Through a point battle during the South Central Division’s 2013 season and a year-end Wild Card drawing the field has been set for the annual NHRA Division 4 Moser Sportsman Shootout to be held Saturday, March 22 at the upcoming JEGS NHRA Cajun SPORTSnationals at No Problem Raceway, March 21-23. The event presents a unique match of NHRA sportsman racers in Super Stock, Stock, Super Comp, Super Gas, Super Street, Top Dragster and Top Sportsman in head-to-head competition to see – who really is the best of the best.
The Father-Son team of Larry and Slate Cummings lead an allstar group of racers that have qualified for the special race that also includes former NHRA Lucas Oil World Champions Jeff Lopez and Jimmy Lewis. Luck would have it that the Cummings will face off in the round 1 Super Stock pairing while Lopez and Lewis will battle in round one of Super Gas.
The Moser Sportsman Shootout is unique in that racers from the seven entirely different class structures will be racing each other. Eliminations will be in a dial-in/breakout handicap format on an eighth-mile.
A $15,000 cash purse is up for grabs with $5,000 to the winner, $2,000 to the runner-up, $1,000 to each of the semi-finalists, $700 to the quarter-finalists and $400 to each of the remaining event qualifiers.
To be eligible for full posted purse qualifier must run the NHRA Moser Engineering Sportsman program decal and Moser Engineering axles and display the Moser Engineering product decal during the Sportsman Shootout Event.
