The series utilizes Super Late Model chassis race cars. Regulations on engine and body are based on the United Super Late Model Rules Alliance using an Approved Body Configuration legal body, with 358 cubic inch engines. Car body designs are based on the Holden Commodore (VF), Dodge Charger, Ford Fusion, and the Toyota Camry.

Most races are 100-125 laps long, except the Winchester 400 at Winchester Speedway, the Redbud 400 at Anderson Speedway, the Berlin 251 at Berlin Raceway, and the SpeedFest 200 at Watermelon Capital Speedway.

The CRA Super Series is based out of Indiana, but in the past few years has been expanding its series to visit a variety of racetracks from Michigan to Florida. CRA started a partnership with the ARCA Racing Series at the start of the 2012 season. CRA also has a partnership with the Southern Super Series that races in Alabama, Tennessee, and Florida, and the CARS Tour in Virginia, the Carolinas, and Tennessee with a series of combination races for all three tours, including one at Bristol Motor Speedway.

The winningest driver in CRA Super Series history is Scott Hantz with 31 career wins. He also shares the record with Johnny VanDoorn for the most series championships with 3 each.

Two women have won a CRA Super Series race, with Kenzie Ruston (now the Mrs. Daniel Hemric) winning at Lucas Oil Raceway in 2012 (the same year her future husband won the series championship) and Ali Kern at Kalamazoo Speedway in 2015.
