During the offseason months, Mike Emhof and Mike VanDusen, owner of the CRSA series for the past five years, worked closely to finalize the details of the acquisition with a number of common goals to protect the integrity and future of the series. From race dates, to racing operations, competitors and fans can expect to see business as usual, with the exception of CRSA adopting the IMCA sanction.
“I’m glad that the series is going to continue under the same RACESAVER® format,” said VanDusen.
VanDusen’s comment reflects the premise of the series to offer stable and enforceable rules, consistent rules application, and fair purse distribution.
“Mike and his wife Debbie have done a fantastic job operating the CRSA series over the past five years and we share the goal of providing an affordable platform in a racing series that maintains a level playing field,” commented Mike Emhof.
VanDusen will remain involved with the series in a technical supporting role at the track and as a consultant during the 2016 season.
Along with the acquisition announcement, MEM announced that Greg Hixson will be the Director of Race Operations for the RACESAVER® CRSA Sprints. Hixson has worked under the MEM umbrella in roles with the CNYMS Mini Sprints, then with PST. Hixson has also been the race director at Black Rock Speedway and Canandaigua Motorsports Park.
“Greg has worked with me many, many years and is well respected within the racing community. He’ll have the full support of the MEM organization behind him with the RACESAVER® CRSA Sprints,” expressed Emhof.
A RACESAVER® CRSA Sprints 2016 schedule will be forthcoming in the next few weeks.
