Speedway Motors is proud to partner with the Sports Car Club of America to present the Speedway Motors Classic American Muscle Invitational Challenge at the 2014 Tire Rack SCCA ProSolo Finale in Lincoln, Nebraska, Aug. 30-31.
The exciting new Classic American Muscle class is designed for all years of front-engine, rear-wheel-drive American muscle cars. Cars must be street legal, licensed and insured, have interiors, and use 200 tread wear street tires. There are no restrictions on engines and drivetrains.
The Classic American Muscle Invitational will bring the best of these modified muscle cars and drivers to Lincoln Airpark for an exciting competition based on the ProSolo format. ProSolo combines elements of autocross and drag racing, staging competitors side-by-side and using a drag race-style Christmas tree start before the racers enter mirror-image autocross courses.
The CAM Invitational list will include a who’s who of hot rod Soloists from across the country, all battling for prizes from Speedway Motors. The competition will take place Sunday, Aug. 31, between the class competition and Challenge rounds of the ProSolo event. Following course familiarization runs, drivers will be placed into a bracket and compete through elimination rounds until a Top Eliminator is crowned.
“Speedway Motors is thrilled to be a part of this exciting new SCCA event,” said Clay Smith, President of Speedway Motors. “This partnership bolsters Speedway’s growing presence in the performance muscle car market and is a perfect way for America’s Oldest Speed Shop to promote true American automotive performance.”
CAM Invitational drivers may also compete in the inaugural running of the CAM class at the Tire Rack SCCA Solo National Championships, held at the same location later in the week. CAM class runs will happen Sept. 2-3 and will follow SCCA CAM class rules. Invitations for both events will be sent by SCCA’s Raleigh Boreen in early August to drivers who have shown the potential for high-level competition through a variety of events across the country.
