Spec MX-5 Challenge distinguishes event entry from points registration in the rules. Entry is done with the host sanctioning body (SCCA or NASA) for each regular-season race. These fees cover track rental, safety equipment, corner workers, tech, and administration among other things.
Points registration is done with Spec MX-5 Challenge, LLC and covers Series PR, administration, race direction, awards, and prizes among other things. Registration is a separate step from race entry in Spec MX-5 Challenge. Registration allows you to earn points and qualify for the Championship.
