Following in the foot steps of the vaunted CARS vs. SARA Showdown in 2013, the two leagues are once again collaborating in a first of its kind event for the two on dirt. The Sim Auto Racing Association and the Can-Am Racing Series are proud to announce that signups are officially open for the inaugural CARS/SARA Mudsummer Meltdown!
The open-setup event will take place at the world renowned “Big E”, Eldora Speedway. Home of the Kings Royal, the World 100, and the Dream, Eldora is one of if not the most famous dirt track in the world. No other location could be as fitting to hold this remarkable iRacing event.
The action will kick off on Monday, August 28th, with the Street Stocks taking center stage as they set their times and attempt to qualify into the main event in a series of qualifying heats. The Dirt Pro Late Models roll into town on Tuesday for their first turn at practice, with qualifying heats on Wednesday. Then, the week culminates on Thursday, August 31st, as both feature events will take off under the lights for one of the biggest events in CARS and SARA history.
For this exclusive event, a wide array of prizes are set to be awarded. From a rather large Eagle-topped trophy to the winner of the Pro Late Models, to a pair of tickets to the Super Dirt Week finale in Oswego, New York, drivers will be vying for some pretty substantial loot. More prizes are being added to the pool every day, so keep your eye on the official prize list as it will surely keep growing!
As a result of such a substantial prize pool being assembled, a small $5 entry fee is required to participate in the Dirt Pro Late Model portion of the Mudsummer Meltdown. However, all participation in the Street Stock events is FREE!
The Mudsummer Meltdown is open to all SARA and CARS league members in good standing.
