Stepping Up No Prep
By Laura Pitts on June 29, 2017

Despite having to cancel its inaugural June 28 event at US 131 Motorsports Park in Martin, Michigan, due to rain, Lane Automotive’s $30,000 No-Prep Triple Crown Series is still turning heads.

The appeal of no prep, of course, lies in its great equalizer—a surface with little to no preparation or treatment that’s about as close as it gets to side-by-side racing on city streets—along with big purses like those offered at the Triple Crown.

According to organizers, full-bodied race cars must have factory quarters and a roof, as well as a factory VIN, and weigh at least 2750 lbs. Drag slicks are allowed, but traction compounds are not, and entry fees are $100 per event.

“No-prep, up until recently, is probably the most unorganized, unorthodox racing you can imagine. It’s like street racing, except you are bringing it to the track,” drag racer and Dirty South No-Prep Series co-owner Mike Murillo told PRI when we covered the topic back in April.

Featuring a $10,000 guaranteed cash payout and a contingency program for each race, the second and third races on the schedule are tentatively set for July 26 and August 23. For more information, visit
