  • NOA Closed Course/Straightaway Records

    Is there a list anywhere of the last known NOA Records per class anywhere online? I have found many records listed from back in those days but was curious if there was somewhere to see the last known records for each class come the end of the NOA. Thank you for any responses.

    Do you know the last year for NOA? I have the records published in the 1969 NOA rulebook.

      I do not off hand.

      I’d love to see the 1969 records though! Anyway you could take some photos of those and post them?

    The last NOA North/South race ever held was in 1974. Jimmy Adherholdt was high-point driver for the South and won the Title of "General Lee". I was "General Grant" for the North. I don't know if there were any othe NOA races after that, but I do know that was the final North/South race.

      To the question of when NOA closed shop, I'll add, Why?? I only ever got to one of their races, the NOA Nationals at Forest Lake, MN, in '68. Good turnout, well-run; Papa Smith was one of the inspectors, I believe.

      For that matter, is AOF out of business, and if so, why?

        AOF tried to have some races up to maybe 5 years ago... don't think more than a few boats ever showed up... I would think most AOF drivers are NBRA

          Why? I was there and I really can't remember why. It was the NOA World Championships in Alexandria, Louisiana. We had a secret meeting. Secret?? Everybody knew about it except Claude Fox and Carl Rylee, and in retrospect they probably knew all about it. We all were unhappy with the direction NOA was going but today I can't remember why. But the NOA Pro and Mod clubs split away and joined either AOF or APBA. In 1983 we, the leadship of The U.S. Title Series met with Claude Fox about reviving NOA but aligned with APBA instead. As far as AOF is concerned, Carl Staron puts on an AOF sanctioned event in Florida every year.
