The North American Formula 1000 Championship was founded in 2017 with one simple vision: A Driver Managed Series.
This led to the creation of a series where the drivers make the rules, select the racing venues, and help determine prize payouts.
Drivers voted to implement cost controls such as tire allocations, appearance money for every driver, and partnered with dedicated sponsors to provide exclusive prizes,
all in an effort to help drivers manage their racing budgets.
