Racers competing in the Red’s Shoe Barn Super Pro category and A&B Tire Pro eliminator now have an opportunity to take home a guaranteed $1,000 with a win. Members of the racer committee recently met with representatives from the New England Dragway Board of Directors to work out the details.
One of the hurdles facing the group was entry fees for those two classes. The group felt a modest increase of $5.00 to support the $1,000 guarantee would be acceptable, especially in consideration of the track’s entry compared to other facilities. Although the $1,000 to win is guaranteed, the remaining purse will continue to be pro-rated. New England Dragway will continue to place $5 from every entry into the end of year championship payout, as well.
The new payout structure begins on May 6, with the first of 16 scheduled VP Race Fuel ET Series events.
