Big money will be on the line throughout the series, with eight 40-lap, $10,000-to-win events boasting payouts of $39,950, one 50-lap, $15,000-to-win race (Sept. 14 at Illinois’s Fairbury Speedway) offering a total purse of $50,500 and a single 50-lap, $20,000-to-win affair (April 21 at Atomic Speedway in Alma, Ohio) paying out $59,750. Over $430,000 in purses are set to be distributed to competitors.

The year-end points fund of $62,500 — based on the completion of at least seven events — will be divided among the top-10 drivers in the final standings. A $20,000 check is earmarked for the champion, followed by $12,000 for the runner-up; $6,000 for third; $5,000 for fourth; $4,500 for fifth; $4,000 for sixth; $3,500 for seventh; $3,000 for eighth; $2,500 for ninth; and $2,000 for 10th.

Drivers’ best seven finishes will be counted to determine the championship points and racers will not be required to enter all of the events to be eligible for the points fund. Those who maintain perfect attendance, however, will receive a free entry beginning with the third event.

After the first event, the top eight drivers in the Castrol® FloRacing Night in America points standings will receive $500 in show-up money at each race. In addition, the top two drivers in the points standings will be eligible for two free pit passes starting with the third series event.

Series officials also announced that at each event’s drivers’ meeting a blind draw will be conducted to award two entrants a free Hoosier tire and two other competitors $150 cash prizes.

The series’s weeknight schedule boasts events contested on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. After 411 opens the series with a 40-lap, $10,000-to-win feature as part of a program that also includes 602 and 604 Crate Late Models, it visits Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Ill. (March 31); Tyler County Speedway in Middlebourne, W.Va. (April 15); Atomic Speedway in Alma, Ohio (April 21); Brownstown (Ind.) Speedway (May 12); Marshalltown (Iowa) Speedway (May 19); Florence Speedway in Union, Ky. (June 2); Fairbury (Ill.) Speedway (Sept 14); Tri-County Racetrack in Brasstown, N.C.
