The CEMCA Mini Cup Series is the outgrowth of the efforts of Ron Barfield and the Dillon Motor Speedway to try to attract new racers to the exciting world of Mini Cup competition.
Prior to the launch of the CEMCA Mini Cup Series, the speedway performed tests of both the factory stock 13HP Honda engine and the "Harbor Freight" 13HP Clone engine. The performance of both engines under track test conditions were impressive and paved the way for the launch of the CEMCA Mini Cup Series.
That decision gave birth to CEMCA and we have been growing ever since. Currently with over 20 Mini Cups registered, CEMCA now holds the destinction of being voted the most popular class at Dillon Motor Speedway in 2011.
Ron Barfield and the Dillon Motor Speedway have provided the platform for the CEMCA Mini Cup Series to compete several times a month at the speedway. The commitment of Ron Barfield and the Dillon Motor Speedway to ensure the growth and success of the CEMCA Mini Cup Series is most appreciated by all of the racers and fans.
All cars must be inspected and tagged by Dillon Motor Speedway for safety. Engines may be built by anyone as long as the engine adheres to the CEMCA Mini Cup Series rules. All pre and post race inspections for compliance with the CEMCA Mini Cup Series rules will be performed by Mr. Ronnie Barfield, technical inspector at the Dillon Motor Speedway.
