Revamped Gold Cup Draws Big Field

CHICO, Calif. — When Kyle Larson, Brad Sweet, and Colby Copeland announced their newly formed promotional group, SLC Promotions, would take over the reins of the historic Silver Dollar Speedway, they immediately announced their intentions to revive the Gold Cup Race of Champions. The spots will be earned through points accumulated during qualifying, heat races and the prelim feature. The two prelims will award $10,000 to the winner each night and simply making a prelim feature is worth $1,000. SLC’s efforts to revitalize the Gold Cup have resulted in a healthy field of entries with the current tally at 63. For some context on the growth of the car count, the past two Gold Cups combined amounted to 62 entrants. The Grass Valley, Calif., native has never won Gold Cup, but with two career prelim victories and podiums in the two most recent finales. The first two Outlaw wins of Larson’s career came at Gold Cup in back-to-back years.
