RACERSITES has partnered with Mooresville Motorplex (MMX) as the title sponsor of a five-week points championship, the RACERSITES Cup, with the inaugural event scheduled for March 13.
A leading provider of website design, development and management services for clients in motorsports industries, RACERSITES will provide Web-based live timing and scoring features on the official website of the MMX, www.mooresvillemotorplex.com. LapTrax, a RACERSITES proprietary product, retrieves data directly from the official timekeeping software at the racing facility and delivers it to website visitors in real time. The application was developed to cater to as wide an audience as possible, and can be accessed via smart phones and mobile devices. Not only can competitors follow the action on their mobile devices at the track, racing enthusiasts can follow the excitement from home.
In addition to the MMX prize structure, the Davidson, N.C.-based company will grant contingency awards each week to qualified entrants, with the grand prize of a FASTRAX website (valued at $2,500) to be awarded at the series finale.
"I am thrilled about the relationship that RACERSITES has with MMX, and we are proud to sponsor the RACERSITES Cup," said Chuck Tate, Owner and CEO of RACERSITES. "I have a tremendous amount of respect for Justin Marks. His hard work, dedication and attention to detail have resulted in one of the most beautiful and competitive kart tracks that I've ever seen. Karting is a hobby and passion of mine, so this partnership is exciting both professionally and personally."
The RACERSITES Cup will run every Wednesday night for five consecutive weeks, beginning on March 13 and featuring TaG Senior and TaG Masters classes, in addition to a Lite and Heavy class of rental kart racing using the MMX fleet of Sodikart RT8 390cc karts. Champions in each class will be crowned at the completion of the series on April 10. Each weekly segment of the RACERSITES Cup will consist of two practice sessions, a qualifying session and feature race under the lights for each class.
