For starters, trade in the Apple ][ for a computer that can do both uppercase and lowercase characters.

You need you establish yourself as one of the f astest club drivers to even consider racing nationally. Win a few club races, go to a big race and get known is my suggestion. Your not going to be racing nationals your first year.
