“We are excited to have the Race of Champions 602 Sportsman on hand at Freedom,” stated track owner Bob Reis. “We are trying to build something with the Series for our Sportsman racers to have a fun alternative that gives them a chance to travel, but also maintain an affordable package that keeps them racing at their home track each week. It’s a good formula and we feel that it’s going to give our fans something exciting to watch.”
