Late Model Stock teams and drivers looking to compete with the tour on a full time basis have just a few days remaining to register for consideration for the inaugural Touring 12 incentives program.
The Touring 12 program will see twelve drivers sign agreements to compete full time on the CARS Late Model Stock Tour, receiving plethora of benefits along the way. Touring 12 selected drivers will receive the following as part of their incentive package:
-Guarantee of $1,000 to start each race
-Two sets of race tire per event at $100 per set discount
-Four grandstand tickets to each race, used for promotional purposes
-Annual race entry for all twelve events is $825 ($975 savings)

Heading into the final week of registration 19 different team and driver combinations have applied for the program, which reaches the deadline for registrations on Friday February 2nd at 4PM. All Late Model Stock teams that can meet the requirements of the program are heavily encouraged to enter via the registration form on the CARS Tour website at www.carsracingtour.com. The registration form has all requirements and full details of the program explained.
While just twelve team and driver combinations will be selected for the Touring 12 program, additional incentive programs are in place to effect all levels of participation amongst competitors in 2018.
Any team that competes in any three consecutive LMSC races in 2018 will receive additional $500 added to their purse checks at the third event.

The top three in LMSC track points, just prior to the CARS Tour race, will receive three, two, or one free Hoosier race tire to compete based on the order of their pre entry.
