Super Class World Series Championship at The Strip cancelled

 

Officials of National Bracket Racing Productions (NBRP)and The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway announced today the Super Class World Series Championships event scheduled for February 18-20, 2005 at The Strip at LVMS has been cancelled.  The event, which was a partnership between NBRP and LVMS, fell short of minimum event entry guidelines.

¿Despite an extensive promotional effort at season-ending events in 2004 and a direct-mail campaign to more than 8,000 Super Comp and Super Gas racers, we aren¿t close enough to our minimum car count requirements to continue with the promotion and production of this event,¿ said NBRP¿s A.J. Ashe. ¿We would like to thank the teams that did pre-enter for their support and belief in our efforts to provide a new alternative for Super Class drag racers.¿

Officials at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway were equally disappointed in the cancellation of the event.

¿Our primary objective is to provide west coast sportsman racers with the most exciting and highest-paying races available anywhere,¿ said Chris Blair, LVMS¿ senior director of drag racing operations.  ¿When we initially scheduled this event, we honestly felt we were providing the teams with the race they had always dreamed of.  A dedicated group of racers immediately responded and shared our enthusiasm and belief in this race.  Unfortunately, there just weren¿t enough of those racers in the western U.S. to support an event of this magnitude.¿

            NBRP Inc. is currently in the process of returning entries to the racers who pre-registered for the event.  National Bracket Racing Productions, Inc. will announce the date and location of an east-coast version of the Super Class World Championships later this week.
