CONCORD, NC - Officials at New Castle Motorsports Park, along with WKA, have finalized their national schedule for the Bridgestone Manufacturers Cup Series for the 2016 season, with 2 events for the 2 Cycle national series coming to the famed Indiana complex in the new year, along with a return of the RLV Tuned Exhaust Products Gold Cup Series as well. Keeping with their traditional mid summer date of July 15-17, the 3rd overall stop on the series, the July race again will fall 1 week prior to the SKUSA Summer Nationals, giving many competitors of the famed western series an additional opportunity for track time. The second stop to New Castle will also be of major importance, as it will mark the culmination in the battle for the national title September 23-25.
Other key dates for the series include an April 4-6 stop at Go Pro Motorplex in Mooresville, North Carolina, the second stop on the series, as well as another August rumble at Pittsburgh International Race Complex in Wampum, Pennsylvania August 19-21. That race will serve as the 4th of 5 events for the year on the series.
