Standard payout for series events is $700 to win and a minimum of $250 to start. IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing National, Allstar Performance State and special series points will be awarded each night.
“We came up with a schedule that minimizes travel for drivers but still has enough dates to make the champion eligible for bonus points,” noted Tour Director Roger Hadan. “We want to build onto the fan base for these cars while giving tracks the opportunity to run special events and not have to spend a lot of money doing it.”
“This series is a perfect complement to drivers’ regular weekly racing,” Hadan said. “IMCA and (RaceSaver founder) French Grimes created an ideal foundation for an economical, fan-friendly tour like this. “
