Sunday’s 12th running of the Slush Cup, High Sierra Championship, was once again a fun event with thrills and spills. Set on the NASTAR race hill, the Slush Cup features a dual, pro-style course complete with 3 challenging bumps.  Qualifying pits each racer against the clock for the fastest qualifying time.  Racers are then seeded by time and paired with a competitor with a similar time for the finals.  Each finalist pair runs head to head on each course with the results the combined time of the two runs.
