Last season, the new X275 class exploded in popularity across the East coast at tracks and organizations such as Virginia Motorsports Park, Maryland International Raceway, Piedmont Dragway in North Carolina, and the Pritchett Brothers’ Ultimate Outlaws Series. Despite the use of the very same rules and guidelines and participation by many of the same faces, each venue more or less ran it’s own deal. And so at the end of the season, multiple different X275 champions were crowned.
In 2011, X275 will grow twofold with at least ten different venues contesting the category, plus the NMRA and NMCA running similar formats. Each said venue will once again host their own schedule of events, but in an effort to crown a true and singular champion of X275 separate of their home tracks, series founder John Sears and the folks at TCI Automotive have formed the TCI Pro-X King of X275 Challenge.
The TCI Pro-X King of X275 Challenge will take place during the fall ORTC race at South Georgia Motorsports Park, and will pit the points champions and victors of several key standalone events against one another in a winner-take-all showdown for the X275 crown and a TCI Pro-X torque converter. The race will use a 16-car ladder, with 16 different champions possible. If anyone doubles up on race wins or track championships, a spoiler will be voted into the lineup to keep the race at 16 cars. the events/series being included are listed below.
