This is ARRA

Our Mission Statement:
Auto Racing Research Associates (ARRA) is dedicated to the research, documentation and the maintaining of a library of the racing accomplishments of drivers and the weekly history of race tracks and racing series and organizations for archival purposes so that this vital information is not lost to time.

The adopted criteria that we here at ARRA use to determine what is and what is not a feature win:

(1) Any race conducted at a speedway that charges admission to spectators, licenses competitors to compete under a common set of rules and regulations, and that either allows all entrants to compete, or draws its starting field from the totality of the general entry through typical qualifying procedures or assignment should be designated as an ARRA-endorsed feature win for its winner.

(2) Any race that divides the totality of the general entry into groups - Feature Winners Races, Non-Feature Winners Races, Champions Races, Australian Pursuits, Races Of States, Reverse Races, Future Stars Races, Super DIRT Series Qualifying Heat Races, "Split Field Qualifying Features or similar should not be considered an ARRA-endorsed feature win.

(3) Photo finishes, ties, or races in which published rulings have led to more than one feature winner being declared by the speedway should be credited by ARRA as feature wins for each winner, with asterisk/footnote added.

(4) Races in which apparent winners have been subsequently reported as disqualified (and/or reinstated) should be examined on a case by case basis by ARRA and a determination made as to the rightful winner or winners.  In the same respect, if a situation arises that rests outside of the scope of the criteria, we will examine the situation and render a decision as to how it applies to our stated criteria

Regarding the validity and reliability of our research work:

 While the members of ARRA have done their own personal research and compilations and can with a definite degree of confidence - back the information in their efforts with certainty to be complete and accurate...there is always the chance of a missing statistic due to our research sources.  They are compiled to the best of our ability and to the limits of our research material.  The original intent of this website was to feature our research work alone (Fred Voorhees and Bill Braga).  However, we have also included research material from sources outside of our own an effort to become the "one stop historical database shop".  With that in mind, we cannot extend the same level of confidence in that work as we have in our own work....simply because we didn't do the work ourselves.  That is not in an effort to cast doubt on the reliability of others work....simply to point out that it is the work of others who have done the research and it was simply our choice to include it on our website.  We welcome getting notified of any inconsistencies and omissions in any of the work and will take each inquiry to task and try to look it up and resolve the issue.  It's all about the facts and adding to the documented history of our local sport.
