    Hello, I'm a little confused over what age to list when
    participating in a series of races. According to USAT you
    are to race in the age group you are the day of the race.
    But, when I signed up for a race series (7 races, the last
    one in September), the series rules said to sign up at the
    age you are as of the last race. Is this correct? I'm now
    44, with my birthday in August, so I will be in the 45 to 49
    age group before the last race. In what age group will I be
    listed in the USAT standings?

    Thanks, Larry

    If I remember correctly, you'll be ranked in the 45-49 AG
    anyway, because USAT ranks according to the age you are on
    the last day of the ranking year. So even if the race had
    put you in the 40-44 AG for the 1st few races, USAT would
    rank you in 45-49.
