Clarification of Class Age Structure for 2018 WKA Manufacturers Cup Series

Clarifying yesterday’s announcement regarding Class Age Structure for the 2018 Manufacturers Cup Classes, starting with the Daytona event in a couple weeks, WKA Officials recognized that some of the terminology in the announcement and on the WKA website at the time of the announcement was inconsistent with the 2018 WKA Technical Manual.   Officially, as of this release, the printed 2018 WKA Technical Manual has the most recent and correct guidance for Age Regulations and we have also listed it below for each class.
