The 2017 racing season is nearly here race fans. As previously announced, the "One-of-A- Kind" Modified Coupes will return to the 1/5 mile bullring Big Country Speedway in 2017. The 5 race "2017 MOD COUPE CHALLENGE " presented by the Colorado Automobile Racing Club will kick off on June 17.
Much pre-race planning has already been done... including a GUARANTEED minimum purse per car of $150 (with CARC membership/car registration of $50). Additional individual club memberships will be available for $20 each. Incentives for repeat race attendance are also planned. Several corporate sponsors including Steve's Transmission and The Block Shop are already on board... with several more in the discussion phase. The series race schedule is as follows:
June 17......July 1......July 22......August 5......September 2
New promoters have brought renewed excitement to Big Country Speedway and individual race trophies (quick time, dash, main event) will be provided by these new for 2017 promoters. A season point championship trophy will be provided by the CARC.
At this time, we have "firm" commitments from 7 mod coupes with at least 4 more in the discussion phase. The return of several longtime Mod Coupe competitors is expected.
