2020 Schedule for Michael Mucha Racing
From the School District Web Site Nov 2016:
It was Career Day at Wood View Elementary School with guests ranging from District Superintendent Dr. James Mitchem to representatives from the Village of Bolingbrook, the Fountaindale Library and the Joliet Slammers. But the most unique presenters were Randy Mucha and his Wood View 4th grade son, Michael, who races in half scale NASCAR race cars. Students not only received quick lessons about what it takes to be a race car driver but also learned how math relates to the car’s gears and suspension and how physics helps keep a fast moving object stuck to a banked oval. Mr. Mucha and Michael also took students outside to see Michael’s car.

SUPER CUP CAR SPECS
Super Cup race cars (or Mini Cup cars) are the same as a NASCAR but exactly 1/2 the size. The cars have full tube chassis, rack and pinion steering, upper and lower control arms and fully adjustable coil over shocks both front and rear. A full cage and a five point safety harness makes these cars one of the safest forms of racing available.
Super Cups are known nation wide and you can almost always find them racing at a track in your local area. Super Cups offer competitive side by side racing with a fully enclosed car for safety. Super Cups come with all the same bodies that NASCAR uses. The cars can achieve speeds of over 100 mph but usually the tracks raced are 1/4 to 1/2 mile paved oval tracks and the Super Cups will be racing between 50 - 80 MPH. The focus of these cars is not top speed as much as competitiveness.
Safety: Full roll cage and body for protection similar to Sprint Cup cars and a 5 point harness, helmet, head and neck restraint (HANS), and full firesuit, shoes and gloves.
Engine: Honda GX390 - Blue Printed 20+ H.P. 4 Stroke, OHV Single Cylinder - Air Cooled - Electric Start - Dry Centrifugal Clutch.
Body: Hand Laid Fiberglass with Carbon Fiber Strips - Lexan Windows - Lasercut Stainless Steel Hinges - Available in Chevy Impala SS, Monte Carlo, Ford Fusion, Dodge Charger, Toyoya Camry and others.
Chassis: 1-1/8th by .065 Chromoly Cage Structure with 1 1/4 Square Frame Rails - Quick Adjust Upper Control Arms - Toe Adjustments - Movable Pedals - Rack and Pinion Steering - Adjustable Coil-over Shocks (Steel or Aluminum) - Fully Tunable Suspension.
Wheels and Tires: 8 by 6.5 Wheels - 15X7X8 Hoosier Racing Slicks.
Nationwide/Organized: The cars and rules are set nationwide by sanctioning bodies and local track rules. So if you travel or need to move, you can still race competitively wherever you go.
Equality: The governing rules keep the cars competitive and allow for the driver to determine his own fate on the track.
WGN feature about the Central States Region Super Cups at Grundy County Speedway from 10 years ago - still accurate today:
Racing Super Cups is one of the least expensive motor sports to participate in, but like anything, doing things the right way, the safe way, and the winning way takes money.
