Miniature Motorsports Racing Association Enrolls in Valvoline Cup Championship

 

ALEXANDRIA, VA (April 14, 2002) At just over 120 competitors, the Valvoline Cup Scaled Stock division will gain a boost from the participation of the Miniature Motorsports Racing Association (MMRA), offering yet another means for MMRA members to gain competition awards and prizes.

 

            Sanctioning ½ scale racing since 1995, MMRA has made its mark for landing minicup racing on the Speed Channel, and for sanctioning hundreds of races each year from Washington to Florida.  MMRA prides itself as a sanctioning body that reaches out to fans, allowing them to get out of the stands and into the action.  Costing about the same as a Jet Ski, a minicup racecar is a safe, simple, and affordable solution for any fan that wants to try their hand at driving.  MMRA members range in age from 10 to 72 years old, and compete on both asphalt and dirt tracks with their minicup and Cyclone Dirt Late Model machines. 

 

            “We are honored to participate in the Valvoline Cup, and to be associated with a company that has done so much for motorsports”, stated MMRA President Pete Neimeier.  “The combination of MMRA and Valvoline Cup means that virtually anyone can race to win a prestigious national championship.  I look forward to seeing our racers place well in the scaled stock division”.

           

The Valvoline Cup is only the latest evidence of Valvoline's support of grassroots racers. Valvoline is a contingency sponsor in NHRA drag racing and for the past six years has been the No. 1 choice of motor oil by NHRA sportsmen-class racers at NHRA pro events. For the past 17 years, Valvoline has sponsored the national championships for the Sports Car Club of America, The SCCA Valvoline Runoffs®.
