The COMP Cams® Interstate Cup presented by Dixon Road U-Pull-It was created in 2011 to reward drivers for competing at both I-30 Speedway and Riverside International Speedway. A.G. Rains from West Memphis, Arkansas, has claimed the title in each of the first three years. For 2014 the two tracks have once again coincided their schedules to not run Winged 360c.i. Sprint Cars on the same night. Each weekly racing series points event at each track will count toward a driver’s point total in the Interstate Cup. Any special event does not count as a points event for the series.

For 2014 drivers have no restrictions on how many races that they can miss at each facility to still be eligible for the season-ending point  money. Points acrued in all races will count toward the final total.

The final payout for the series will pay ten places as follows: 1)$2,000 2)$1,500 3)$1,000 4)$800 5)$700 6)$600 7)$500 8)$450 9)$350 10)$300. As more sponsors are secured the payout may be increased.

COMP Cams® has also posted the following contingency prizes for the top five:
1st – $1000 COMP Cams® Gift Certificate PLUS Trophy Cup
2nd – $750 COMP Cams® Gift Certificate
3rd – $500 COMP Cams® Gift Certificate
4th – $250 COMP Cams® Gift Certificate
5th – $125 COMP Cams® Gift Certificate

In addition to money and contingencies, the program will award provisionals. The driver highest in the final top ten standings in the points program who doesn’t qualify for the 6th Annual Ralph Henson Memorial on Saturday, September 27, at I-30 Speedway will get a provisional starting spot in the main event. Similarly, the driver highest in the top ten in the final points (who didn’t use a provisional at the Ralph Henson Memorial) who doesn’t qualify for the Fall Nationals at Riverside International Speedway on Saturday, October 11, will get a provisional starting spot for that A-Main.

Race fans can also donate money to the points fund. For a $100 donation, a race fan can be the title sponsor on a Sprint Car Weekly Racing Series event at either track, and 100% of that money will go into the points fund.
