Berlin Raceway and Champion Racing Association Powered by JEGS officials have announced the 2015 CRA dates for Berlin Raceway. As in the past the dates will include two ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by JEGS sanctioned events and one JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour sanctioned event.
The Battle at Berlin 251, one of the premier Template Super Late Model events in the country, will move to Tuesday, June 16th, right after the first Michigan International Speedway NASCAR weekend, which was the date for that event for several very successful seasons. The 251 lap event will pay out over $100,000 in purse and cash bonuses, for one of the largest purses Template Super Late Models will race for all season. Coopersville, Michigan native and three time ARCA/CRA Super Series Champion Johnny Van Doorn won the last two Battle at Berlin 251’s, while NASCAR Star Kyle “Rowdy” Busch won in 2010, 2011 and 2012, when the event was titled with his name. More detailed information on this event will be released at a later date.
