Macon, Illinois-based Track Enterprises has purchased the Champion Racing Association (CRA), as announced by both organizations.
CRA—the Salem, Indiana-based sanctioning body—operates four touring divisions, including the ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by JEGS, the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour presented by Chevrolet Performance, Van Hoy Oil CRA Street Stocks Powered by JEGS, and the Vore’s CRA Late Model Sportsman Powered by JEGS.
Several key staffers will remain with CRA, including former co-owner and Series Director Glenn Luckett, Chief Technical Director Eddie Chew, and Director of Operations/Chief Scorer Greg Wood.
“Track Enterprises has race tracks and promotional agreements across the Midwest and Southeast encompassing over 80 events a year,” said Bob Sargent, owner of Track Enterprises. “This purchase is a natural extension of the work we already do with CRA, so we’ll be able to achieve some economies of scale with purchasing, staffing, sponsorship sales, and promotional efforts.
“Our goal is to bring more to the racers and the series’ race tracks, which will, in turn, bring more excitement to the fans. We’ve got some big plans for 2023 and beyond.”
