THE OPTIMA BATTERIES / CHUMPCAR WORLD SERIES
What We're About
Welcome to the Optima Batteries / ChumpCar World Series! ! ChumpCar is North America's home for REAL, AFFORDABLE, COMPETITIVE endurance road racing. We're talking real racing, real tracks and real cheap cars! We're talking endurance races that range from 7-hours to 24-hours long... and, even longer! ChumpCar has the distinction of holding the longest closed-course endurance road race in North America... 25 hours, 25 minutes and 25 seconds - the 25:25:25. And, in 2013... 36 Hours!
So, why do we do this and who is this series for?
This series is for gear-heads; for people who love driving and driving fast. It's not about gimmicks or theatrics. Rather, it's for Chumps like you that have always wanted to go road racing without all the hassles or expense. It's about 'Joe Average' and almost-race-ready cars.
ChumpCar is a throw-back to the era when racing was fun and cheap... when Bondo beat carbon-fiber; when a crescent wrench was the most valuable tool in your box; when home-made engineering made everyone sit up and take notice; and when adding a little theme to your car didn't get you laughed off of pit lane.
Those were good times... and they're back.
