Founded by John Condren, owner of California's Altamont Raceway Park, the Optima Batteries ChumpCar World Series is a series of automotive races held on paved road race tracks across North America. The name is a parody of Champ Car, a defunct open-wheel professional racing series. The series offers endurance races that range from 7 to 37 hours long, as well as class-based sprint races of 40 minutes. ChumpCar's slogan is "Real Racing, Real Tracks, Real Cheap Cars," and its mission, as stated on its website, is to be "...a throw-back to the era when racing was fun and cheap... when Bondo beat carbon-fiber; when a crescent wrench was the most valuable tool in your box; when homemade engineering made everyone sit up and take notice; and when adding a little theme to your car didn't get you laughed off of pit lane. Those were good times... and they're back."
