SUWANEE, Ga. — Cheng Shin Rubber Co. Ltd./Maxxis International will sponsor the stage races of the ChumpCar World Series, a racing series geared to weekend racers and amateurs who dream of turning professional.
As a non-profit, ChumpCar stages races that are team-based endurance events, so drivers face fewer budgetary obstacles than in other, profit-based series, according to Maxxis. The circuit has held more than 200 events since it was founded in 2009.
Maxxis, the official tire of the series, will award first-place drivers four free tires, while second-place racers will win three free tires, and third, fourth and fifth-place drivers will win two free tires each.
"We've long supported grassroots racing across a range of sports, so Maxxis is delighted to sponsor this series, which allows average drivers to get the thrill of racing and wheel-to-wheel competition," Ritche Tay, a senior marketing coordinator with Maxxis, said.
