SRT Viper Cup Series Visits Road America This Weekend

May 11, 2012

Road America (Elkhart Lake, Wis.) hosts the second stop of racing for the SRT Viper Cup Series presented by Pennzoil Ultra this weekend.

The series visits five road courses this season with each venue hosting two races featuring the 2010 Dodge Viper ACR-X – the special-edition model of America’s ultimate sports car.  The series, formerly the Dodge Viper Cup Series, is entering its third year of competition.

Ben Keating, the defending SRT Viper Cup Series champion, kicked off the season with two wins at the previous race at Road Atlanta. Unfortunately, Keating was assed a 32-point penalty at Road Atlanta for “avoidable contact” and heads to Road America trailing current points leader, Dave Pintaric.

The Road America weekend includes two timed races; a 25-minute event on Saturday and a 40-minute race on Sunday.  Teams qualify for starting spots in Saturday’s event, but qualifying has been eliminated on Sunday. Instead, the fields are set in reverse order of the finish from the previous day.

“The SRT Viper Cup Series offers a fantastic way for road-racing enthusiasts to compete in our ultimate American sports car,” said Ralph Gilles – President and CEO, SRT and Motorsports, Chrysler Group LLC.  “The 2010 Dodge Viper ACR-X is designed and built specifically for the race track by taking all the performance attributes of Viper to an even higher level for a wide range of drivers starting with the grassroots racer all the way up to the professional.”
