CRA-sanctioned seriesEdit

ARCA/CRA Super SeriesEdit

The ARCA/CRA Super Series is the premier series of the Champion Racing Association. It was formerly known as the Kendall Late Model Series and the Sunoco Super Series. The series utilizes Super Late Models. Regulations on engine and body are NASCAR legal. Like NASCAR, the car body designs are based on the Chevrolet SS, Dodge Charger, Ford Fusion, and the Toyota Camry. The most recent series champion is Hunter Jack.

JEGS All Stars TourEdit

Champion Racing Association purchased the Michigan-based Super Pro Series and began in 2011. The JEGS All Stars Tour utilizes Pro Late Models, which is powered by a crate engine. The crate engine rule is meant to reduce the costs of the engines to the competitors. The crate engines are built by the automobile manufacturers themselves, such as General Motors and Ford. The most recent champion is Cody Coughlin in 2021.

Late Model Sportsman SeriesEdit

The CRA Late Model Sportsman Series debuted in 2005. The most recent champion is Billy Hutson in 2021

Street Stock SeriesEdit

The CRA Street Stock Series debuted in 2005. The most recent champion is Jason Atkinson in 2021.

Past seriesEdit

Vore's FWD Compacts SeriesEdit

The most recent series champion was Jeff Shelmadine in 2011. In late 2011 however, Champion Racing Association disbanded its promotion of the Compacts, and this division is now promoted by series sponsor Vore's Welding.
