Fort Worth Texas / Minneapolis, Minnesota – The Championship Cup Series in conjunction with the Central Roadracing Association is pleased to announce a cooperative effort to promote and strengthen motorcycle road racing in the Mid-West. With the limited number of available non-conflicting dates at area facilities, the solution was to join forces and work together for the benefit of the racers. This special crossover event will be held during the CRA’s June 12-14 Twin Sprint weekend at Brainerd International Raceway, giving riders from both organizations the most in on track opportunities.
The action will kick off on Friday with a full day of practice, followed by a round of CRA points paying sprint races on Saturday. Then on Sunday, the CRA sprints will pay CCS Mid-West championship points in addition to CRA series points. With minor rule differences between the organizations, each group will issue official results and series points based on that groups rules and regulations. This insures that both organizations fulfill their obligations to the racers while giving them another great opportunity to compete against each other at a top notch facility.
“This is such a great opportunity for both clubs to work together” said Kevin Elliott President of CCS, “We have been interested in returning to Brainerd for a long time but didn’t want to hurt our relationship with the CRA. We are excited to have this chance to race with the CRA and hopefully expand this program in the future.”
CRA President Troy Pierson added, "We're very excited for this opportunity to work with CCS to further the sport. Brainerd International Raceway is a great venue for motorcycles, especially with the recent widening and repaving of the racing surface. We greatly look forward to welcoming the CCS racers in June and hope for many more in years to come."
