With three contestants submitting the same entry in the UMSS "Name the Series" contest for the new non-winged sprint car division, Skip Lutgen ended up being the lucky winner in a drawing held on Wednesday, January 26. Skip along with Chad Patterson and Mike Niemczyk submitted "Traditional Sprint Series" entries. The word "car" was inserted into the final version to read Traditional Sprint Car Series (TSCS). Skip ended up as the lucky winner and will have the distinction of being the person who got to name the series!
As the winner, Skip won a $50 cash prize from GRP Motorsports and two free pit passes plus some free concession food to a race (possibly Kopellah Speedway) courtesy of Ron Bernhagen. The total prize package is in excess of $100.
