The 2010 Crap-Can racing season began last weekend with the ChumpCar World Series event at Infineon Raceway. Two seven hour enduros were held for $500 cars to do battle on the world famous racing course. Many motors were harmed during the event (what do you expect for $500?) but fun was had by all who attended (even those who did three motor swaps). The racing was very close both days with less than thirty seconds separating some of the podium finishers. The next ChumpCar event will be a true 24 hour race held at Willow Springs in Southern California on January 30th and 31st.
