welcome to the empire!

The Empire was born from the passion of fans not only for facial hair, but for the glorious power of neon. Today, that passion is nearly unmatched in motorsports as most marvel strength of 'Nardburns.

As we begin our eighth year of existence the abilities of the Empire seem limitless. Using our neon chariots, we battle across 36 races in an attempt to bring home the Monster Energy Cup to our great lands.

Will this be the year the power of neon reaches it's zenith? Only time will tell...
