Evolution Cupcar Series 2017 Fall Update

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.

It was another exciting season of Evolution Cupcar Series racing at 3 Race tracks, Edmonton International Raceway EIR, Medicine Hat Speedway & Hythe Motor Speedway. 22 Scheduled races with 4 Championships: Evolution Cupcar Series, Edmonton International Raceway EIR, Medicine Hat Speedway & Hythe Motor Speedway. There is one more weekend of racing that we are hopping the weather holds off long enough to get the last weekend in at Edmonton International Raceway EIR on Sept 30 & Oct 1. This is your chance to see these young racers race with great skill at such a young age fighting for the last championship.

So I had a question asked of me a few weekends back about who the track record holders are at each track that we have run. I do keep a number of stats on the kids and how they have done over the years (2010 – 2017), so here are the top 10 QUALIFYING TIMES at each facility we have visited.
