American Super Cup Series set to race at Tomah Sparta Raceway
The July 3rd race show at Tomah Sparta Raceway will include the regular tracks series, fireworks and now the American Super Cup Series (ASCS). American Super Cup Series was originally established in 1997 where it joined with the Mini Cup / Miniature Motorsports series. In 2010 the group of racers broke ranks and began racing as the American Super Cup Series.
These unique ½ scale race cars can be seen at tracks around Wisconsin and Illinois such as Slinger Super Speedway, Dells Raceway Park, Jefferson Speedway, Rockford Speedway and now Tomah Sparta Raceway. Don’t judge these small cars that are fashioned with body styles the likes of Impala, Camry, Fusion and Charger. They may be small in size but, they are big on speed. The Honda GX390 cars with their 4 stroke, OHV single cylinder 390cc sealed motor is capable of top speeds of 100mph. On most tracks the cars can reach speeds of 75 to 85 mph. Mick Ellis of the ASCS explains, “We are very proud of our product. We have a good core of drivers… Most races are a very good show with close races.”
