West Seneca, New York, January 12th, 2017- The NYPA Midget Association announces the
retention of NASCAR Whelen All American Series Tier 2 status at Holland Speedway. The

"We are excited to have NASCAR and Holland Speedway's continuing support and we look
forward to being part of the Whelen All American Series again." says Charlie DiRosa, NYPA President.
In today's economy fielding a weekly race team is more than challenging but as a part of the
NWAAS program, the NYPA Midget Association weekly division can look forward to a generous
end-of-year point fund as part of the NWAAS Tier 2 benefits. The point fund in total amounts to
$3,000, and the fund is distributed amongst the top ten finishers at the end of the season, with
the winner taking home a check for $1,000.

aged 14 to 17. In addition to a trip to the NWAAS Awards Banquet, a $10,000 UNOH
scholarship is awarded to the recipient.
More than 20 drivers and teams will compete in both the NYPA Midget Association NASCAR
Whelen All American Series events at Holland Speedway as well as the regional touring series
which will see the drivers competing at 5 different tracks in the region, Holland Speedway,
