PCTCC: Pacific Coast Touring To run National Series

Due to the popularity of NASA's Pacific Coast Touring Cars class the
series is going national.  The series, sponsored by Wine Country
Motorsport will have two separate schedules next year. Teams not wishing
to travel nationwide can still run the existing Pacific Coast and Atlantic
Coast Touring Car Championship with no changes.  However, the big
sponsorship money will be from the newly created United States Touring Car
Championship.  In addition to Hoosier, K&N, Konig, and Wheels America many
new sponsors will be on board for this new series. These new sponsorships
will allow the teams which normally only compete on a local level the
opportunity to gain national exposure and be able to race on some of
America's greatest race tracks.

"In a meeting with some of the current participants, all were very e***d
to be part of this great series.  In addition to the big pack of Hondas
and Acuras, a few other teams are building other cars such as BMW 3
series, Audi A4, Subaru Impreza, Dodge Neon, VW Jetta VR6 and even a
Mercedes C Class.  It should be very exciting. " stated Ali Arsham of
NASA.

The schedule is taking shape but the exact dates are not confirmed at this
time.  The NASA office will relase those dates as soon as their schedule
is confirmed with participating regions.
