    The road to the ProAm Nationals begins on March 13th at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway Bullring lot. VegasProAm 2010 will be the southwest's first ProAm point series and consists of 4 events. All events will be judged (Formula Drift style) by Ernie Fixmer(Formula Drift Jugde/D1 and FD driver), and local FD licensed drivers Tommy Suell and Mike Bolonos. VegasProAm will be similar to the 2009 FD ProAm with practice, qualifying, and "Top 8/16" elimination. Drivers will go door to door for points and prizes at each event. Point leader at the end of the series will receive an FD license and 2nd through 4th will be awarded invitations to the ProAm nationals at Phoenix International Raceway. This event is intended for intermediate to advanced drivers. Track will include 3rd gear entry, K-rails, and four judged clipping points.
