2017 Round 1 - CANCELLED - PittRace

Cancelled --- Round 1 - 14 May - PittRace - with 65th Cumberland US Majors

Due to lower than expected entries and the time constraints imposed by a restructuring of the Majors race groups, the Steel Cities Region and Touring Race Promotions have cancelled Round 1 of the Fidelity Power Systems Pro IT Series scheduled for 14 May at Pittsburgh International Race Complex. The remainder of the Pro IT schedule stands as published with the next race scheduled at NJMP Lightning on 4 June with the Lightning Challenge Regional.

 We regret that our competitors will not be able to compete in this US Majors Tour event but understand the realities of major event scheduling. The Series thanks the Steel Cities Region for the opportunity to participate in their prestigious "Cumberland" event.

 With the exception of reduced participation requirements, there will be no change in the recently announced Pro IT Partners Program which recognizes and rewards full time competitors.

2017 Pro IT Partners Program

The Pro IT Series creates a loyalty program

Throughout the years, the Fidelity Power Systems Pro IT Series has had a solid core of regular competitors compete in most or all of the races in the season. They have provided the stability and continuity which has made Pro IT the leading support series in the Northeast for the past nine years. The series very much appreciates their support and desires to properly recognize their contribution. To accomplish this goal, the Series is establishing the Pro IT Partners Program to recognize and reward full time competitors.

This year, the Pro IT Partners Program will provide a $400 bonus to drivers who compete in all seven of the scheduled races during 2017 and a $250 bonus to drivers who compete in six races. These bonuses are in addition to the normal event and year-end payouts based on event performance. The 2017 partners will be honored at the season ending banquet on 7 October during the Trans-Am race weekend.

Round 4 in August is at the popular New Hampshire Motor Speedway. NER always hosts a great event and we are happy to return.

The Series returns to Palmer Motorsports Park for Round 5 with the NERRC Series. Pro IT debuted at Palmer last year and is excited to return to this evolving, picturesque New England track.

The season finale will feature a double race on the NJMP Thunderbolt Circuit for Round 6 and 7. These races will support the Trans-Am Series, the premier North American road race series.
