NORA Announces the 2011 Lighthouse Lanes SBS Racing Series Schedule and Kickoff Party Chicken BBQ

The Northeast Organized Racing Association (NORA) has released their tentative schedule for the 2011 racing season, along with some other exciting news.

Lighthouse Lanes, on Jim Shampine Drive in Oswego, NY, has been a proud sponsor of the NORA SBS Series Race of Champions event for the past few years.  For 2011, NORA is proud to welcome Lighthouse Lanes as a series sponsor.

The season started Feb. 12 with a Kickoff Party and Chicken Barbeque at Lighthouse Lanes.

Thunder Alley Speedpark in Evans Mills, NY will host the first series race on April 30th.  This longer distance event for the SBS drivers will be the first of 5 scheduled events at Evans Mills for 2011.  Also, there is a possibility of an exciting mid-week event being added in mid-August.  Keep up to date with the latest news at www.norasbs.blogspot.com or find us on facebook @norasbsracing.

A Sponsorship Seminar will take place on Sunday February 27th from 11am-1pm, presented by Oswego Speedway announcers Roy Sova and Joe Marotta.  This event is open to anyone interested in hearing Roy and Joe share their thoughts on sponsorship with their extensive marketing and sales background.  The cost is only $10 and will be held at Lighthouse Lanes in Oswego.

In other exciting news, our proposed “Commitment Program” for 2011 is shaping up quite well.  Car owners who sign up will be rewarded for attendance at NORA races with a higher purse structure, with a goal of increasing payouts by 50% or more.  Commitment Program proposals will be available by the February 27th Sponsorship Seminar.  Race teams also have an opportunity to earn more money each race night at Thunder Alley Speedpark by participating in the exciting “Open Wheel” class that pays at least $100 to start and $500 to win.  Those who attended the season finale in 2010 at Evans Mills saw the SBS cars take on the DIRT Mods and IMCA cars in an exciting race that had the fans on their feet.

We are looking forward to an exciting 2011 season thanks to the support of our race teams, sponsors, and fans.

NORA’s 2011 tentative schedule boasts a 5-race stint at Thunder Alley Speedpark in Evans Mills. 50-lap season opener kicks things off on Saturday, April 30. 25-lap events are currently set for May 21, June 25, August 13 and September 10. The August 13 date is extra tentative – pending Oswego Speedway’s racing weather prior to that date. Oswego has set aside the mid-August Saturday as a rain date back-up date in case one Mother Nature washes away of its scheduled races. The season will concludes with an end of the year party with a date yet to be slated.
