Man Cup, North America’s premier all motorcycle drag racing organization is proud to announce it has established the 4.60 Challenge, a unique race within a race at the World Finals.
Like the wildly popular Pingel Top Fuel World Cup and DME Racing All-Star Shootout specialty events already in place at the World Finals, the 4.60 Challenge is a Man Cup initiative dedicated this time to Sportsman’s quickest category.
“Our primary goal of the 4.60 Challenge is to crown a true national champion in 4.60 competition. This specialty event will be our first, of which I hope will become many, specialty competitions dedicated to Sportsman racers” beamed an elated Man Cup Principal Jay Regan. “Our Man Cup World Finals is already hands down the most spectacular motorcycle drag race of the season, and the addition of the 4.60 Challenge will certainly add to it being the very best event of the season, period.”
“The initial concept was born in the staging lanes of the 2017 Mann Hill Garage World Finals presented by Kibblewhite Precision Machine. Since then, a steady flow of dialogue, ideas, brainstorming and repeated trips back to the drawing board have got us to where we are thrilled with the final recipe,” stated Regan.
The inaugural 4.60 Challenge, debuting at the 2018 World Finals, will feature a unique team-based concept that will reward not only the overall winner but also the best performing team of the competition. The field will be made up of four teams of four. Invites will go out to top points earning riders in XDA, I-65, NHDRO, and Man Cup. A rider will be eligible to participate from whichever series he or she is highest in points and can only compete on one team. Spots on all four teams will be offered to points earners from first on down the line and will be filled once all four slots are taken.
“This will be a great event to showcase the incredible talents of sixteen very hard-working Sportsman racers. It will not only be a race for bragging rights for the overall winner, but also one where team, as well as I, will be the mantra. I expect a great showing of series partisanship and pride to be on tap.” concluded Regan. Stay tuned for the complete schedule, entry fee, purse, eliminations ladder and run schedule will be released in the very near future.
With the addition of the 4.60 Challenge, the 2018 edition of the Man Cup World Finals is assured to be bigger and better than ever. It is strongly suggested you make this the “must attend” event on your 2018 schedule.
