Chris,Chris Robertson said:David you said that Mazda and Honda give money for racing, I'm guessing that is in the form of parts. How does that work? What do you need to qualify? What other car makers do that?
Gunnar you need to spend the money first and then if (the big if) you win the Nationals you get your money back. Also the parts manager I am dealing with is a SERCA member and someone I've known for a couple of years. In order to get these deals you need to network and make contacts that may take long term developement.Gunnar said:Ok, how do I get in touch with these people? I want money!!!

I really should have kept in touch with him, but he stopped showing up right after they offered the contingency program. Over the last three years, I had 7 1st's and 9 2nds. And if they included Julie, I think she has like 30 1st's over the last 3 years.vwong said:Luckily for me, I signed up for the contingency program that Progress had back in 2000 for the STS class (I believe David and couple other people signed up too). The program was that you have to place either 1st or 2nd to get contingency money from them. I didn't get anything from them in 2000, but since one of the owner at Progress and I became pretty good friends, the contingency money is still available for me. In 2001 and 2002, I think I had close to $2000 from them (some was cash and some I got parts for the cars such as the custom rear sway bar in my Prelude).
