    The original date hoped for this event has a conflict. Efforts are underway to secure a new one at present. Watch this thread or GMPs website or FaceBook Page, or ChumpCars website for updates. Keep your fingers crossed for this unique and fun event!

    A NEW DATE HAS BEEN SECURED! June 30 - July 1 is ChumpCar Weekend at GMP. $500 race cars (not including safety equipment) will take to GMPs Road Course for some endurance racing. Format hasn't been set just yet but the usual scenarios are a single 14 hour, or two 7 hour races (scored as 1 event). Always full of interesting and competitive cars, it's almost as much fun watching as it is driving. Note it on your calender, or better yet check out the website and put your own team together!

    Just 3 weeks away from a very unique race event, 2 - 7 hour endurance races for $500 race cars! June 30 - July 1 on the Road Course at Gateway.

    Named the fastest growing motorsports series and recipient of Grassroots Motorsports magazine’s "Editor’s Choice / Best Road Racing Series," the ChumpCar World Series® is a North American road racing Enduro Series (endurance races), with events ranging from 14- to 25-hours in length for production sportscar, touring and sedan vehicles. The twist? All cars in the race must be valued at less than $500. Of course, another $1,500-$2,000 of safety equipment and modifications must be made to the cars before they can compete in any ChumpCar race, but the finished product is a fun-filled, low-cost race car that doesn’t have any real advantage over any other car in the field. The series stresses a casual weekend of racing, with a focus on returning road course racing to the era of the 1950’s and 1960’s, when camaraderie, sportsmanship and racing for pure enjoyment was far more important than cut-throat competition and the usual high cost of motorsports realized in so many series today. An entry-level sportscar built for racing today can easily exceed a $30,000 investment. However, in this series, everyone is "…just another chump."

    Do you have what it takes, to SPECTATE?? Auto racing isn't often thought of as an extreme sport, but it will be this weekend - even for those who just want to watch!!

    Has your circle track race been canceled?? The heat has affected the ChumpCar Races too. Green Flag has been moved up to 7:30 AM - STILL 7 HOUR ENDUROs both days, CHECKERS at 2:30 PM!

    RESULTS >> After 7 hours of racing, 285 laps, ~470 miles; local team EggBoy takes the win at Gateway Motorsports Park - by 13.6 seconds! Congrats!! and Thanks to ChumpCar for moving up the start time by a hour and a half to avoid the worst of the heat. And in 8 hours we will be back to do it all over again. Sorry if your circle track racing got "heated out" this weekend. :)) https://www.facebook.com/​EggBoyRacing
