F.A.S.T. Series 2010 Rule Bulletin

From FAST Public Relations

MAUMEE, OH (4-27-10) – The FAST organization would like to remind teams to review the 2010 rule sheets that were distributed to all teams last weekend. Rule #7 (placement of FAST decals) will be enforced starting with the next FAST event. All teams have had sufficient time to apply the FAST series decals in the locations specified in Rule #7. Teams not displaying the FAST decals will not receive points toward the series championship beginning this weekend. If you plan on running for the FAST Championship and did not receive your decal pack, please contact the FAST organization at 419-266-2897. Three sets of FAST decals were distributed to each team in the decal/rule packs.

Decals are paid for directly from the point fund and in an effort to cut costs that will deplete that point fund, teams will be charged a minimal fee for extra sets of decals to cover the costs. “It isn’t fair to all of the teams when only a portion of drivers may burn through multiple sets of decals throughout the season due to crashes, new paint schemes, or changing rides,” states Bryan Autullo of FAST. “It may seem trivial to charge teams for extra sets of decals, but our organization does not sell memberships nor do we charge the track any sanctioning fees, so all costs of operation come directly from the point fund. Our goal is to hand out more money to the race teams, not burn up the point fund with operational costs for the series. That would defeat our entire purpose and that’s why you won’t see us running around in fancy uniforms driving golf carts. All of the money we collect goes back into the point fund to distribute to the race teams.”

“We discussed this decal rule at great length,” said Chris Kettman of the FAST organization. “We feel that it is important that the teams running for our point fund support the sponsors who make this all possible and support the series by putting the F.A.S.T. decals on their race cars. When we hand out over $60,000 in cash and prizes, we don’t feel this is too much to ask of the teams involved. This season we will enforce the rule that teams not running the Kistler Racing Products/F.A.S.T. Series decal will not receive points for that event. We also hope that all of the teams will support our F.A.S.T. cash and contingency sponsors by placing their decals on the cars to show their appreciation for all of the cash and prizes we’ll be handing out in 2010.”

Additional sets of F.A.S.T. decals may be purchased for $5.00 at any FAST event. Please see a member of the FAST Staff if you need decals. For a complete list of FAST rules, visit www.fastondirt.com and download the 2010 rule sheet.
