CONCORD, NC - Competitors gearing up for a new season for the RLV Tuned Exhaust Products Gold Cup Series can now view the entry info for the series 1st event of the 2017 season. The Southeast Showdown, slated for March 24-26 at 103rd Street Sports Complex in Jacksonville, Florida, will be yet another busy weekend, as competitors from the 2016 season will also be honored Friday evening following practice in the 2016 Awards presentation, with merchandise from RLV, Bridgestone, Briggs & Stratton, and much more to be handed out to the 2016 champions, as well as top finishers in their respective classes.

10 classes will make up the 2017 season for the National 4 Cycle Series, with the format very similar in 2017. Competitors will be running qualifying, a heat race, and final each day. However, awards will be given out on the final day only to the highest overall finisher in each respective class, with the top 3 receiving awards. The LO206 and 2 Cycle Kid Kart Classes, which will be combined, will run for a separate award for the winner over the weekend, with participation medals going to the balance of drivers in each engine category. The Kid Kart Classes will not be national points classes in 2017.
