Other Great places to get coverage this weekend

The Manufacturers Cup Motorcycle Drag Racing Series is dedicated to providing the Professional, the Sportsman and the ET Bracket Racer access to the very best facilities. Cup events consistently feature the largest fields in the sport of motorcycle drag racing. Top Fuel is our premier class, where we showcase 5 second, 250 mph action! The quickest side by side Top Fuel passes in history have been run, you guessed it, at a Cup event. With three events on the 2012 schedule, a points earning program has been put in place and the Cup Series will crown it’s first ever series champions in all classes come November.
