UWP to promote races independently
Upstate Watercraft Promotions, Inc (UWP) is proud to announce a restructure that will allow UWP to focus on developing racing in the United States.UWP has been the leading US promoter in innovation and racer pay-out. UWP believes that promoting races independently will allow them to focus totally on developing their circuit for the racing community and as a host for national level events.
UWP is an independent organization but will continue to promote personal watercraft racing and will follow international rules and guidelines set by the IJSBA as well as work with other associations so that competitors will be able to enjoy easy integration into UWP events.
While this does signal a departure from the relationship with the APBA racing establishment, UWP recognizes the value they have provided in forwarding the sport and wishes them continued success in their endeavors. UWP supports racers attending all races and events produced by any safe and professional organizer.
AJ at UWP stated today, “This is a win for our racers in offering new opportunities and for UWP to take our business in new directions.” AJ further said that “we have to be more innovative in how we produce and market our sport during these difficult economic times – we at UWP are looking forward to racing into the future with the exciting new developments!”
A new membership package will soon be announced. This membership will include numerous benefits- including membership in the American Watercraft Association (AWA).
UWP believes that this is an important part of our sport and encourages all PWC enthusiasts to join the AWA and their fight for your right to ride! This will also be a continued indication to the OEMs that we take all PWC issues seriously and will encourage the manufacturers to increase their support for grassroots racing and propel the sport into the next level.
Upstate Watercraft Promotions was established in 1995, and has been the grassroots to racing providing today’s racing for tomorrow’s world champions. For more information about the UWP and grassroots racing, visit www.uwpinc.com or call A.J. Handler (585) 330-0742.

Just looking for a little more clairification.

I would contact the promoter, but I believe from the statement 'none' are needed, they are independent. Similar to the DJSA races here in California, the promoter simply endorses their own program for their attendees. From this I believe they are supporting the AWA efforts, but not as a racing sanction.

I don't know all the reasons for this but I don't think the sport needs this type of splintering right now. We need the sanctioning bodies and promoters to set asside differences and work together as one unit.
