ALEXANDRIA, VA (April 23, 2003) - Starting with the May 24 Rockford Speedway MMRA Touring Series race, Honda Engines will be the presenting sponsor of the MMRA's Future Stars of Racing division.  The $1000 cash portion of the purse for all these races is being provided by Honda Engines.  Honda Engines played a key role in helping MMRA get back on its feet last year with our single Nationals event, and this year their increased support is helping MMRA make minicup racing bigger and better than ever before.

Honda Engines power every single MMRA minicup car in the country, and competitors at every MMRA Touring Series event have enjoyed the support of Mountain Machine Service, a Honda Engines dealer.

"MMRA is super excited to have the support of Honda Engines again this year" stated MMRA President, Pete Neimeier.  "Honda Engines are reliable, inexpensive, and are a key reason the sport of minicup racing is within reach of the average American family" he continued.

The remaining MMRA Touring and Grand National events are as follows:

May 24 - Rockford Speedway, Illinois
June 7 - New River Valley Speedway, Virginia
July 25-27 - East Grand National, Lake Erie Speedway, Pennsylvania
August 9-10 - West Grand National, TBA

About MMRA:  The Miniature Motorsports Racing Association is the oldest and largest sanctioning body in the country for 1/2 scale stock cars known as minicups.   The association is made up of two main groups - the Future Stars of Racing and the Open Division. 

The Future Stars of Racing program is designed for young racers aged 8-16.  It provides the perfect "next step" for go-kart or quarter midget racers who dream of NASCAR stardom.  MMRA minicup racing gives these kids an opportunity to turn laps at the same short tracks where many of their heroes got their start.

The Open Division is a great place for the average fan to get out of the stands and into the action.  The cars cost about the same as a jet ski and are inexpensive and easy to maintain.  MMRA's strict rules make everyone compete on a level playing field where excessive money won't buy more speed.  If you've ever wanted to get into racing, minicups are the least expensive, safest way to start.
