LEXINGTON, Neb. – The winner of Dawson County Raceway’s Sunday, Aug. 2 IMCA Sunoco Stock Car Challenge earns at least $1,500 and possibly as much as $2,500.
Sponsored by Alfred Ward & Son, Elite Sports and Wraps by Wells Design, the Challenge totes a $10,000 main event purse, with a minimum of $200 to start the 25-lap feature.
The top 12 out of the heats transfer to a 10-lap pole dash. The lineup for the big show will be set by the finish of the pole dash with a kicker: The dash winner can split $1,000 ($500 each) with the runner-up and invert the 12 spots.
The dash winner also has the option of starting on front row along with the runner-up and each of the third through 12th place finishers in the dash get $100. The remainder of the main event field will qualify through last-chance races.
Lap money is $20 for each circuit led and contingency prizes will be spread throughout the race program. Non-qualifier money is $50.
All IMCA rules apply and will be enforced for the draw/redraw show. IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing National, EQ Cylinder Heads Northern Region, Allstar Performance State and local track points will be awarded.
There is a $25 entry fee and a registration to fill out for Stock Car drivers.
Payout has also been increased to $500 for the winner of the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock feature. There is no entry or registration fee for new entries in that division.
Other sanctioned divisions on the program that evening are Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modifieds and Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods.
