NEORVCA: Northeast Off Road Vehicle Competition Association

Founded 1983, Cornish, Maine

Announcing NEORVCAís 1999 schedule of events:


NEORVCA is pleased to announce our schedule of events for the 1999 racing season. This is our 16th year of sanctioning sand racing events in the Northeast. We have been told that we are the best kept secret in motor sports. Our goal this season is to let the secret out. We run clean family oriented events and do not tolerate drinking or other unruly behavior.

NEORVCA will be sanctioning 14 events this year at two locations in Southern Maine, plus we will be putting on a special show, under the lights at the Cumberland Fair. We now have over 140 members hailing from 7 Northeast states that race everything from stock trucks and ATVís to blown-injected dragsters.

NEORVCA events are run in an NHRA style handicapped-bracket format that allows all vehicles to be competitive. Frequently races are won by mere thousands-of-a-second.
