Point Blank Range, Lake Norman’s premier, NSSF Five Star Rated, indoor shooting facility and proud host of the Motorsports Team Challenge (MTC), is now organizing its 3rd competition – the Spring Recoil Series! The Motorsports Team Challenge is team shooting competition for race teams currently competing in a recognized professional motorsports series.

This fast paced steel plate match is designed to put skills and teamwork to the test. Previous MTC competitions have included teams from Germain Racing, Petty Motorsports, Penske Racing and Earnhardt Ganassi Racing to name a few. MTC II individual grand prize winner, Ed Watkins from Earnhardt Ganassi Racing says, “The Motorsports Team Challenge was so much fun. It lets us bring the camaraderie and competitive natures we have on the track into a whole new element.”

Scott Whitehead from Germain Racing - the MTC II winning team states, "This is really a great event. As racers we all work crazy schedules, long hours, and we get to appreciate all the other guys on the road as family. Some of us had a little experience with shooting, and some had none, but we spent time at the range practicing together, and it really helped us coach each other throughout the competition. Our plan is to return to compete for a repeat championship, but we know that lots of other teams are taking this seriously as well, and it's going to get more and more competitive to win that top spot."

The competition will consist of five matches scheduled during the month of April with the Grand Finale on May 1st. Matches will be held on Wednesday evenings, April 3rd, April 10th, April 17th, April 24th and May 1st from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM. Bragging rights and a Trophy Cup will be awarded at the Grand Finale match including prizes from event sponsor, Smith & Wesson and more.
