The International 500 is also featuring a Monza-style twin 50-lap Airborne Modified feature event and a 100-lap non-qualifier “Reserve Feature” for ACT Late Model teams who do not qualify for the main event. Both events will post over $20,000.00 in purse and prize money. The 40 lucky teams who qualify for the “Milk Bowl”-style feature will run three 100-lap inverted races that make up the 300. A minimum of $25,000.00 to the overall winner in the unique event has been posted.
