Crane Cams V8 Series Racers tackle CMP

In 1998, a group of motorsports enthusiasts led by road racers Joe Hooker and Bob Humphreys acquired the property of the former Kershaw Airport. Located four miles south of the town of Kershaw. The airport was once an auxiliary airfield for the Army Air Corps in the late 1940's. The new owners quickly got construction underway of a new 2.3 mile club racing circuit and in 1999 Carolina Motorsports Park was born. The ownership group has continued to improve the race track over the years adding open air day garages for rent to competitors, timing and scoring building, tech shed, skid pad and more.

Since the V8 Series began in 2004, the group has scheduled a number of points races with the South Carolina Region SCCA at their Buck Muse Memorial races at CMP. Last year, Simon Gregg kick started his V8 GT-1 championship run with two wins at CMP.

With fourteen turn packed into 2.3 miles, CMP is a good test for the stock car and GT's of the series. The fastest cars can hit 160 plus mph down the back straight before braking for turn eleven.

Maybe the best competition of the weekend will be found in the V8 GTA class where former champ Randy Walker and his Howe Camaro will be tested by Charlotte North Carolina's Steve McGowan, Chapin, South Carolina's Bill Porter and Lancaster, South Carolina's Joe Hartsell. In V8 SPO look for Hilton Head Island's Tad Segars in his Kimrey Racing Pontiac Grand Prix to wage war with Grovetown, Georgia's Randy Gay. 2012 V8 GT2 winner Miles Barefoot will be back in his Porsche 911 and looks to be tough to beat. Barefoot's competition looks to come from Jerry Townson in his firebird, Tom Vlasak in his Mercury Capri and Bill Norton in a Mustang. Fresh from a fine second place finish at the Road Atlanta Major, young Dillon Machavern is scheduled to be on hand in the Heritage Motorsports Ford Falcon. Also expected are Bob Gomer in his Camaro, Mark Davis and his Camaro and Wayne Cabaniss in his C4 Corvette.

The Crane Cams V8 Series wishes to thank its' parterns for their support, and they are:
