Those who participate in our $2000 Challenge know how much we appreciate our partners for these events. We wouldn't have the ability to host any of our favorite events without partners behind us. And so it is our pleasure to announce Miller Electric as our latest partner for the Grassroots Motorsports $2015 Challenge.

This year, the winner of the Grassroots Motorsports $2015 Challenge will walk away with a brand-spanking-new Millermattic 211 MIG welder. It packs a class-leading 3/8-inch welding capacity into a highly portable case, perfect for the garage and track.

If that's not enough, they are also giving away a Hot Rod Garage Digital Elite helmet to the winner of the Challengers' Choice award.

Weird. When I read the title, I thought you were giving away one of these(!):

It's a heck of a prize. I know it will go to a great home.

Something to shoot for- win with all bolt on hardware, and you get a welder to do more the next year with.

Random thought: Whoever wins this should do some parking lot welding that evening--you know, to show us how it's done.

Think we could demo it on Thursday? I’ve welded something in the parking lot for the past 4 years in a row.

To follow on Alta's thought. Maybe this should go to the winner of the caveman class.

Would like one of those as well for small quick jobs. Just cant bring myself to build something to drag race. But then again if we were running solo 1 at the FIRM instead I would be on it like stink on poop. This is GRM isnt it and not Hot Rod magazine?

Well it definitely takes more than a dedicated drag car to win. The Challenge tends to reward cars that can do all three events well, not cars that perform exceptionally in just one of the events: drags, autocross and concours.

I don't believe that makes us copy-cats of Hot Rod Magazine.

just saying I would like to stay within the format of GRM and do either a track event or a rallycross not into drag racing one bit if I was I guess I would have a subscription to Hot Rod Magazine
