MagnaFlow, Meguiar’s, Centerforce and Red Line Oil have already partnered with Hotchkis on the Hotchkis Autocross series, and now the Hedman Performance Group has signed on as the event series’ newest sponsor.

There are still eight events remaining in the 2015 Hotchkis Autocross series. Next weekend, the series heads back to the West Coast for the second NMCA West event of the year at the Auto Club Dragway in Fontana, California. The rest of the events this year include three Street Machines Nationals events in Du Quoin, Illinois; St. Paul, Minnesota; and Springfield, Missouri; two more NMCA West events in Fontana, and the Chrysler Nationals in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.

In addition to class trophies for quickest time and sponsor awards, Hotchkis will present the driver with the quickest average time with the “Hotchkis Cup” award, which rewards clean, consistent runs and superior car control. There will also be a special Hotchkis Cup mini-season taking place at the NMCA West events where drivers will compete in a season points chase where the scores from their best three events will be combined to determine the overall season winner.
