Formula 600 Challenge Series Round #4 will be at Charlotte Motor Speedway and its newly reconfigured infield course on August 14-16. The drivers and crew are readying their cars and packing their trailers for the trip to CMS. The following ten drivers have committed to entering this race:

1. Craig Laprade, NovaKBS Banana Boat, Butler, GA
2. Ryan Barth, Wildcat, Sturgis, MI
3. Hunter Brayton, Wildcat Sturgis, MI
4. Aaron Ellis, Ellis AE13, Farmington, MN
5. George Fox, FDS 007, Athens, GA
6. Matt Strand, KBS Mk.8 FDS 002, Tequesta, FL
7. Carl Maier, Scorpion, Grand Prairie, TX
8. Sven de Vries, Maverick, Auburn, MI
9. Mo Makki, FDS 006, Dearbon, MI
10. Clint McMahan, Scorpion, Covington, GA

Rumor has it that the new paving on the infield course is slick, our drivers will soon find out.

We are very thankful for our sponsors who have made this series possible:

The Formula 600 Challenge series was developed to help promote an affordable open wheel formula car to showcase talent without large financial race budgets. The Formula 600 open wheel cars use a 600cc motorcycle engine and a 6 speed sequential transmission revving up to 15,000 rpm with speeds in excess of 135 mph. The sound of these cars is likened to F1 cars.
