First American Racer Cup Tire Giveaway of 2018 Set For Jan. 21 During Motorsports Show; Registration Open

MILLSBORO, DE – The first ‘pre-season’ tire giveaway for the American Racer Cup presented by Sunoco is fast approaching.

The $50,000-plus American Racer Cup is set for its ninth season in 2018, once again rewarding weekly Modified and Sportsman racers at home tracks across New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware.

Aside from the huge cash payout, tire giveaways are a key part of the Cup program.

The first of two ‘pre-season’ giveaways is scheduled for the Motorsports 2018 Race Car & Trade Show in Oaks, Pa., with a drawing on Sunday (Jan. 21) of the three-day show.

Both the Modifieds and Sportsman registered for the ’18 Cup at that point will be eligible. One FREE tire will be given away via a random draw to each division. Once again, the draw will be shown on Facebook Live and drivers will not need to be present to win.

2018 registration forms have been posted on the American Racer Cup website:

The second giveaway prior to the start of the regular season takes place on March 17. It will be held at the drivers’ meeting prior to the start of the Melvin L. Joseph Memorial at Georgetown (Del.) Speedway. Again, drivers need not be present to win.

At the March 17 giveaway, registered Modified drivers will have the opportunity to win four FREE American Racer tires. Sportsman drivers will have four $85 certificates available.

American Racer Cup management has begun the distribution of ’17 point fund checks. All drivers will be paid by the Motorsports Show in January. Year-end tire certificates have been mailed.

The American Racer Cup website has been overhauled detailing 2018 information and can be found on the web at
