This point series for the all motor class will be contested over 6 events between Old Bridge Township Raceway Park and Atco Raceway. Only the best 4 races will count towards each drivers cumulative points. The racers will be competing for a guaranteed event payout in addition to bragging rights and a year end championship purse courtesy of the series sponsors. The nations top naturally aspirated sportsman racers will be battling it out so this promises to be an exciting series for racers and spectators alike.
We are truly happy to announce that K-Tuned and Drag Cartel are our sponsors for this points series chase.
