Mid America off Road Association is a non-profit race sanctioning organization that was
founded in 1972 to organize off-road enthusiasts and promote the sport of off-road racing.
MAORA offers two highly competitive Driver’s points series, both short course and 200km
endurance and sets the rules and regulations to be followed by the racers, track owners and
MAORA provides rules and organizational structure for each event. MAORA has a strong
and growing community of drivers, co-drivers, pit crews, organizers, promoters and
volunteers. Drivers often come from across the nation to participate in MAORA events and
share each other’s passion for competition. Co-drivers in the MAORA series tend to have
management and technology backgrounds. Pit crew and race team members are typically
professional automotive technicians and hard core automotive enthusiasts.
MAORA currently offers a short course and endurance points series. The short course
usually consists of 3 heats of 10 to 12 (varies) laps on tracks sometimes 5/8 mile (or more)
long. The ever growing in popularity endurance racing tracks can be 3 miles long (or longer)
and run 3 hours or 30 laps which ever happens firsts.
With competitors hauling from all over the US MAORA covers a wide variety of racers and
styles. This creates incredible opportunities for sponsors to have exposure in several states.
This exposure ranges from the shops where these vehicles are built and prepped for the race
events to the US highways where the haulers are traveling to and from each event.
