In 1990, the concept of Electrathon racing was introduced to the United States. It started when an Austrailian Electrathon champion named Clark Beasley went to California to introduce the idea. He formed the New Electrathon Racing Association (NERA). Electrathon is a combination of the words Electric and Marathon. Electrathon is a one-hour endurance event for single passenger electric powered cars using 73lb of lead acid batteries.
