“We were looking for a way to get exposure to the sprint car teams and I read about the Series sponsorship dilemma in AARN. Knowing the financial struggles first hand of what it takes to field a race team weekly, I felt this was a great way to give back to some well deserving guys.”

This year the drivers will be racing for the $3,000 top prize that will go to the driver who is crowed the champion after a long 63 race schedule which will kick off on March 22nd at Lincoln Speedway.
