Chico, CA (Aug 10, 2021) …. The 67th Gold Cup Race of Champions is right around the corner. Four nights of intense dirt track racing to go along with plenty of daytime and nighttime activities is the foundation of what this event offers to so many loyal fans. Things kick off Wednesday night, September 8th, and conclude on Saturday night, September 11th.
At the forefront is the return of the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Sprint Car Series on Friday and Saturday nights, Sept 10th, and 11th. Led by two-time and current point leader, Brad Sweet of nearby Grass Valley, the series makes its return after a year hiatus from California. However, there is a ‘Wild Child’ on the loose that many of the longtime Gold Cup fans can’t wait to watch for the final time. Wooster, OH Sprint Car Hall of Fame driver and three-time Gold Cup Champion Jac Haudenschild will make his final Gold Cup. Haudenschild, 63-years old, announced early in 2021 that this year, his 48th consecutive season as a driver, was his final one.
