Premiere Motorsports Group will be in full force at this year's Challenge Cup, taking place in Lake Elsinore, California, at the Lucas Oil Motorsports Complex. The event originally scheduled for December 11th and 12th was rescheduled to December 18th and 19th due to inclement weather. There are no championships on the line this time around, just large cash prizes and a title that crowns the best of the performing drivers. The Challenge Cup is a unique event, pairing up several divisions against a comparable counterpart - Unlimited-4 versus Unlimited-2.

"Unlimited-Lite versus Unlimited Buggy, it is finally time for all the buggy dorks to back up the years of smack talk. Open wheel buggies putting it all on the line to beat out the 4-cylinder Lite Trucks. The only thing I have to say about this is, keep it rubber side down and the speed up," says a spokesperson for the team.

The Premiere Motorsports Group was presented multiple awards this year including, Super Team of the Year, Driver of the Year - Chris Brandt, Mechanic of the Year - Blake Wilkey, second in points in limited Buggy - John Fitzgerald (number 314), and second in points Superlite - Chad Leising (number 17). This is a team with a shipload of pride and smack talk to backup.

"We are really proud of our team drivers this year. Everybody showed an impressive display and enthusiasm for what they are doing on and off the track. You can feel the energy during every race day. Chris Brandt, Chad Leising, and John Fitzgerald are the corner stones that round off the team. Each of these guys really pumps their crews up, fueling the momentum to keep this operation rolling. Believe it not, these three drivers alone supplied all of the 45 Podium finishes Premiere Motorsports Group achieved this season. We look forward to continuing the terrific relationship with K&N and bringing them many more first place finishes and podium victories," says Scot Demmer, PMG team manager.

Freestyle motocross pioneer Carey Hart is a new comer to off-road truck racing. This year has been a learning process for the Rockstar Hart and Huntington leader. He is sure to be a serious contender in the near future with his skills. Hart competes in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series Unlimited 2 class for the Premiere Motorsports Group.

Chad Leising - SuperLite Number 17 "I have been using K&N products on my vehicles for years. The quality of K&N products far exceeds the others on the market and due to that simple fact; I use their products on not only my race truck, but my daily drivers as well. It is added insurance that not only gets us to the finish line, but also wins races and ensures maximum protection against all the destructive elements out on the racetrack. I highly value our teams relationship with K&N and strongly believe in their products, bottom line."

"After two years of running our SuperLite program, we feel as if it is time to take the next step. In the near future, we plan on participating in one of the three upper class divisions (Pro-Lite, Pro-2, Pro-4). This is all made possible with the great support of race partners like K&N."

John Fitzgerald - Limited Buggy Number 314 "I use K&N air filters on my buggy to ensure no dirt gets in my motor and a K&N oil filter to keep my Lucas oil clean and pure. "Next year we are trying to put together a Pro-Lite program for me, in which we would use K&N products to ensure we get plenty of filtered air to the motor and keep the oil clean. 4-Cylinder Toyota Engines need to breathe lots of air to make good power."

Chris Brandt - Unlimited-Lite Number 82 (Pro-Lite) "I use K&N air filters and oil filters. I am very pleased with the relationship we have going and appreciate the support I get for our team. My future plans are to dominate the Unlimited-Lite class and move up to an Unlimited 2 or 4 class. We have already done a bit of testing in the Unlimited-4 (Pro-4) with great results."
