The Dodge Viper Cup series is returning for the 2011 season following its successfulfirst year in 2010. The series will begin on May 13th-15th at the Sebring International Raceway in Sebring, Fla and will end on Oct. 21st-23rd at the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona, Fla. It will consist of 10 races with each chosen race weekend hosting two races. In the end, the winner will receive a prize of $15,000, which is pretty good considering the entry fees only amount to $800.
Celebrities can once again find their place in the Dodge Viper Cup Series with as many as two celebrities invited to each race weekend. These celebrities will be driving for charity as there will be guaranteed payouts to celebrity drivers following all 10 races. The highest finishing celebrity will get $2,000 and the next highest finishing celebrity will receive $1,000, with the donations being made to the celebrity’s charity of choice.
"We’re going to keep building on that momentum in 2011 with an expanded contingency program, a reduction in entry fees and the continuation of our successful celebrity driver and charity payout programs to once again generate lots of serious excitement for all Viper enthusiasts."
