Tucson, Arizona - RC Whitwell and Charles Davis Jr. will take part in The Triple Crown Challenge this Saturday night at USA Raceway. Both drivers have entered into all three divisions making them eligible for the $1000 Triple Crown Bonus which consists of the Hornet Hustle and the Figure 8 Fury.
Whitwell will trade in his dominant Barnett Harley Davidson UMP West Modified for a trio of hot rods as he looks to take on the seasoned Hornet veterans and the Figure 8 aces. Whitwell is currently leading the UMP West Modified Championship chase and is a multiple time USA Raceway winner in SWDRA Late Model and UMP Modified action.
Sprint Car ace, "Chargin" Charles Davis Jr., will join Whitwell in team cars as both drivers will be looking to capitalize on the grand prize of $3000 for the covenant Triple Crown title. Davis currently leads the charge in the Discount Tire ASCS Canyon Region Championship race and also sits only 42 points from the lead in ASCS Southwest wing sprint car action.
The Super Star team will have a tough field of competition as they set out to take on top Hornet drivers led by point Leaders John Callans and Jason Miller. Anthony Madrid, 2008 UMP Modified Champion, leads the veterans of the Fair Figure 8 drivers as they look to dominate the USA outing.
The Hornets will have a shot at a big payday as they take to the big 3/8 mile track for the first time while the figure 8 cars will stand the ultimate test as they make circuits on the newly formed USA figure 8 track.
Two divisions of hornets will be competing in separate 50 lap races with a grand prize of $500 for each winner while the champion of the Figure 8 Fury will pocket $1000 for their efforts.
