NCR SCCA License Plate
 
We are excited to announce the development of a new NCR SCCA license plate that will be available for vehicles registered in the state of North Carolina! Show your pride as an NCR SCCA member and spread awareness of our sport!
 
Once we achieve the needed level of commitment (300 plates), the plate will be a standard issue plate with our NCR SCCA logo on the left half of the plate followed by four digits.  Personalized plates are available for an additional fee to DMV, but you are limited to four characters as shown. 
 
COST: $10 annually (per plate/vehicle), in addition to your usual license plate fees. The initial fee of $10 will be due upon fulfilling our minimum order along with a simple application.
 
HOW DO I GET ONE?: If you are interested in one or more NCR SCCA license plates for your vehicle(s) please contact Morgan Mehler at morgan@mehlerlawfirm.com with the following information:
1)  Full name (who the vehicle is registered to)
2)  Year, Make, Model of vehicle (for each vehicle)
 
**Remember, you can get a plate for each vehicle that is registered and insured in NC! We already have interest from several people for multiple plates/vehicles!
 
TIMING: Our goal is to close the interest list by the end of this year so we can start the paperwork with the state and receive our plates as soon as possible in 2016. Please respond to Morgan Mehler if you’re interested ASAP!
 
Please spread the word to anyone who may have an interest in an NCR SCCA plate by forwarding this email, Facebook, word of mouth etc. 

Highlights of the 52nd SCCA Runoffs

Anna Crissman named SCCA’s 
Worker of the Year
in Timing & Scoring

Congratulations to NCR’s Chief of Timing and Scoring, Anna Crissman, a 15-year member of the Club come January, for her well-deserved recognition in the specialty she does so well. We knew she was good; now everybody else does too!

And we have more of the stories of personal sacrifice and outstanding achievement, even in the face of adversity, that make the SCCA Runoffs famous…

  • Our 2012 National Driver of the Year, CJ Moses, was literally all set to pull out for Daytona when a family emergency arose. He would not be able to go. So he transferred his entry to Marty Grand, his crew chief and friend from Washington DC Region. Marty qualified the car in 9th and finished 6th. Great job, guys!
  • Since 1976 our 2014 Lifetime Achievement winner, Dan Robson, has attended almost every Runoffs as either a competitor (there were about 28 of those years) or as a crew member. This year he was Crew Chief for our own Doug Piner in P2 and for Chad Bacon of Eastern Tennessee Region who took 2nd in GT3, after a great drive from 4th. Dan was ably assisted by NCR members Sam Fouse and Sam Neave, as well as others.  Making do was the order of the day when they replaced the broken carbon-fiber wing on Doug’s car with one made of $40 worth of materials from Home Depot!
  • NCR’s Mike Rossini was the engine builder for 14 (!) Spec Miata drivers in the historic SM race under the lights, including the race winner and now National Champion, Jonathan Goring. Mike actually had enough points to qualify himself, and he was planning to race, but a technicality got his entry rejected at the last minute, when it was too late to do anything about it. Too bad the SCCA national office couldn’t have let him know sooner! Sorry to hear that, Mike! Hope you can run next year and congratulations on providing the race-winning engine.
  • Randall Kinsland, who was Conference Champion in GT2 of the Southeast Majors Tour for the second year in a row, was the class of the GT2 field in his Corvette, until it developed overheating problems. After passing everyone else in practice, he qualified 8th in his only successful attempt, but could not start the race. The good news is that his engine has been rebuilt and he plans on attending the ARRC at Road Atlanta. Better luck there and next year at the Runoffs, Randy!

A huge thanks goes to Mazda, for paying for the TV broadcast, and for covering the cost of the lights so the Spec Miata race could be held at night, and also for the fireworks afterward!
