Last season Blockworks rewarded the CMRA's Top Amateur and Expert competitors with a trip to Daytona for the 19th Annual Race of Champions. The prize included transportation to Daytona and Blockworks-sponsored entries into the Race of Champions for the lucky riders involved.

LRRS competitors must score a minimum of 150 points in those classes. Then by combining performance indexes from all CCS regions, the rider with the highest performance index in the overall rankings on August 3, 2003 will be declared the winner.

In case of a tie on performance index, the rider with the higher point total will be declared the winner. Blockworks president Eric Kelcher commented that he "had enjoyed his races and the competition at the Daytona Race of Champions." Adding: "I know that Daytona is the necessary route for any new, up-and-coming racer who plans on becoming a professional, and we just want to be a part of their experience."<BR><BR>There are three simple steps to claim the prize from Blockworks: First riders must race CCS or CCS affiliate's events (affiliates produce events in Northeast, Texas, or Florida regions).

Kelcher commented: "We hope that through this promotion, we enable the top riders to concentrate on making the most of their season, and proving to the rest of the country ‘what they are made of', versus the best riders in the country.
