Contingency Awards Program

Dear SMX racers,

We have aggregated all the info on the contingency awards offered for the Spec MX-5 Challenge Series presented by Toyo Tires races + regular season championships + overall championship AS WELL AS Spec MX-5 payouts for NASA ST5 and SCCA STL races in a Spec MX-5 race car. There is not a program with more contingency awards on offer.

Mazda Motorsports pays Mazda “cash,” PAGID pads (specify fronts or rears when collecting), and even Toyo cash at the three SCCA regional events in which the Spec MX-5 Challenge Series competes; NASA pays Toyo cash; SCCA pays Toyo cash; Toyo pays Toyo Bucks through a NASA portal (for NASA events) and another portal for SCCA events.
