After years of watching the racing surface of Indianapolis Raceway Park deteriorate to the point where the rough pavement destroyed seven of Arclight Suzuki's Performance Machine spun aluminum wheels at a cost of $4500 in 2000, WERA has moved the annual Cycle Jam to the beautifully renovated Virginia International Raceway facility. As in the case of previous Cycle Jams, the 4-hour G.M.D. Computrack National Endurance race will be held on Friday, June 15 with practice for all competitors on Thursday, June 14. Saturday will feature Sportsman Series regional races while Sunday will be reserved for National Challenge Series class finals. <BR><BR>The separation of regional Sportsman and National sprints allow racers chasing OEM contingency money to turn Cycle Jams into quite a nice payday. In the past, racers who won races on the right equipment have made upwards of $5000 for one weekend of racing. <BR>
