Champion Racing Association and Crisp Motorsports Park officials have unveiled the weekend schedule for the annual CRA SpeedFest event held every January at Crisp Motorsports Park in Cordele, Georgia. The event will be a two-day event for the second year in a row, taking place on Friday, January 25thand Saturday, January 26th, headlined by the Super Late Models of the ARCA/CRA Super Series.


Joining the ARCA/CRA Super Series 200-lap feature on the schedule will be the Pro Late Models of the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour, who will race for 125 laps on January 26th. Also on the racing card this year will be the future stars of the Legends and Bandolero divisions, as well as the Southern Pro Am Truck Series division and the Wheelman Racing Series.


The Southern Pro Am Truck Series and the Wheelman Racing Series will run their 50-lap features on Friday, January 25th.


CRA SpeedFest has traditionally been a three-day event, but a poor forecast turned the 2018 event into a two-day show with qualifying and racing action taking place on the Saturday of race weekend. Teams and series officials collectively decided that the two-day format worked extremely well.


“We are really excited about SpeedFest,” said Ben Sumner, Crisp Motorsports Park promoter.  “In addition to the CRA Super and Pro Late Models, Legends, and Bandoleros we have expanded the program to include the popular Wheelman Series and the Southern Pro Am Pro Truck Series. All classes will qualify on Friday plus the Wheelman Series and Pro Trucks will run their features. Saturday will feature the Legend, Bandoleros, CRA Pro and Super Late Model main events. We look forward to seeing everyone and working with CRA and Speed51, and we anticipate a great turnout and another great show.”


The entire schedule for the 2019 CRA SpeedFest events can be seen below.
