Final Great Lakes Sprint Series Event of 2014 Set for New Castle Motorsports Park

Great season for GLSS to be capped off September 26 - 28

Great Lakes Sprint Series logoAfter a successful season to date, the Great Lakes Sprint Series (GLSS) is set close out their 2014 campaign at the ultra fast New Castle Motorsports Park (NCMP) facility in New Castle, Indiana. Set to take place September 26 – 28th, series participants will see increased track time to ensure they get the best bang for their buck at the final round. Also, throwing a different track layout in the mix, participants will close the series out running a new layout offered by the NCMP facility.

“We want to close out the 2014 season strong and end on a high note,” explained Series President Mike Tetreault. “We have had great success in 2014 and will make some minor changes for the final round that will keep the interest level high and the on track wheel-to-wheel action competitive with extended length finals and a different track layout.”

As always, Friday September 26th will see official event practice take place with Saturday and Sunday providing the grounds for a double race weekend. Both days will see a morning warm-up session followed by qualifying as per the normal daily schedule that has become accustomed to the GLSS. Due to the cancellation of rounds five and six over the Labor Day weekend and to ensure that all drivers get the necessary events to compete for WKA divisional transfer points, the New Castle round will see double finals on both Saturday and Sunday. Featuring two main events, both with extended laps that will put both driver and tuner to the challenge as they look to prepare their equipment in the best possible way to run at the front of the field. Final one will see competitors start where they qualify while final two will have drivers start from their final one finishing position with both finals counting towards full championship points.

Also, the GLSS will run the new layout that will be used by the WKA Manufactures Cup the following weekend that includes the new ‘Bus Stop’ complex of corners. Used to reduce the last lap draft and crash in the final corner, this will be a great opportunity in a low cost format for participants to come and test before the WKA Manufacturers Cup event.
