The 2017 Challenge Series will be composed of Major races and Hoosier Super Tours with a bucket list finale at the Indianapolis Run Offs.  There will be more on this schedule in the next press release.

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.
