JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour & ICAR Top Speed Mods to highlight anticipated Michigan race Sunday, May 1st
Rochester Hills, Michigan (Monday, March 7, 2016): A traditional door opener in the state of Michigan was facing the possibility of not being conducted for the 2016 racing season when Springport Motor Speedway announced it would not be racing a full schedule for the upcoming year. The Cabin Fever 100 Presented by JEGS.com, traditionally the season opening event at the fast 3/8s (0.375) mile semi-banked paved oval, was in danger of not happening until Motor City Racing Promotions President Scott Menlen stepped in.
Under the helm of Motor City Racing Promotions (MCRP), the 2016 Cabin Fever Weekend will return to the track located north of Jackson and south of Lansing on Saturday, April 30-May 1st. The JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by Chevrolet Performance kicks off their sixth season of competition as the headliner of the Cabin Fever 100. The premier template body / crate motor series in the country will go 100 laps on Sunday afternoon, May 1st.
“Jeff and Pam Parish, along with their entire team, had done an amazing job building the Cabin Fever event at Springport Motor Speedway over the past few years.” offered MCRP’s Scott Menlen. “We are thankful for the opportunity facility owner (and Spartan Speedway Promoter), Jim Leasure has provided us with. We look forward to continuing this great event for fans across the region to enjoy.” Menlen added.
2015 JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Champion, Dalton Armstrong went to victory lane one year ago on his way to the championship while current NASCAR K&N Pro Series East star, Justin Haley scored his first career win in a Late Model in the 2014 version of the event.
