Viper Smart StartKevin Montgomery, PEORIA, Ariz. (March 25, 2013) – Chris McCurdy Jr. will enter the Canyon Speedway Park 1/3-mile clay oval for the first time in 2013 as the defending champion, a title that earned him $1,000 for his efforts in 2012.  Now with the stakes higher, McCurdy will have to hold off the charge of several of the top Pure Stock drivers across the state all aiming to win the inaugural ViperSmart Start Pure Stock feature event Saturday April 6th.


While the 2013 championship will still offer up $1,000 to the champion, Viper SmartStart has also increased the payout for not only the champ fund but also each purse, increasing the winners share to $400 with the balance of the top 10 all reaping benefits from their generosity.
