Super Late Models to Run in Six-Race Series at Berlin in 2011
Premier Boyne Machine Super Lates to Feature CRA Rules
Track PR Report
Berlin Raceway is pleased to announce the formation of a brand new template bodied racing series that will compete multiple times beginning in the 2011 race season. The startup series, formed by Berlin Raceway track owner Michael Blackmer will compete in Marne, Michigan six times over the course of the tracks 61st season of competition.
The new group of template cars will be named the 'Premier Boyne Machine Super Lates' featuring a rule book exactly like the CRA Super Series cars use on their traveling tour. The idea will be to offer Midwest based teams the opportunity to compete when they otherwise would just be sitting in their garages. The only difference in rules will be a 50lb weight break for crate motor cars.
"I am pretty pumped up about this new series being formed for next year at Berlin," said Michael Blackmer. "We really hope to bring on board up to two other area tracks that will host races as well to form a very nice little series."
The Premier Boyne Machine Super Lates will race for the first time in early May, and will have a point's championship with $2,000-to-win each event. The schedule which will span over the entire race season will not compete on the same day as any of the CRA Super Series events and not conflict with their races.
"CRA and I have always had an excellent working relationship together and in no way will we interfere with what they are doing. In fact we hope to produce a few new cars that will race with the series and graduate into CRA throughout the year and into the future."
With negotiations ongoing over the details of the series and its competing dates, as well as the CRA Super Series schedule yet to be announced, the full schedule will be announced in the coming weeks.
