With their participation in the Valvoline Cup, MACS has raised the bar of competition, as drivers at weekly tracks will be chasing late model stars such as Todd Andrews, Bob Close, Lynn Geisler, Scott Haus, Tom Myers, and 2001 series champion Mike Blose, just to name a few. MACS drivers will be credited for all their Dirt Late Model exploits, in addition to MACS series races, as many also compete at weekly venues, and in various large invitational events.
