SALEM, Ind. – Champion Racing Association Powered by JEGS officials have released the schedule for the Victory Custom Trailers CRA Junior Late Models’ second season.

The Victory Custom Trailers CRA Junior Late Models launched this year to focus on a youth movement for short track stock car racing that saw 10 to 15-year-old drivers compete amongst themselves for both experience and recognition in full size late models with an economical drive train and suspension alternatives.

Some of the key components for the rule package for the Victory Custom Trailers CRA Junior Late Models will be the mandated use of the $3,900 factory sealed Chevrolet Performance 602 crate engine. Teams will also be utilizing less expensive rear ends, transmissions and springs and spec KONI Shocks. The series will also be racing on 8-inch steel wheels and utilizing 8-inch Hoosier Racing tires. The series competed on three-eighths-mile and under race tracks with most events consisting of eight-lap heat races and a 25-lap feature.

The series’ first event of the season will take place at Flat Rock Speedway in Flat Rock, Michigan on Saturday, April 25. The racy quarter mile will also host the JEGS/CRA All Stars Tour Presented by Chevrolet Performance season opener on that same day.
