SCCA RallyCross National Challenge Makes Debut in Michigan This Weekend

TOPEKA, Kan. (June 1, 2006) -- Dozens of dormant monsters will wake this weekend in Fowlerville, Mich., unleashing guttural cries and ripping extra folds into the Earth's already wrinkled brow.

They will spew dirt toward the heavens and immerse themselves in billowing clouds of thick dust. Or, should it rain, have the chance to partake of the motorsports version of a mud bath.

All in the name of speed. Well, that and winning the first SCCA RallyCross National Challenge event of 2006, which is set for this weekend at the Fowlerville Fairgrounds.

The first of five RallyCross National Challenge (RXNC) events this season, all eyes will be upon the Fairgrounds' dirt oval track, bearing witness to the RXNC's highly-anticipated official debut, which comes after a single, successful prototype event in 2005.

"We are ready to go. It's time to get the RallyCross National Challenge off the ground," SCCA Vice President of Competition Programs Howard Duncan said. "Every race weekend is exciting, but I think it goes up a notch when it is a situation like this. Everybody, from officials, to drivers, to workers, is anxious to get out there and watch topflight SCCA RallyCross competition.

"The event is in the very capable hands of Detroit Region, and because of the Region's high enthusiasm for these types of events, we expect that it is going to be a great show."

The RXNC field will be capped at 100 entries overall and separated into eight classes. Each class will name a winner Sunday afternoon.
