NMCA WEST has announced that 2017 will be the final season of its southern California west coast drag racing series. With the incredible growth ProMedia Events has recognized with its NMRA and NMCA east coast series it has become imperative to open available weekends for future east coast events and focus valuable resources and energies where the company will see the most growth and opportunity. NMCA WEST will continue it’s popular Auto-X series, which regularly sells out and attracts many of the top west coast autocross participants each event.
NMCA WEST thanks its core drag racers, ambassadors, and sponsors for supporting its program since 2011. “We have made so many good friends in west coast drag racing and will miss seeing them on a regular basis,” said Steve Wolcott President & CEO of NMCA WEST. “The entire NMCA WEST team thanks our racers and sponsors for their support and we wish them all the best in the future. We also appreciate our special relationship with Auto Club Dragway and know that the track will attract additional events for west coast drag racers.”
The Hotchkis NMCA WEST Auto-X Series presented by Nitto Tire will continue in 2018 and beyond at Auto Club Speedway as it attracts hundreds of the top autocross participants attracted by the incredible course design and opportunity to make laps each event. Stay tuned for 2018 NMCA WEST Auto-X dates to be announced.

Class champions (except brackets) will each receive a championship Victor award and Nitto Tire Diamond Tree champions ring.
