Thanks to a unique purse structure, more cars entering the mid-week event at “The World’s Fastest Half-Mile” will lead to even bigger payouts for ARCA/CRA Super Series and ARCA Midwest Tour competitors.
The purse for the Fly Over States 150 could reach as high as $80,000 with $20,000 going to the winner, depending on how many cars enter the event at Winchester Speedway.
The Fly Over States 150 will pay out a minimum of $10,000 to win, with a guaranteed purse of $50,000. If there are 30 or more cars, it will pay $12,500 to win the 150-lap Super Late Model feature event. 40 or more cars will increase the winner’s share to $15,000, with 50 or more cars paying $20,000 to win. It is possible for the total purse of the event to reach $80,000.
Each of the last four runnings of the Winchester 400 have seen at least 30 entries, even if attrition has prevented all of those entries from answering the call on race day. Thus, it is quite possible to see at least one increase in the Fly Over States 150 payout from the base tier of $10,000-to-win.
“We are already guaranteeing a great purse ($50,000), including paying at least $10,000 to win,” said Winchester Speedway promoter Bob Dillner. “We just wanted to add some extra incentive for the racers. If they bring the cars, we’ll pay more – it’s as simple as that.
Car count is one of the biggest things that helps races, from a fan perspective to an industry side of things. Everyone at Winchester wants to work with the racers to bring more cars and make the spectacle that is the World’s Fastest Half Mile even bigger than it is. This is only the tip of the iceberg in terms of what we have planned for racers and fans.
The event will also feature controlled cautions, as an eight-tire race for teams. There will be optional open practice on Monday, May 17 ahead of Tuesday’s racing. Practice will begin at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, May 18 with qualifying at 5:30. The racing action will begin at 6:30 p.m., featuring the Vores Compact Touring Series as well as the 150-lap Super Late Model feature.
