    Where do we find the 2013 proposed structure of the NBRA pro division classes.

    I do not believe (and I could be wrong, but don't think so) that NBRA has any intent to have any PRO classes other than the affiliation of US Title Series that has been recently announced, and that will provide.

    This affiliation will be good for both parties, by allowing USTS access to lower sanction and insurance fees, and good for NBRA as in will increase the number of dues paying members with no or very little effort and work on their part. WIN WIN for both parties, plus exposure to each others programs for those that might like to run dual categories if they have time and money to do so. This is a marriage that has no real down side for either group, and can only turn out well for both.

    If you want to see the schedule of classes that USTS has run for the last 30+ years, go to their web site for complete information on their schedule of classes, races for 2013, and information about becoming a member, racing or non-racing.

    I didn't look at PRO Rules as no one in SoCal races PRO. http://www.racenbra.net/

    Interesting that the pro classes would not be National Classes to be run by an NBRA affiliate club if so chosen. No national points outside of USTS.

    NBRA clubs will be able to run Pro classes at their race without having to ask for a special permit I do believe. As for points who cares. Dont we race for the thrill and fun of the sport.

    I'm sure they will get things worked out. Was supprized this made no mention of pro classes. I would hope local clubs could run pro classes for national points, it's not that important as you describe but everytime the motor runs I'd like to get something out of it, even if its for basically for nothing on a national level. The USTS races are to far from the West Coast to run until I retire and have the time to travel. Count me in Mike if it could work for your race in August.

    For complete rules and regs check out the NBRA Website.

    There is nothing set in stone in regards to the USTS joing the NBRA. There are proposals with actions taken on them, but there is still one or two pieces of the puzzle being worked on currently. For all intensive purposes, it is a matter of crossing all the T's and dotting all the I's. If you go to the USTS website I believe they have posted more information about the contracts.

    As for the USTS Rules, we have not finalized this portion to incorporate into the organization. This is why they are not posted on the NBRA website. Once we finalize everything , and vote on it can be pubished for the public to view.

    Most everything has now been finalized and Pro classes can be held at local races as special events and they will get National points.. So we would love to have some pro boats let us know that they would like to attend the NBRA Trout Creek Race..

    Hurray Mike,

    It would not make a difference on a national level for a occasional pro racer who supports local events in our obscure region to get national points. Its the right decision! What will make a difference is for those top National points leaders to perhaps travel to a small event like yours seeking a few extra national points. A win win for both NBRA and the small clubs.
