About Star Mazda Championship Series:
The 2008 Star Mazda Champion Series will be twelve races held across the
United States and televised on the Speed Channel.
Formula Mazda Racing, which features open wheel race cars adaptable to both
oval tracks and road courses, is conducted on several levels of competition.
Since 1991, the professionally organized Star Mazda Series has provided the
most popular format for sponsors, spectators, and upward bound drivers. The
success of the Star Mazda Series is evidenced by the fact that fields of 30
to 40 cars have been commonplace at many races. The annual schedules for the
Star Mazda Series have included high profile events where Formula Mazda cars
appear as the "opening act" to some of America's top drawing racing series.
In its supporting role, the Star Mazda Series has been paired with a variety
of major types of racing, including such headliners as the American LeMans
Series, IndyCar, Formula One, race trucks and NASCAR stock cars.
