  RZ Racing and #21 Jason White (me) 8) , have secured  marketing partners to run  six races of the 2008 NCATS season. Negotiations are on going to run the full schedule but nothing secured yet. The team will have a home base in Peterborough, Ontario and be working very close with Ams Engines  and Mccoll Racing Enterprises.

  As for other western teams running NCATS in 2008, I know for sure Trevor Seibert is running all the road courses (most likely will be contending for the win in all of them). Jim White will run at least the western races  (Vernon and Edmonton) and maybe an eastern swing for a couple races like last year. I have spoke with 4 or 5 other teams that are doing the updates to there cars and plan on running at least Vernon and Edmonton.  So we will still have some western blood in the show.  Having said that our team hasn't felt the old east -west rivalry anymore since Nascar took over.....everyone is treated equally and tech is TOUGH but very fair. This is helping equal out the field a bit and making the racing extremely close.

The merger  With ARCAwest and the former Newalta series is awesome, it brings a great stable environment to Late model racing in western  Canada, which is much needed. I cant wait to see how guys like Trevor Emond and Craig Ball do after running consistently with Arca for a while.

Anyway thats what I think I know!!!!  :D This is by no means a press release, it is only some racing chat, RZ Racing will have a former press release (mission statement) soon.  The new website should be done by the end of February.....talk to ya later       #21  Jason White

If anyone has a problem with  the contents of the above mentioned statements, please forward them to my lawyer (Doey Cheatem and Howe)!!!!  LOL

Awesome news to hear from you Jason, really look forward to seeing you at as many events here in the Eastern end of Canada.  As for sleepy, I'm sorry to hear you feel so negative about the France family considering the support the entire series of drivers and teams in the NCATS series deserves from us fans.  And honestly after the quality of racing after the events last year they can only get better.  Not to say they weren't quality events in the past under the CASCAR banner, far from it actually but you could really see some serious racing/competition in the series among more teams then in the past.  The fans were starting to come back to watching the events, I'd like to see the attendance results but nothing seen yet.  But I am more then confident that attendance was up a great percentage compared to previous years.

it is sad to say but imho for any western Canadian team to race in nascar a relocation to Ontario will likely be a must if one is to run the whole series. i fear nascar on a different level in Canada, there is only a finite amount of sponsor dollars in the country and they likely will take the lions share the second problem is a lack of commitment to grass roots racing. i have noticed that the only nascar series not to have a schedule up yet is the Canadian tire one which mystifies me a little.

  Dont be concerned about the schedule hill,  just do a little track web site surfing and you can pretty much figure the schedule. We have heard rumours of a thirteenth race and apparently this just came about in january, so im sure that is what is holding it up, and probably the edmonton race as well, they always hold things up!! This site in the last couple of months is a prime example why not to put out tentative scheduling and "car counts". Nascar has been doing this for a long time and they are very good at it.
  As for the grass roots part.....sun valley went to the Nascar WHELEN series with there street stocks and it seemed to work out pretty good...i know there are some other tracks that are on the same programs, the only down fall i can see was too many races for them (18).  Thats alot for grass roots racers. Ask Sun valleys track champion(les heinz) if he enjoyed his free trip to vegas for the awards banquet and his free driving suit??  JW

What do you mean by that. All people have to do is say this is a tentative schedule or this is a rough car count. The reason the other series had problems they came out and said this is the car counts and this is the schedule. They never said this is a rough draft of what we think the schedule would be.

We have seen Schedule in the past that had TBA on them and we had no problems with them.

I take offence to that remark as this site has provided a lot of good stuff and a couple of exclusives.

  This site in the last couple of months is a prime example why not to put out tentative scheduling and "car counts".

Dont take offence evan,  its just been a damned if they do damned if they dont scenario on this board, a few people seem to attack the different series and people weather they put out a schedule or not.  This is a great board and it is needed for us to have points of view.  I didnt mean to offend your hard work.  Like i said earlier,  go to the respective track web sites and you can pretty much figure it out.   boy i cant wait for the first race......wherever it may be.   jw

first race sat arca cant wait. jw and evan my only point was that nascar has had ever other sched out for a long time, but not the Canadian one,it was just an observation i could find other thing to bash the france family about. ps jw i honestly do not believe the whelan series benefit grassroot races i do believe it is a help to the track owners and promoters. if i was young again i think that i would tackle the arca west series and not the ncts just due to logistics. good luck getting the needed help for the last seven races and bolt on some 8" tires and come play at acms once or twice if you can you would be more than welcomed. i am working the points matrix to benefit part time drives a little more in 08 for the Siemens west.

You have to remember there are still some CASCAR guys in the NCATS deal and that might explain why no schedule or any news at all.

Great news for you Jason!

As for the schedule I will again say this...it is not the fault of NCATS. The tracks are the ones that make up their minds as to what dates the race will be run on. So please stop blaming the great folks at NASCAR or the Series. The people at NCATS can't do up a schedule with no track to race on.  ::)

Some tracks have done their dates others haven't. NASCAR likes to send out a full schedule as did CASCAR. I am sure NASCAR likes to have ALL their t's crossed and i's dotted. True CASCAR did send out a
tentative schedule before and people whined about that too.

Again great news Jason...keep the good news coming!

racewoman i take it you have talked to all the track involved so that such a statement could be made right? the lack of a sched.while every other nascar series has one points to nascar not the tracks and the way that business is being done. ps great folks at nascar are there to make money nothing else.

Here why don't you go and do your own ground work. I have ask questions and found answers out for myself. I am not afraid to ask questions. So why don't you go a track owner yourself? I did and I got answers. Go and ask a series owner some questions they don't bite.

No track to race on = no money

have done my ground work for the last three years. have dealt with drivers,tracks and sanction bodies. i just dont honestly believe that because nascar is in canada all will be fine. the local racers imho are the only thing that makes racing in canada survive not the 800lb gorilla from the states.

For the record....NCATS will release the sked once all contracts are received from the tracks. End of story.
