THE RULES-The rule are sanctioned by the MMA and compliance will be strictly enforced. Officials of the MMA will be at each event run under it's sanction. A rule infraction will result in the complete loss of season points, and drivers will not be allowed to compete until the problem is corrected. All drivers are required to sign a contract for these rules before they receive their memberships. There is no engine claim, but a protest rule will be in effect.
THE COST- A membership in MMA costs $450.00 and includes the four-point cage, the cam, and the membership card. An MMA turn-key car costs $7995.00 and includes the membership.
PURPOSE-Reiterating his primary motives for forming the MMA racing group, Reynolds said, "To compete in the top five at most tracks, you would need upwards of $20,000.00 for a UMP Modified car. We are putting an economical modified on the track for $7995.00. We can't control a member from buying a quality set of gauges and adding to the cosmetics of their car, but those kinds of additions will not change the performance of the car on the track."
