FAYETTEVILLE, NC – Fayetteville Motor Speedway and promoter Jim Long Jr just added more money to the biggest race in history at the 4/10-mile speed plant located in Fayetteville, NC. Celebrating their 50th Anniversary in 2018, FMS will host the World of Outlaws Craftsman Super Late Models on May 11-12 for the biggest Super Late Model event in the state of North Carolina. “The First in Flight 100, Presented by Hoker Trucking” in memory of Carlton Lamm will pay a whopping $25,001 to Win and $2,000 to start.
Not only will there be a record purse for the 100-Lap Feature event but a special Big C Dash for Cash-Presented by Premier Waste Services will take place on Friday night that will pay the winner $1,001, instead of $500 that was originally announced with $250 to start for this Dash. This Special Big C Dash for Cash will include the top finishers from each qualifying heat race. After the redraw they will race each other for the top starting positions for Saturday’s 100-Lap Feature event.
In addition to this mega event there will be an added twist to the Non-Qualifiers Race on Saturday for drivers that did not transfer into the starting field for the 100-Lap Feature. The winner of the Non-Qualifiers Race can elect to forfeit the $2,000 top prize of the Non Qualifiers Race and start at the rear of the 100-Lap feature event with a chance to win the $25,001. Fayetteville Motor Speedway has also increased the start money for the Non-Qualifiers race to $400 up from $300 to start as originally announced. Every driver that enters this weekend’s event has a chance to take home some money just by competing. A special thanks goes out to Hoker Trucking and Premier Waste Services for their added sponsorship.
Jim Long, promoter of Fayetteville Motor Speedway, has decided to make this mega event a Tribute to Carlton Lamm who recently passed away due to illness at age 77. Mr. Lamm is a former owner of Fayetteville Motor Speedway and long-time friend and sponsor of the Track with his Dunn-Benson Ford Dealership located in Dunn, NC just 30 minutes north of the Race Track. Dunn Benson Motorsports owned by Carlton and his son Kemp Lamm with their driver Bobby Pierce will also be entered in the event. The “Big C Dash for Cash” on Friday night will be in tribute and memory of Mr. Lamm.
“We wanted to do something special this year to celebrate the 50th Year Anniversary of Fayetteville Motor Speedway. This historic event will be the largest payout ever at Fayetteville Motor Speedway and now were able to add even more money on the purse for racers that enter this weekend. We hope the local and regional racers will see the opportunity to race against the best National drivers in the country and see the opportunity to earn some good money with our start money starting at $2,000 and a Non-Qualifiers race paying $2,000 to Win, more than most local Saturday night feature events. Special thanks to Hoker Trucking and Premier Waste Services and all our great partners of Fayetteville Motor Speedway to make this huge event possible”, stated Jim Long Jr., promoter of Fayetteville Motor Speedway.
