Hi, The Miss Geico Triple Crown series starts at Ocean City, Maryland, 2nd is Patchogue, N.Y. 3rd and final is Pt Pleasent N.J.. I believe the rules are going to be posted soon at the OPAracing.org site. The other OPA races are St. Clair, Mich. Harrison Township,Mich. Cambridge, Maryland and Chatanooga Tenn.

Having been correct on the chronological order of the events, I will go out on a limb here, you would have to compete in all 3 events to be eligible for the prize money, and the points accumulated would give you your place in the series.

I appreciate everything the OPA, Smitty, John and Geico have done for us but I would really like to get some information straight because the information I was given at Kart-to-Kart is different than what is being posted.

2008 Should be a good year!!

This was asked at the meeting we had last night at cart to cart and we were trying to clarify.

If a team was only able to attend one of the Triple Crown races and for what ever reason could not do the other two, they do not recieve any winning money if they place? Either regular OPA payout or the Triple Crown payout? In other words its a winner take all at the end? I got the impression there may be a few racers that might not be able to make all three and if its a combined deal there wasnt any incentive to do just a single race. just trying to relay some of the questions i heard. Thanks

So if I Cant do Patchohue, NY because a wedding I should just save my boat, gas and travel money and not even attend the other 2 racers? Even if I win I get Zero..
