The ASRA/CCS 2022 Season Finale event took place at Homestead-Miami Speedway as the premier race event for the organization’s new owners.  Much of the existing schedule remained intact with a few adjustments, including the addition of “Dash For Cash” races paying down to fifth place.  New to the series, an online registration process was implemented for the final round and included paperless tech and contingency forms.  Live, online grid, timing, and results features were added to the website and an app for mobile devices is expected to be in place for the start of the 2023 season.

The weekend schedule started with perfect weather and three practice groups on track Saturday morning until lunch break, with three 25-minute GT races kicking off the afternoon schedule of racing, followed by five seven-lap sprint races.  The Sunday schedule also included several rounds of practice until the lunch break with the remaining thirteen seven-lap sprint races with the cash-paying GP classes concluding the action-packed weekend.

Alex Arango was the winningest racer of the weekend with six first-place finishes, which included wins in both the Unlimited GP and 300 GP Dash for Cash classes.  Arango was an early leader in all of his races during the event and the hotly contested Unlimited GP was no exception.  Arango led the first lap of the race with Eric Wood and Gabriel DaSilva in hot pursuit.  The top three each held down the front spot as they continued to battle for the checkered flag for all seven laps of the race.  DaSilva’s lead was thwarted by a false neutral and Arango was able to reclaim the front spot to take the final victory of the day with the top three finishing the race in the same order as lap one.

The event brought all three of the Silva brothers together to compete and even finish the GTU with all three on the podium.  Lucas Silva finished first with Fernando Silva second, and Bruno Silva in third. Lucas Silva took home the cash for this class, and Edward Sulliva was the fourth Dash for Cash winner with his first-place finish in the Lightweight GP race.

The newly reformed ASRA/CCS will move forward with additional changes being implemented off season to include new classes that reflect FIM class structures, fully digital race registration, mobile check-in and contingency reporting, social media support for real-time access to grids, results, and other information.  The first race of the 2023 season is scheduled to take place at Carolina Motorsports Park April 15-16th, 2023 for the Atlantic, Florida, Mid-Atlantic, and Southeast regions, and will include the AMA Sanctioned ASRA Team Challenge Series Presented by Michelin Tires.
