Assignment of Numbers

  1. If you had a number reserved in 2013, you have first dibs on that number assuming you are not changing race groups.
  2. If you bought another person’s car, you DO NOT have first option on that number just because it is on the car.
  3. If you reserved a number last year and did not run at least one race with that number, you do not have first option on that number this year and the number is considered unassigned.
  4. Please check the 2013 list of permanent numbers to know what numbers are potentially taken.
  5. Three(3) digit numbers will only be assigned to drivers who are using the same number on the same car with another club (RMVR, PCA, etc.).
  1. For all RMDIV events, your permanent number will only be held until the official race entry deadline for each event (midnight the Sunday prior to the event). If you register after the deadline you may lose your permanent number for that event.
