Long Family Autosport to Join AC-2

Long Family Autosport has set a foothold in the ranks of AmeriCar and will look to bring more success to the underdog operation. Today, Long Family Autosport will look to join AC-2 ranks instead of going to AC-1 which was expected by many to happen.

"Dima, Ryan, and myself felt that the best option to go with was the cars in the AC-2 class instead of AC-1" co-owner Tony Long said. "Even though our financing was there for the possibility of 2 AC-1 cars, we decided to be safe and go with the AC-2 cars."

"This is not due to competition," Ryan Long stated. "Even though we were competitive with the top teams, our campaign in NAAC went a little over budget than we had hoped. The move to AC-2 is precautionary for 2019 because we have bigger plans for 2020 and future years."

The plan for the team is to use the AmeriCar team as a development team for the NAAC Launch Energy Series team. Rumors are running in the paddock that Dima van Hall will move up to the NAAC team by 2020 unless the sponsorship deal the team has planned falls through.

The Long brothers nor van Hall commented on whether or not the rumors on van Hall going to the NAAC team for 2020 is true even though the team has stated that there is a possibility of it happening.

Richmond:
Casey Lester (in-car after the checkered flag): YES!!! CHAMPIONS, BABY! NO WAY! I can't believe it. Thank you all so much. I can't describe how this feels. I can't even process it yet. Wow...

(post-race) "This has been an incredible year for everybody. Mr. Lynhurst has a top-notch team working on these cars every race and I always felt like we had a shot to get the top step of the podium. Never had such an incredible bunch of guys behind me over the course of a season. I'm not sure what 2018 holds for me; that's gonna be something we will figure out in the next few months. I'm sorta scared for Texas, not gonna lie.

Silly Season News:
Lynhurst Racing Technologies to return for 2019 Overdrive season

Needless to say, the Lynhurst Racing Technologies team has shocked the Formula Overdrive paddock by winning the 2018 championship, sealing it a race early with Casey Lester's 4th-place finish at Richmond. They have remained rather mum in terms of announcements and social media involvement during the season, but have begun to change that in recent weeks with the announcement that they will return in 2019.

"We are pleased to announce that LRT will return for the 2019 Imago Overdrive Championship Series," the press release made by team owner Owen Lynhurst begins. "While no drivers have been retained for certain at this point in the season, we are in negotiations with several drivers to pilot our championship-caliber Overdrive cars. We would also like to announce that Aquafina has come onboard as a primary sponsor for the #10 car next season. This is an exciting opportunity for us to have this new partnership and we look to provide a refreshing look for Aquafina in victory lane once again."

LRT sent out a later announcement confirming that the team will be supplied by STS for next season and additionally revealed that the team planned on retracting to two full-time cars with Mardiros Fermanian returning to the #30 Air Armenia STS (formerly the #16) while the #10 currently has no driver. Rumors suggest that Montreal native Guy Beugnet, in his first full season on a professional scale such as Formula Overdrive, may not return to the team. Casey Lester, the 2018 champion who recorded five victories and sits on a 104-point lead heading into the final race at Texas, has not been in heavy negotiations about a return to the series and hit out at intentions of finding a TM Master Cup Series ride on a partial schedule in the future.

Laser Motorsports Moves from FARC to AmeriCar AC-2

Canadian sports car team Laser Motorsports announced they will be returning to their roots after an unsuccessful FARC Lowe Dollar Series venture, joining AmeriCar's AC2 class for 2019. Team owner Ted Johnson stated that the compatibility of the team's current FARC chassis with AC-2 regulations influenced the decision, and that the team will continue fielding their standard #91. Manufacturer and driver choices will be announced at a later date, but the team's current drivers, former FARC race winner Bill Tissom and Dash Cup refugee Noemi Giordano, are not expected to return.

Long Beach Autosport announces plans - expands to two cars in AC-1

Family-owned operation Long Beach Autosport will expand to two cars in the revamped AmeriCar series in 2019. Natasha Pierce will continue to drive the #460 Yang Microsystems/Todd Bank Lenard, but she will be joined by a second part-time entry. The #640 car will be driven by 18-year-old British karting ace Jake Gilliam following his breakthrough debut season in the British Karting Championship. Gilliam will be sponsored by Slam Dunk Sporting Goods and Z1 Energy Drink. It is expected that Gilliam will contest up to 6 events this season in preparation for a full-time effort in 2020.

Maxwell Engineering soldiers on in AC-2

Long-time race outfit Maxwell Engineering announced today that they will be joining the AC-2 class for the 2019 AmeriCar season after debuting in the series last year. The announcement came as a relief to staff as their had been rumours that the team was experiencing financial issues, however that appears to be solved as the team has found on a new driver and sponsorship package. It was revealed that driver Rylan Lott had been let go at the end of 2018 in favour of 20-year-old Kalysta Blackburn, an up-and-coming stock car racer who brings much needed sponsorship from her family's Blackburn Tires business to the #619 Saar.

Karson Garrison and family announce entry into AC-1 Class
Karson Garrison, the sophmore who showed distinct improvement in AmeriCar this year as a second year racer for his family team, announced together with father Arnold Garrison Sr. that his #33 Oiluminati Saar would be returning to the track this year in the newly-formed AC-1 category, bringing back his same car from last year.
"We're excited for a new opportunity, and with my family behind me, I know I can keep improving." said the younger Garrison, 23, at today's press conference.

Journeyman Scott O'Leary announces a move down to AC-4
Part-time Oregon racer and frequent political candidate Scott O'Leary announced he will be scaling back his racing operation this year to focus on races for state senate, circuit court judge, Jackson County commissioner and Medford school board. Because of this, he's dropped down to a lower series to allocate more funds for his personal campaign. Reason Magazine returns as the sponsor on his Lenard.

Indira Patel has retired from racing for the time being to start a family, and Isabella Gonzalez has returned to racing Mexican stock cars as she plots her next career move.

Laser Motorsports officially on AC-2 grid, looking for driver
Canada's Laser Motorsports team officially confirmed that they will join the AmeriCar AC-2 grid, aiming to run the full schedule. The team still has yet to confirm a driver of their renumbered #61 Lenard, however, and owner Ted Johnson has reportedly made classified postings on DiscountRaceParts.com offering opportunities to any interested road racer, with preference given to those with "additional monetary support".

OOC: If you want your driver to be considered for this car, PM me here or on Discord.

Kronenberg SuperSport Report

Lukas Kronenberg spent his 2018 racing season doing 2 things: driving inconsistently and refining his English. The notoriously quiet Austrian flashed in equal parts speed, incompetence, and perhaps a bit more than the former, mediocrity.

With the move to split class competition, team boss, father of the driver, and himself a former racer Jakob Kronenberg has thrown around the idea of competing himself. Despite the several smash ups Lukas found himself in, the hard work of the team engineers and the financial backing of imMobile, the team still has a fleet of AC-1 capable cars.

Jakob has stated he would be happy to fill out the field at any division, he's apparently got the racing itch again in his late 50s.

The team also asked me to report clearly that no plans have been confirmed yet.

Okay everyone, given I will be swarmed with university work in the coming weeks, I will give one final deadline to add teams and drivers: March 31st

If you have any entries you'd like to contest AmeriCar with, that's the final deadline to add them.

The deadline for schemes and ratings will be April 21st
