CARS Regional Rally Director Position for Ontario

It is that time of year again when we have to poll the Club members for the RSO Club nominated candidate for the CARS Regional Rally Director position.
I know this all seems pretty fresh in people’s minds, but that’s because when Darryl handed in his resignation earlier this year, we had to appoint an interim. Warren Haywood was voted into the role.
In January 2021 the CARS Regional Rally Director position will again be up for election. Attached is the document outlining the procedure with regards to RSO Club members.
Candidate nominations will be accepted until midnight Oct 31st 2020, and then I will send out a list of nominees to the Clubs for members to vote on.
Please see the document for further details. And remember, there’s nothing like Rally Sport.
Let me know if you have any questions with regards to this procedure.
Also a quick reminder that the next RSO meeting is next week, Monday October 5th.  Please let me know if you have any Club updates to be added to the agenda/minutes. Meeting invitation and agenda will be sent out on the weekend.

RSO Secretary

CANDIDATE NOMINATION FOR THE 2021 CARS REGIONAL RALLY DIRECTOR

Michael Jordan to establish NASCAR Cup Series team

Michael Jordan to establish NASCAR Cup Series team with Denny Hamlin, Bubba Wallace will be the driver

In a surprising announcement, basketball legend Michael Jordan has agreed to partner with Denny Hamlin to purchase a NASCAR Cup Series charter. Bubba Wallace will be the driver when the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series season begins.

Jordan, of course, is widely considered the greatest basketball player to ever have donned a jersey, with six NBA championships to his name. (And he owned a rather excellent Mercedes, among many other tantalizing sports cars and luxury machines.) In addition to being the majority owner of this new, NASCAR Cup Series single-car team, Jordan also owns the Charlotte Hornets NBA franchise.

Wallace, the sole Black driver in the NASCAR Cup Series, had announced earlier this month that he would not return to drive for Richard Petty Motorsports. Jordan will become the first Black majority owner of a NASCAR team since Hall of Fame driver-owner Wendell Scott. Hamlin will be a minority owner of the new team. Hamlin and Jordan are close friends.

“Growing up in North Carolina, my parents would take my brothers, sisters and me to races, and I’ve been a NASCAR fan my whole life,” Jordan said in a news release. “The opportunity to own my own racing team in partnership with my friend, Denny Hamlin, and to have Bubba Wallace driving for us, is very exciting for me. Historically, NASCAR has struggled with diversity and there have been few Black owners. The timing seemed perfect as NASCAR is evolving and embracing social change more and more.”

Wallace has made 105 career starts in the NASCAR Cup Series, all of them with RPM. He has five top-10 finishes this season, including a fifth-place run in the regular-season finale at Daytona International Speedway.

Hamlin will continue to drive the No. 11 Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing, where his Cup Series career began in 2005. So far this year, he has six wins and is one of the favorites to win the 2020 championship.

The Jordan-Hamlin ownership group has not announced the new organization’s name, manufacturer affiliation, car number, or sponsors. It acquired the team charter from Germain Racing.
