Free Entry Opens for March 9 Shamrock Classic

Du Quoin, Illinois (January 30, 2019) -- Fast Lane Racing Apparel is sponsoring FREE race entry for all USAC NOS Energy Midget National Championship teams competing in the March 9 “Shamrock Classic” at the Southern Illinois Center in Du Quoin.

By using coupon code FASTLANE in the box at the link teams will be able to enter their midget for FREE until Monday, March 4 at 11pm (Central Time) when the offer expires.  Pre-entries will be published the following day on Tuesday, March 5.

Entries for the Micro Sprint portion of the event can also be filed at the link for $40.  The entries for the Micro event will be cutoff once 40 teams are entered.

The fourth annual event presents a hefty payday of $50,000 up for grabs when the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midgets compete in the 1/6-mile indoor dirt oval located in southern Illinois.

The Factory Canopies “Pot of Gold” Challenge will provide the top-four drivers in passing points throughout the night an opportunity to pad their wallets with a $50,000 bonus.  Following the heats and qualifying races, if the top driver in passing points turns down the chance to go to the tail and go for $50K, the option will go on to the next driver and so on, but only the first four in passing points have that option.

The “Shamrock Classic” will offer appearance points only to drivers and their teams, no feature points.  That means there’s really nothing to lose in the grand scheme in terms of a championship campaign.  With a driver’s finishing position not being a part of the series title race, that creates more enticement for a team and driver to take on the challenge.

With it being the fourth annual event, the base winner’s share is $4000, meaning if a driver could complete the challenge and win from the tail, he or she would collect $54,000, which would be, by far, the richest take-home pay any driver has ever earned for a single race in the history of the USAC NOS Energy Midget National Championship.

Greg and Kim Stewart have been selling event merchandise for over 25 years at racing events across the country.They are proud to sponsor the entry fee portion of the 4thAnnual "Shamrock Classic."  As part of their sponsorship, every team who enters will receive a 25% off coupon valid at any 2019 event where Fast Lane Racing Apparel is set up and selling merchandise.Your discount can also be used online at FastLaneRacingApparel.com.Fast Lane Racing Apparel will have a booth in Du Quoin where you can purchase your racing merchandise needs.

In addition to USAC National Midget entry fees and the aforementioned discount, every fan in attendance at the "Shamrock Classic" will receive a Fast Lane Racing Apparel coupon valid at every major event at Eldora Speedway, Knoxville Nationals, and Knoxville Late Model Nationals.  Fans will receive this coupon upon entry to event.
