ATI to sponsor MGR’s Stock-Super Stock Series
After a successful first season, Maple Grove Raceway’s Stock/Super Stock Series will be returning with a new sponsor: ATI Performance Products.
Featuring some of the best door-slammers from the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, the ATI Stock/Super Stock Series will once again feature a four-race schedule on June 8-9 and Aug. 24-25.
“ATI Performance Products and Maple Grove Raceway have been serving racers for over 50 years,” said J.C. Beattie Jr., chief operating officer for the Baltimore-based company. “Over the past half-century, ATI has always supported Maple Grove and its racers – especially in the Stock and Super Stock categories. ATI has always been dedicated to bracket racers and those racers are still an integral part to our continued success.
“The ‘Grove’ might be just under 100 miles away, but for ATI it has always been considered a home track! We are pleased to be a associated with Maple Grove and to support its faithful racers for another successful season of racing.”
A point system will be maintained and a points fund will be created paying the top five finishers in the series. Awards will be presented as part of the Money Trail Awards Banquet in February 2014. Points will be awarded based on the current Money Trail ET point structure.
The guaranteed purses and the entry fees for the series were also announced:
- $1,000 Winner
- $400 Runner up
- $200 Semifinalists
- $100 Quarterfinalists
Glen Hartzler won the 2012 championship in his 1972 Barracuda. Rounding out the top five were Byron Worner, James Perrone, Patric Fox, Marty Rinehart Jr. and Jeff Tripp. Rinehart and Tripp were tied for the fifth in points.
Entry fee to race is $75 for one day and $140 for both days on a weekend. There is also a $25 Money Trail membership fee. Crew and spectators are $15 per day, while children 12 and under are free.
