Highlights of round three of the Gold Cup include Friday night’s MotoOption Thunder Series, which includes a 10-lap Shootout for Sportsman and Junior Pro Gas Animal and the big Animal Heavy Money Race, which is boosted by a $500 purse for the Pro Gas Animal entrants on top of the regular 75 percent payback.

Sportsman Pro Gas has been one of the most well-attended classes at the opening rounds of the 2013 Gold Cup. The division looks to have strong fields again at Camden. Sportsman Pro Gas racers are vying for the class championship which awards a brand-new Margay, Coyote OR Razor chassis to the champion. Matthew Miller is the current points leader by a slim 10-point margin over Dylan Murry.

And the Senior Pro Gas division will continue to gain strength at Camden as pre-entries for the class roll in to the WKA office. For the first time the class will include a purse at Camden. A $1,000 purse has been added with $500 going to the weekend’s overall winner.
