ERIE, MI (February 21, 2018) – Engine Pro Sprints On Dirt presented by ARP is proud to announce that COMP Cams will be a primary heat race sponsor partner for the 2018 season.

COMP Cams’ partnership allows Engine Pro Sprints On Dirt presented by ARP to pay its competitors for winning heat races, something not very common in sprint car racing. SOD racers appreciate the opportunity to be rewarded for top performance in preliminary races, not just feature events.

For more than 35 years, the COMP Cams mission has never changed: to produce the highest-performing products possible, provide customers with superior service, and to lead the industry in technological development. While the COMP Performance Group has grown to multiple companies and hundreds of employees, COMP Cams still retains the competitive spirit and desire to be the very best that has positioned it as the absolute leader in valve train components. COMP Cams works with the best teams in sprint car racing and fits perfectly as a partner with SOD.

Engine Pro Sprints On Dirt presented by ARP appreciates its long partnership with COMP Cams and works tirelessly to keep the COMP Cams name out front. For more information about COMP Cams, go to www.compcams.com.

ERIE, MI (February 9, 2018) – Engine Pro Sprints On Dirt presented by ARP Dirt will make a much-anticipated return to Berlin Raceway on Saturday, September 29th.

Last year, Berlin Raceway hosted the SOD season finale, the COMP Cams Great Lakes Sprint Car Classic.  Republic, Ohio’s Cap Henry drove his Lane Racing #4 to the win over Ryan Ruhl and Jordan Ryan before a huge, enthusiastic crowd.

This year’s race will once again bring the curtain down on the SOD 2018 season and will be its fourth race at the storied raceway.  Besides last year’s event, SOD also raced at Berlin in 2013 and 2014.

Berlin Raceway, renown and respected in the pavement racing world, has proven that it has mastered the challenge of creating a temporary dirt track; last year’s surface produced competitive racing, withstanding the assault of a large field of sprint cars, late models, and modifieds.  SOD has used its “beyond limits” format to become the most recognized and respected regional sprint car series anywhere.  Together, the two oval track leaders promise to make this year’s race an event fans won’t want to miss.

ERIE, MI (February 7, 2018) – Lane Automotive and MSD Ignition have announced their return as the Engine Pro Sprints On Dirt presented by ARP Fast Master Award sponsors for 2018.

The popular award program was initiated last year by SOD.  Track conditions typically determine when fastest qualifying times are achieved, so in an effort to “spread the wealth”, SOD decided to pay the fastest qualifier in each heat race instead of just the overall fast qualifier.  Lane Automotive and MSD Ignition have teamed up to recognize these speedsters once again.

Lane Automotive is an amazing speed equipment industry phenomenon comprised of four separate divisions including Motor State Distributing, Allstar Performance, Lane Collectables, and the Lane Automotive Showroom.  Lane Automotive is known the world over as a premier supplier of performance parts and accessories for racers, hot rodders, truck and off-road enthusiasts.  Founded in 1964 by George Lane, the company serves customers around the world from its ultra-modern 275,000-square-foot distribution center and office complex in Watervliet, Michigan.  Visit www.laneautomotive.com to get to know Lane Automotive.

MSD, founded forty-eight years ago, is recognized as a leading name in ignition system products, EFI products and high performance parts. MSD designs, develops, tests and assembles its entire line of ignition boxes, crank triggers, distributors, EFI systems, transmission controllers, spark plugs, coils, spark plug wires, and other performance parts from its 150,000+ square feet headquarters in El Paso, Texas, where it employs over 400 people.  Read more about MSD at www.msdperformance.com.

ERIE, MI (February 3, 2018) – Engine Pro Sprints on Dirt presented by ARP is pleased to announce that the popular MAHLE/Clevite Beyond Limits Challenge is once again on the SOD schedule for 2018.

The challenge, known as the Short Track Challenge before 2016, was the first SOD mini-series and has been a fan favorite since its inception. It offers drivers the opportunity to compete in a mini-championship within the full Sprints on Dirt series for an additional, separate point fund.

The 2018 MAHLE/Clevite Beyond Limits Challenge will consist of five races; the dates and tracks for each race of this exciting mini-series will be announced later.

The BLC point fund will be paid out to the top five finishers at the 2018 Sprints On Dirt Awards Banquet. In addition, the MAHLE/Clevite Beyond Limits Challenge champion will be guaranteed a starting spot in the Mike Olrich Memorial Race at Crystal Motor Speedway on September 1st.

MAHLE Original is the “Global Star” within the MAHLE Aftermarket brand portfolio. The brand MAHLE stands for engine parts, filters, thermo management and mechatronics of uncompromising quality – in original equipment and aftermarket.

Clevite is an American brand with one of the oldest pedigrees and supplies pistons, assemblies, cylinder liners, bearings and valves for American commercial vehicles as well as construction and agricultural equipment applications.

Competitors may debate who is the best on the track, but under the hood, there is no debate that Clevite and MAHLE are the one constant of winning teams throughout American grass roots racing.
