Evolution CupCar Series are Mini Cup Cars that are 1/2 scale stock cars built just like the Monster Energy Cup cars you see on TV. It is a class specifically designed for youth ages 9 to 16 who could be the next Kyle Busch or Danica Patrick. These race teams are different than Nascar as crew chief and crew are made up of family. Mom, dad, brother & sister these are families having fun at the race track. They are also out helping each other, if a car breaks you have other teams helping out to make sure no kid misses a race. With Mini CupCars & Baby Grand Cars the whole family can go racing & with this group that’s exactly what they are doing. This is one of my favorite oval classes, it is great to see these young people getting faster & improving their skill. If your kid wants to go racing this might be the right class for them with the specs being even racing & the safety of the cars.

Some great Rookies also came out of 2016: Evolution CupCar Series Car 71 Carrissa Elliot, Edmonton International Raceway Car 12 Rylyn Malone & Medicine Hat Speedway Car 20 Owen Harbour. Great job by Rylyn Malone getting a win in her 1st season & ended up in 4th place in the Edmonton International Raceway Championship.

Faith Addison of Lucky 7s Racing had an eventful season, she was in a big crash during the NASCAR Pinty’s Series weekend. When she was ready to return to racing she had her appendix taken out & missed another race. It is great to see someone so young with so much tenacity & determination. It is not surprising to find out she will be running in the Evolution CupCar Series & Baby Grand Canada Northwest Scaled Late Models Championships.
