Salem, IN — Champion Racing Association Powered by JEGS officials have announced that Victory Custom Trailers will continue as the title sponsor of the Victory Custom Trailers CRA Junior Late Models and continue as the Official Racing Trailer of CRA for the 2020 and 2021 race seasons. After a very successful inaugural season, CRA officials are already hard at work on the series 2020 schedule and making minor adjustments to the 2020 rule package for the series, both the 2020 schedule and the 2020 rules package will be released soon. New teams wanting to compete with the series in 2020 need to submit a Driver Resume, that form is available on the CRA web site under the Junior Late Model tab.
The Victory Custom Trailers CRA Junior Late Models was a new racing series in 2019 to focus on a youth movement for short track stock car racing that saw 10 to 15-year-old drivers compete amongst themselves for both experience and recognition in full size late models with an economical drive train and suspension alternatives.
Some of the key components for the rule package for the Victory Custom Trailers CRA Junior Late Models will be the mandated use of the $3900 factory sealed Chevrolet Performance 602 crate engine. Teams will also be utilizing less expensive rear ends, transmissions and springs and spec KONI Shocks. The series will also be racing on 8-inch steel wheels and utilizing 8-inch Hoosier Racing tires. The series competes on 3/8 mile and under racetracks with most events consisting of 8 lap heat races and a 25-lap feature.
14-year-old Michigan teenager Chase Burda was the series inaugural Champion for the 2019 season. Burda had a very impressive season getting six feature wins in the series eight events, including a stretch of four wins in a row in the series second event through the series fifth event. Burda had five heat race wins out of the seven events that featured heat races and was the MPM Marketing Fast Qualifier at seven of the eight events in 2019. Burda will be official crowned the series 2019 Champion at the 2019 CRA Awards Banquet on Friday, January 3rd, 2020 at the Crowne Plaza Indianapolis Downtown at Union Station. Burda is moving up to compete with the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by Chevrolet Performance in 2020. With Burda moving up in class, it will create more opportunities for drivers to get event victories and a new series Champion in 2020.
