We believe a strong diversified RAAM Qualifying system will benefit RAAM, the various events, the racers and the sport as a whole.  Toward that end, RAAM management encourages event owners/directors to submit applications to become a RAAM Qualifying event. In an effort to insure the integrity of the system and the RAAM brand, RAAM management has established certain procedures and standards for becoming an RQ.
