SECA Adds Crate Sportsman To 2015 Lineup

After thorough consideration and planning, (SECA) South Eastern Crate Association is pleased to announce the launch of a 2nd division for 2015. Crate Sportsman will be added under the SECA umbrella of sanctioned divisions.

Crate Sportsman is a weekly division made up of stock bodied cars, utilizing only the GM 602 crate motor (Part #88958602). One set of unified rules will be utilized across the sanctioned tracks opting to allow their drivers to race for the 2015 SECA Crate Sportsman Championship.

In the past, the rules for crate sportsman have been extremely close across each of these tracks. With just a few minor alterations, we are confident that we have a great rules package that will allow all crate sportsman drivers to compete, without inquiring any additional cost(s).

One of the key rule changes will be the 100lb weight break for any driver that is competing with an engine that has factory GM seals, or is sealed by a SECA certified builder with SECA seals.

“The opportunity to unify local tracks with another division is a blessing in itself. We have stated from the beginning that our goal has been to unify the area. The addition of the Crate Sportsman is another example of our commitment to improving the sport by creating an environment that allows neighboring tracks to work together. It also gives us an opportunity to reach more drivers, engine builders, and potential partners", explained SECA's Jason Atkins.

SECA officials plan to meet with drivers, tracks, and engine builders in the coming weeks to introduce to the SECA Crate Sportsman program and field any questions those teams may have heading into the 2015 racing season.

“We have been looking into this for two years now. After lengthy discussion with several tracks and teams, we made the decision to move forward with adding Crate Sportsman. I have always been a fan of the division and I think that the potential is unlimited with the class. I know that all tracks do not currently run this division, but there isn’t anyone that can deny its growth over the past few years", stated SECA's Timmy Mcabee.
