TROPHYLITE Gears Up For Round One
Heber, California (February 12, 2008) After months of anticipation, the inaugural KMC Wheels TROPHYLITE Series Presented by KC HiLiTES is set to begin at the SNORE Battle of Primm this weekend February 15-17. TROPHYLITE competitors will compete in hopes for a shot at the title of being the first ever TROPHYLITE race winner.
The SNORE Battle of Primm will utilize a two day race format with one race being run on Saturday and one on Sunday. TROPHYLITE competitors will start each race at 9:35 AM and battle for four laps around a 13 mile course. Times from both races will be combined to determine an overall winner. With a guaranteed purse of $7,125.00 for TROPHYLITE teams alone, the competition promises to be fierce.
