2018 ND CUP presented by Long Road Racing

Regional Racing Series Announced by Long Road Racing

Long Road Racing will PAY your entry fees if you want to PLAY!!!!

Long Road Racing in conjunction with the NASA Mid Atlantic Region, announces the formation of the 2018 ND Cup presented by Long Road Racing.  The ND Cup is for the 2016+ (ND) MX-5 cup race cars.

The only thing better than racing is FREE racing!  Long Road Racing (LRR) will pay the entry fee for ALL ND Cup drivers competing in the 2018 ND Cup races. 

Is your entry fee paid for if you only race one weekend?  YES

Are your entry fees paid for if you race ALL of the weekends?  YES.

To participate in this amazing new race series, follow these 3 easy steps:

  1. Hold or acquire a current NASA Membership and NASA Competition License.
  2. Enter any of the remaining 2018 NASA Mid Atlantic races (Just tell LRR you are racing – Info@LongRoadRacing.com) and LRR and NASA will take care of the rest.
  3. Show up in a Global Mazda MX-5 cup car and race!!!

LRR will provide trophies for this race series; and wait for it… a year-end special Air-Freshener Trophy!  Who doesn’t need an air freshener in an open car?  Of course, it’s OK to run the Mazda Motorsports hard top.

Each NASA weekend has two races.   There are three dates on the schedule so you can get 6 RACES. Run as many races as you like.  If you run all three weekends you not only compete to win the air freshener, but also win the bragging rights of all your buddies.


  • Show up in a global MX-5 cup car: with or without a hardtop
  • Have a supercharger or sequential? – we’ll work out the details
  • Follow NASA ST-5 rules
  • Follow the GMX-5 homologation document
  • BFGoodrich DOT approved dry tires (BFGoodrich homologated rain tires)
  • BFGoodrich Contingency Program (click here for info)
  • Participants will be registered as NASA ST-5 cars and appear that way on the NASA MA results however…
    • LRR will sort the GMX-5 cup cars out into ND Cup results and points
    • Trophies, podium pictures; and of course, the coveted Championship Air Freshener will be awarded by LRR
    • In addition, all drivers will ALSO be considered as ST-5 drivers and be eligible for existing, NASA ST contingency programs.  It a 2-fer!

It’s that easy!  Run the ND Regional Racing Series with NASA Mid Atlantic. Make a run for the Championship Air Freshener! Make it fun… just make it happen!
