    AHRMA's Board of Trustees approved an agreement to run a joint race venue at North Florida Motorsports Park. The details are not know exactly but it will be something like this:

    Day One: Wednesday- track practice for all participants
    Day Two: WERA run race day with AHRMA participants invited
    Day Three: AHRMA run race day with WERA participants invited

    And where are those doubters now? Listen up racers! This is going to be a big deal with big grids and big noise and big buddys having a big time good competing with each other

    Hey Tim, it's actually a longer drive for me than Roebling or Deland, but I don't mind. This is gonna be a great thing. Looking back, when I have run Deland it has been consistently my worst finish of the year, and I think it's mostly because I refuse to crash in a pothole 3 days before Daytona.

    So the next battle is who gets gridded and where?
    I assume that AHRMA will grid according to its member's finish the previous season and by who pre-registers. So that leaves WERA members to be gridded as they sign up at the track. Now there's an automatic excuse for you: ' Aw shucks, man- I was gridded on the 12th row and got stuck behind some ole guys going into turn one'. Of course on the other hand, you can pass 36 bikes before lap one is over. But, Hey!, at least you're on the grid so there shouldn't be any belly aching.
    And how does WERA grid everyone?

    I believe it will be pretty much the same way.

    big grids !?

    Because of the joint effort, some of these grids could get really big. For example, the WERA 250 GP race could include its regular WERA riders, plus AHRMA 250 GP, plus AHRMA 200 GP. Likewise, AHRMA's Formula Vintage, usually a large class anyway, could draw entries from a number of WERA classes. ( Haven't read up on this, but I think many V3, V4 and F500 bikes could bump into that one)
    This could be really good for the sport- much better than the trend of one or two row grids that has hit both organizations this past summer. If this takes off and does well, maybe NFMP will be able to justify a few grandstands and other spectator-friendly additions.

    that would be sweet.. F500 should be really fun with both together.

    This is all speculation. There is only a rumor that WERA and AHRMA will have a joint meet. No one has actually said its a done deal BUT silence says a lot......wish I had a real Watergate type 'Deep Throat' to actually confirm this event. Can anyone ask Mark Mitchell or David Lamberth to get a confirmation? But assuming this is true, this will probably be fourth to the GNF Vintage races, Daytona and Mid-Ohio. Sorry if I jumped the gun.........anyone who can get some CONCRETE info.......sign in here and let us know. However, I'm confident this will come to fruition but nothing official has happened yet
