Chassis builder brings back popular contingency program
MIAMI, Fla. [February 8, 2018] – Howe Racing Enterprises (HRE) has announced the return of the Howe Fast Forward program for the Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli’s TA2 class.
Established in 2017, the program is focused on rewarding competitors within the highly competitive TA2 class who choose to participate during the early stages of the 2018 season. The program will distribute $10,000 across the first 100 TA2 entries sporting a Howe-built chassis and Howe decal.
“Trans Am’s TA2 competitors have been good to Howe Racing Enterprises,” said Chas Howe, Owner of HRE. “The Fast Forward program is designed to give something back to our customers by helping to offset race entry expenses over the initial events of the 2018 season. We like the idea of spreading out our awards, rather than rolling them all into a single, large sum; we want to help as many of our customers and TA2 competitors as possible.”
In addition to the Fast Forward program, HRE will continue to maintain its onsite presence at Trans Am events with parts and technical assistance available to teams large and small.
“Chas and Howe Racing Enterprises have made substantial contributions to the TA2 class since its creation,” said John Clagett, President of The Trans Am Race Company. “We’re pleased he has chosen to continue with the Fast Forward initiative; I believe it makes a meaningful contribution to our competitors in the early stages of the season and helps Trans Am get off to a great start.”
Competitors at Round 1 of the 2018 Trans Am Championship at Sebring International Raceway, March 3-4, will be the first eligible for the Howe Fast Forward program.
