ChumpCar World Series

Chump12ChumpCars return for 2-race weekend in 2014

The ChumpCar World Series – North America’s home for $500 race cars and endurance racing – is on the schedule for a double race August 2-3, featuring seven-hour endurance races each day. On the drag strip is the Bracket Drag Racing Series.

ChumpCar racing features hunks of screaming junk that are basically held together with duct tape and bailing twine. It’s grassroots racing for people who like to wrench on their cars, drive fast and have a blast doing it. If this sounds like you, check out the ChumpCar website and sign up a team for BIR’s two races. Teams are required to have a minimum of four drivers who take shifts driving.

The series rules are pretty simple: Your race car can’t be worth more than $500 before you install specific safety equipment. You also need a ChumpCar Competition License, which you can get by enrolling in the two-hour ChumpCar Driver’s School prior to the race.

The event is a Dual Event Weekend, where fans can watch the ChumpCars and drag racing for the cost of a single ticket. Daily admission is $20. Kids 12 and under are free.
