FYI...The Team Virgin Cigs won the Worlds & The Nationals in 2002.....Not quite 30 years ago......For Whatever reasons Cigarette has chosen not to back racing since......
May have something to do with how FUBARed Racing is ? I dont know.

Racing costs lots of money....
Skip knows nothing about racing and dosen't want to...he is a bussiness man and bought Cig to make money for himself.
Thats not saying he never will and maybe this Ben Robertson his part of that but he spent a big nut on the new factory.

Would that be the new "option" hull? You have the option of running either side up.



Just kidding Cig guys!
