The Dirt Tour

The Dirt Tour presented by Visit Leland

The North Carolina league is hard at work across the state laying the foundation for spring 2017 racing. A major part of this effort is to mobilize folks to organize teams and coaches at the local level. The Dirt Tour is the beginning of building the NC NICA league from the ground up.

Topics covered will be:

  • What is NICA?
  • What is the League?
  • What is a Team?
  • What is a NICA Coach?
  • Who can participate?
  • How do start a team
  • How to become a coach
