Although details have not yet been announced, Formula USA has brought back the Team Owner Program and points fund in effect prior to the 2000 season run by SFX Motor Sports. In 2000 the F-USA Unlimited Superbike Points Fund was paid out to individual riders, with Champion Grant Lopez being paid $50,000 and second-in-points John Hopkins being paid $25,000. Under the terms of the 2001 Team Owner Program, points fund awards will be paid to the registered owner of each team, and individual riders can own their own teams.
According to SFX Motor Sports' Bill Syfan, the amount of money in the points fund and the payout schedule to participants in the Team Owner Program will be announced as soon as they are finalized.
Team Owner Program registration packets will be available from Nancy Selleck at SFX Motor Sports, (817) 332-4822, extension 102.
