OPA Winter Awards Banquet Celebration
February 10, 2015

Coming off another very successful racing season, the OPA Teams once again converged at the Stockton Seaview Hotel in Galloway Township, NJ holding their annual meeting and moved over to the Awards Banquet hosted by the Oyster Creek Inn in Leeds Point, NJ.

​During the meeting, Ed “Smitty” Smith, President of OPA, confirmed the unification with APBA again for the 2015 Season.

Some changes were discussed during this meeting that will be reflected in the 2015 Rule Book. OPA will continue to red flag races anytime there is an incident on the course. Once the course is clear, the race will be restarted.

When you have another 20,000 people come for the races, it didn’t really enhance the economic impact due to all the congestion.
