Continuing the trend of moving its National Championships to a new track each year, the National Auto Sport Association is excited to announce that the 2019 NASA Championships Presented by Toyo Tires will continue as a singular event set to take place at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.
Just two short weeks ago, NASA hosted its largest Championship event in the company’s 28-year history with nearly 500 competitors taking part in the historic event at Circuit of The Americas. The 14th annual NASA Championships will take place at the track where it all began, where NASA held its inaugural championships back in 2006. Mid-Ohio is a track renowned among drivers for its nuance, its ever-changing weather and for Midwestern hospitality.
“I still remember our first Championships event at Mid-Ohio,” said NASA Vice President, Jeremy Croiset. “We took in all the feedback we received at our Championships event this year and ultimately decided to return to the singular Championships event format. The 2019 Championships will be our sixth time at Mid-Ohio, and it’s a track racers love. It has everything from long, fast straightaways to corners with tricky elevation and camber changes, and lots of opportunities for passing. It’s a great facility for our Championships event.”
The 2019 NASA Championships Presented by Toyo Tires is scheduled to take place Sept. 18-22, 2019.
“We look forward to welcoming some of the country’s best amateur racers back to Mid-Ohio next September for the NASA Championships,” said Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course President Craig Rust. “Crowning national champions in over 20 race classes is going to provide a great ending to our 58th season of racing in 2019.”
