The Appalachian Indoor Showdown returns to Wytheville, Virginia’s Appalachian Regional Exposition Center on Saturday, February 29. The event will once again provide flat kart racers an opportunity to score a big payday if they can sweep the four divisions of racing.
A $5,000 bonus is up for grabs if a racer wins in the Clone Heavy, Clone Pro, Predator 375 and Predator Pro divisions at the Appalachian Indoor Showdown.
“We are excited to offer this bonus for our flat kart racers at the Appalachian Indoor Showdown,” said Ashly Burnett, promoter of Millbridge Speedway as well as the App Showdown. “They produced incredible racing at last year’s inaugural event, and we believe fans will be treated to more of the same in 2020.”
The $5,000 bonus is presented by Millbridge Speedway, Phantom Racing Chassis, K1 Racegear, Tod Miller Racing Engines and Speed51.
If a driver is able to complete the sweep, they will pocket more than $7,000 in total winnings. The Clone Heavy Pro feature will pay $1,000 to the winner, with $500 first-place prizes on the line for Clone Heavy and Predator Pro and $300 going to the Predator 375 winner.
There will also be the possibility for an invert for each of the flat kart classes. The pole sitter for each class will roll dice to determine the invert, with the possibility for a zero, four, or six kart invert.
Outlaw Kart classes will also be in action at the Appalachian Indoor Showdown. The Open division will pay $500 to win, Intermediates and Box Stocks will pay $300 to win and Beginner Box Stocks will pay $200 to win.
Pit passes for all classes will be $20, with grandstand admission set at $15 for adults and $10 for children aged 7-12. Children six and under will receive free admission.
The pits will open at noon on race day, with doors opening for grandstand admission at 5 p.m.
Marketing opportunities are available for the event as well. For more information, call Ashly Burnett at 704-235-8016.
