Q: What will top 20,000 and grow to over $200,000 in 2019?
A: The total number of competitors since this series began 5 years ago and the prize value we will have been able to give back to participating clubs.
“We set out to promote the talent of our 206 racers, support clubs and with the help of partners like Inferno Racing Clutches , RLV , Amsoil , and Snapper we are able to increase 2019’s prize package by over 25% to $59,000 ! Please take the time to thank these awesome sponsors for their dedicated support of local racing. Keep them in mind the next time you need a generator, leaf blower, 206 racing parts, oil, or a clutch.
