Why run in just one event when you can save so much by registering for the whole Series! (7 total events)

And don't forget - this is a StartLine Racing Series which means big prizes!!

Get points for every event you complete, with extra points being awarded based on your age group and overall finish.  At the end of the series the top 100 point earns, plus all participants that complete at least 4 of the 7 series events, will be entered into our Arizona Sunrise Series Prize Drawing.
