, and professional type racing environment with a grassroots level of commitment.”
The 2010 NASA FL Spec Miata Challenge presented by 5X Racing will travel throughout Florida and visit three different World Class racing venues within the year. Starting with the season opener at Homestead/Miami Speedway in January, the NASA FL racing calendar will make stops at Sebring International Raceway and culminate with a season ending race at Palm Beach International Raceway in December. The series will make return visits to each of the three venues throughout the 8 race schedule.
