Sodus, NY - As planning for the 2000 Central New York Mini Sprint (CNYMS) season shifts into high gear, several sponsors have been signed for the Dow Corning/Kaman Industrial Technologies CVRA Mini Sprint Challenge Cup. The CVRA Challenge Cup, organized and co-promoted by Bruce Richards, CVRA, and Fred Kaempffe, Branich Motorsports, is a special "tour within the CNYMS tour," and will feature 3 mini sprint races at CVRA tracks. The Challenge Cup will feature higher than normal CNYMS purses, a series point fund, and contingency prizes and awards. The series is co-sponsored by Dow Corning and Kaman. Both companies sponsored the successful Mini Sprint Six Gun Shootout in 1999, and with their sponsorship of the Challenge Cup, have renewed their commitment to mini sprint racing in the Northeast. The Challenge Cup will open up Sunday, May 28th, at the Devil's Bowl, in Fair Haven, VT. While negotiations are still underway for a race sponsor, several contingency sponsors have already been signed. Speedway Advertising, LLC, of Hookset, NH, will provide a cash bonus to the driver leading the most laps in the mini sprint feature. Weld Wheels, of Kansas City, MO, will provide a gift certificate to the race "Hard Charger." Seymour Enterprises, of Massachusetts, will provide a gift certificate to the feature winner, as is the case with all CNYMS races this season. On June 9th the series will travel to Albany-Saratoga Speedway. Carriage Traders, South Glens Falls, NY, will sponsor the mini sprint feature. Carriage Traders is a diversified auto business, including wholesale and retail operations. The feature winner will take home $650 in purse money. Drivers will receive a minimum of $75 to take the green flag in the feature. Speedway Advertising will again pay cash to the driver leading the most laps in the feature, and Weld and Seymour will again provide gift certificates, as they will also do in the last race of the series. The Challenge Cup finale will be held at Albany-Saratoga on July 28th. This time, Speedway Advertising will increase their contingency cash award. Some businesses have expressed interest in race night sponsorship, but no deals have been inked yet. Bicknell Racing Products and Hoosier will provide product for a series contingency award, to supplement the cash put up by Dow and Kaman. The series is sanctioned by CNYMS, Inc., and CNYMS rules apply to all race events, including a maximum engine size of 1204 cc's. 750 cc mini sprints are also invited to compete, and bonuses will be paid to at least the top finishing 750 cc machine in each feature race.
