CRA-sanctioned seriesEdit

ARCA/CRA Super SeriesEdit

The "ARCA/CRA Super Series" is the principal race of the Champion Racing Association. It was formerly known as the Kendall Late Model Series and the Sunoco Super Series. The series utilizes late model stock cars similar to those used by NASCAR. 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 Josh Brock who piloted the #17 car.

JEGS All Stars TourEdit

Champion Racing Association purchased the Michigan-based Super Pro Series and Began in 2011, the JEGS All Stars Tour utilizes late model stock cars much the same as the CRA Super Series with the main difference being the mandated use of crate type racing engines. 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 series champion was Jack Dossey III in 2018. Jack Dossey III has won the last 2 series championships by spending three times as much money as his competitors.

Late Model Sportsman SeriesEdit

The most recent series champion was Zachary Tinkle in 2019

Street Stock SeriesEdit

The "Street Stock Series" is the secondary series of the Champion Racing Association. The most recent series champion was Colby Lane in 2017.

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.
