It’s simply the place to be, especially if you love motorcycle drag racing, Got records?
New for the 2019 edition of Man Cup motorcycle drag racing, the Crazy 8’s class has been dropped from the line up as the redundancy of having an 8.88 class and an 8.90 Super Comp class just seemed repetitive.
Man Cup and NHDRO sanctions have shaken hands and will recognize racers who race for championship points in both sanctions. Simply, racers who race in the same class in both sanctions can earn points of equal value to each sanction. This can mean less travel and more racing time for racers and not miss out on championship points.
Racers should be pleased to know that Man Cup has adjusted its payout policies in the Sportsman and ET class racing categories. In short Man Cup has eliminated the two lowest tiers of payouts and this frees up more money to devote to guaranteed purses, with no upper cap to the classes. The equation is simple, the greater the number of entrants and class participation, the greater the pay-out to the racers.
Man Cup also is pleased to welcome back Pro Fuel sponsor Hawaya Racing to the fold. Johnny Vickers and company will be at all the Man Cup events in 2019 and they are the proud sponsors of Hawaya Racing Pro Fuel. Preston Bartlett will be out.
The Spring Cup event will begin with gates opening Wednesday, April 4th at 12 noon for early arriving racers who need the extra time to come in and set up, as well as to accommodate the sponsor’s Midway.
Hotel Information – The event hotel for this race will be the La Quinta Inns & Suites, Valdosta, Ga. They are located off I-75 exit, 18, just 14 miles from the race track. The hotel phone is 229-247-7755 and you must request the Man Cup Group Rate for the sanction discount.
See you in One Week!!
