With the beginning of the 2020 Southern Super Series season this weekend at the Rattler 250, a new bonus will be added to seven of the 10 scheduled Southern Super Series races during the season. As announced back in January, the “Double Down at the Next Town” bonus will allow racers the opportunity to double their winnings if they win in select events during the season.
Thanks to the Double Down and big-money races at the Rattler, Peach State Classic, and the Short Track U.S. Nationals, all Southern Super Series races could pay $10,000 to win during the 2020 season. The only requirement to compete for the bonus is drivers have to start the previous race. There is no season-long commitment to the series required, and points standings do not play a role in bonus eligibility.
For example, all drivers who enter and compete in the season-opening Rattler 250 at South Alabama Speedway this weekend will be eligible for the Double Down when the series visits Five Flags Speedway (FL) for the Blizzard Series opener on June 26.
“It’s pure and simple. We want to pay $10,000 to our winner,” Southern Super Series promoter Tim Bryant said on “The Bullring” on January 27. “At the same time, we want to enhance car counts at each and every track. If a driver is going to pick and choose his races, which a lot of racers do, if he picks one on the schedule that works for him, he might look at the one before it and say ‘If I can go to that one, too, it might double my money.”
