From Mike Strevel

The Engine Pro ASCS Sprints on Dirt Presented by ARP is excited to announce that the MAHLE/Clevite Short Track Challenge is back again for 2012.

The challenge will consist of a total of eight races that drivers will be able to earn extra winnings as they compete in these select events. This point fund is an addition to the standard race purse each event pays out and the season long championship point fund that Engine Pro and ARP support as title sponsors.

The Short Track Challenge will be held at eight different Michigan speedways giving race fans the opportunity to see the best winged sprint car drivers in the state do battle for this championship race within the championship chase. The events that will be a part of this exciting chase will be on the following dates: Saturday June 2 Cherry Raceway, June 29 Mt. Pleasant Speedway, June 30 Merritt Raceway, July 7 Owendale Speedway, August 3 Tri City Motor Speedway, August 31 Winston Speedway, September 1 Crystal Motor Speedway and September 27 at Mid-Michigan Raceway Park.

If all eight events are completed the driver earning the most points will be awarded a $1,000 payment as the winner of the MAHLE/Clevite Short Track Challenge. Point fund monies will be available for the top ten in the 2012 MAHLE/Clevite Short Track Challenge.
