    ChumpCar is North America's home for REAL, AFFORDABLE, COMPETITIVE endurance road racing. We're talking real racing, real tracks and real cheap cars! We're talking endurance races that range from 7-hours to 24-hours long... and, even longer!

    This series is for gear-heads; for people who love driving and driving fast. It's not about gimmicks or theatrics. Rather, it's for Chumps like you that have always wanted to go road racing without all the hassles or expense. It's about 'Joe Average' and almost-race-ready cars.

    ChumpCar racing is 'straight-up cheap fun'

    DAYTONA BEACH — The billiard ball on the shifter of the Lincoln Town Car is no big deal, really, but in its own way, it symbolizes what this type of auto racing is all about. "It's the 14 ball, the only spare ball they had at the bar."
    The wide variety of cars – old Mustangs, VW Beetles and Rabbits, Jaguars, Monte Carlos, etc. – have to meet one initial standard: Each must be of the make, model and condition that could be had for no more than $500 on the open market.




    unofficial results: Winners covered 297 laps on the 3.56 mile road course. That's a long day. 1057 miles. 123 cars entered.

    This is a fun thing to do with a handful of friends if you want to drive on some bigtime tracks like Daytona, V.I.R., Road Atlanta, Watkins Glen, and many more. The series is divided into regions so you can race without hauling cross country if you choose not to.

    Thought this was going to be a revival of Champ Cars. Along with the Can-Am series, possibly the most savage cars ever driven.
