Briggs & Stratton 206 Cup – Concept Hauler Motor Speedway

206 Cup 2016 logo

The third Briggs & Stratton 20 Cup series weekend took place on July 14-15 at Concept Haulers Motor Speedway in Sheridan, IL. Concept Haulers was built in the mid-80s as a dirt oval track and within a few short years, it was turned in to a sven- tenths of a mile sprint track which has since hosted regional and national races. This weekend event included the introduction of the Friday Night Local Tire Shootout. In an effort to introduce more drivers to the series, the local series was invited to race using the local rule set. The winner of the local classes were given a set of Vega Red tires to use during this weekend’s races. In addition to this, a number of teams had been donating their previous weekends tires to new drivers to series and are encouraging teams with space in their trailers for an extra kart to bring a friend.

Briggs & Stratton Racing is the primary sponsor with Vega providing support and tires. Vega designed a new tire for the 2016 season specifically for 4-cycle racing with the guidance of the Cup, in order to provide a long lasting medium grip tire that is suitable for many styles of chassis. Presenting Sponsor Noram Clutch continues to support the series, and RLV Exhaust is now the qualifying sponsor for the series. Some of the folks from Target Distributing were on hand this weekend to hang out with the drivers, crew, and family.
