Man Cup Invites Pro Street FIM Racers to the 2018 World Finals

 

For the 3rd straight year in a row, the Man Cup 42nd annual Mann Hill Garage World Finals will host the biggest Pro Street turnout of the year. This November 15-18, South Georgia Motorsports Park will once again hold the DME Racing All-Star Pro Street Shootout.

Last year rules were added to allow FIM riders from Europe to participate in the Shootout. Steve Venables, Mogens Lund and Bjorn Fristrom from the UK crated up their bikes and came over for a chance to run the two biggest Pro Street races of the year.

 

 

“We will once again run the event to allow the FIM riders to participate in our unique 32 bike laddered field,” said Man Cup Director Jay Regan. “We appreciate the involvement from the European riders and the support of the U.S. riders in the growth of this class. Not only did we see an increase in the Pro Street class, but Top Fuel as well.”

The rules from last year will be the same for this year’s FIM/European Superstreet Bike Cup competitors:

  • Pro Street rules will be adjusted for this event only to allow FIM racers to enter both races. (Shootout & Man Cup race)
  • Entry is limited to European and Nordic rider and bike combinations that have competed in at least one round of the 2017 or 2018 FIM series.
  • FIM entries will be required to run under their existing FIM rules package.

 

 

“When we opened up the rules last year we did something that has never been done before, and with that comes risks and scrutiny,” said DME Racing President Dimey Eddinger. “But with a turn out of 38 bikes and over 30K in cash and prizes from our sponsors, I would say the event was a great success. DME Racing is proud to play a part in the growth of the Pro Street class in the U.S. and all over the world.”

 

 

“In 2016 we added the Pro Street Shootout and the event had 32 entries, which was a 6 bike increase from the previous year. And last year the event had 38 entries. Seeing the sport grow gives my Dad and I a lot of satisfaction,” stated Jason Dunigan. “Pro Street is our passion and we want to do whatever we can to support it. We are already working to make the 2018 Shootout another great success.”
