New series at Champion

Champion Motor Speedway has announced the new "Sierra Mountain Super Series," presented by 76 Racing Fuel and the Plaza Hotel will make its debut this year.

The new series is the brainchild of Champion Motor Speedway General Manager Jeb Onweiler. The stock car show will feature Super Late Models from Champion Motor Speedway -- taking on the Pro Stocks from All American Speedway of Roseville, Calif.

"I called Rick Poppert at All American Speedway one day and told him about my idea," Onweiler said. "He agreed it would be a good deal for both racetracks.

"So I jotted down some ideas and presented it to Rick and Bill Dale, CEO of Placer County Fair, home of All American Speedway. We all saw a positive opportunity to work together and decided to give it a shot."

All American Speedway will host the series on April 19, July 12 and Aug. 30. The series will compete at Champion Motor Speedway on May 10, June 21 and Aug. 21. All events will feature 125-lap main events.

"Right now we have the Plaza Hotel in Carson City and 76 Racing Fuel supporting the series, but we hope to bring some more contingency and cash sponsors into the picture," Onweiler said.

"If things go as well as hoped for, we'll probably try to expand the series from six to 10 shows in 2004."
