ORMOND BEACH, FL (Nov. 17, 2006) - The 2006 season for the ISCARS Dash Touring Series was one full of excitement and many memories for both fans and drivers. From a first-time winner at Hickory in April to a first-time champion following Florence in October, the series boasted some of the best regional racing on the short tracks of the southeast.
2007 promises to be just as competitive and fans will have more opportunities to see the Dash Series cars at tracks near them. In addition to a couple of facilities the series has visited in the past two years, there are some new tracks that ISCARS is hoping to secure dates at as well.
"We are waiting on several tracks to confirm dates for hosting the 2007 ISCARS Dash Touring Championship Series," said ISCARS President, Randy Claypoole. "We have put together a 12-race schedule that begins in April and concludes in October."
The schedule this past season ran during the same time period and fans also had the luxury of keeping up on their favorite series drivers on ISCARS Full Throttle hosted by Joe Moore and Tiffany Ricardo. The show is a half-hour video magazine distributed by Raceline Productions out of Virginia.
"ISCARS also plans to kick off season two of ISCARS Full Throttle TV in April," Claypoole commented. "Syndication for the 2007 show has already begun. In addition to America One, Comcast Sports South, Cox TV in New England and Hampton Roads (current affiliates), Cox TV in Orange County, California, and Mid Atlantic Sports Network have picked up broadcast rights.
"We have received fan mail from as far away as Idaho, Mississippi, New York, Arizona, Alabama, and Tampa, Florida and many places in between," he concluded.
ISCARS also received some national attention in October from major motorsports media outlets because of its affiliations with NASCAR Nextel Cup Series racing. 2006 Champion, Eric Wilson, is the raceday jackman for the No. 32 Tide Chevrolet driven by Travis Kvapil. Also, part-time ISCARS driver Justin Hobgood is the spotter for the No. 30 Lumber Liquidators Toyota driven by Todd Bodine in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, almost on the verge of clinching their first championship.
"Last year was explosive for our series in terms of the coverage it received," said Public Relations Coordinator Tony Stevens. "We've got some things we're working on in 2007 from the PR standpoint. It's been our goal to return the series to the prominence it once held and I believe we can indeed do that."
ISCARS, formerly known as the NASCAR Goody's Dash Series in recent memory, is the only sanctioning body of its kind in American motorsports. The series fields sport compact cars such as Pontiac Sunfires, Mercury Cougars, Toyota Celicas and more on short tracks throughout the southeast. The same cars and drivers competing in the series now have also competed at Daytona International Speedway, Lowe's Motor Speedway, and Bristol Motor Speedway.
