Speed51.com, the nation’s premier short track racing news website, will present a variety of bonuses to competitors during this weekend’s Race of Champions 250 at Lake Erie Speedway. In all, the Concord, North Carolina based operation will hand out over $600 across three Race of Champions divisions.


“Bob Dillner and the entire Speed51.com staff have a huge passion for Modified and short track racing. We appreciate their support of our series and our racers during our biggest event of the year,” said Joe Skotnicki with the Race of Champions. “These unique bonuses will put some extra cash in the pockets of our racers this weekend.”


As announced earlier this year for every Race of Champions Asphalt Modified Series and Race of Champions Super Stock Series event, Speed51.com will once again present the “Top of the Board” award to the fastest qualifier in both divisions. The Modified fast qualifier will receive a $151 cash bonus, while the Super Stock fast qualifier will receive a $51 cash bonus.


Unique to the Race of Champions 250, Speed51.com will also be presenting a $251 bonus to the fastest Modified driver in practice. The $251 cash bonus will be delivered to the driver who posts the fastest overall lap between all of the weekend’s practice sessions.


“We’re talking about practice? Yes, we are,” said Speed51.com Editor Brandon Paul. “People always say, ‘You can’t win practice.’ Guess what? You can at the Race of Champions. We believe this award goes along with the ‘every lap matters’ motto embraced by Joe Skotnicki and the Race of Champions.”


In addition to their support of the Super Stocks and Modifieds, Speed51.com will also help boost the purse for the RoC Late Models feature on Saturday afternoon. The winner of the 40-lap feature will receive an extra $251, making the race a minimum of $1,251-to-win.


Speed51.com will be on location at Lake Erie Speedway throughout the weekend providing the latest news and information about the 68th Annual Race of Champions 250.


Race fans unable to make it to Lake Erie will be able to watch a live broadcast of Saturday’s race via a pay-per-view broadcast on Speed51.com.
