Will there be a $57,500 champion in 2018?
Race fans can witness this historic chase get underway on March 16-17 when the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco opens its season with the Melvin L. Joseph Memorial Weekend at Delaware’s Georgetown Speedway.
Thanks to the efforts of Sunoco Race Fuels and Insinger Performance, the STSS offers the most lucrative champion’s share in the country for big-block/small-block Modified racers this season.
The ‘home-track’ American Racer Cup presented by Sunoco pays $10,000 to the overall champion based upon a driver’s 10 best finishes at their respective home track utilizing American Racer tires.
Now – via a partnership with Sunoco and Insinger Performance proprietor Bruce Insinger – very healthy bonuses are available to competitors.
Should a driver win the American Racer Cup overall crown and both the STSS North and South Regions, they will receive a cash bonus of $25,000!
This ‘Grand Champion’ would be in line to collect a massive $57,500 at year-end.
A $10,000 cash bonus awaits should a driver win the American Racer Cup plus the STSS North or South Region.
The richest season in history is approaching quickly.
For the STSS Velocita-USA South Region, the Season Opener is Saturday, March 17 at Georgetown with the Melvin L. Joseph Memorial, a 49-lap, $6,949-to-win event that also serves as the 50th race in series history. A preliminary program takes place on Friday (March 16).
The Halmar International North Region gets its start at N.Y.’s Orange County Fair Speedway on Sunday, April 8 with the fifth annual ‘Hard Clay Open’ offering $5,000 to win for 50 laps around the Legendary House of Power.
Points begin to tabulate for the American Racer Cup on April 13, running through Labor Day Weekend (Monday, Sept. 3).
