Berlin Raceway and Kalamazoo Speedway Announce Combined Point Fund for Outlaw Super Late Model Special Events

Berlin-Kalamazoo Logos

Berlin-Kalamazoo Logos

Two of the premier Outlaw Super Late Model races in the country will share a combined point fund for their 2014 events. Berlin Raceway’s “Money in the Bank” will be run on Wednesday, June 11 and Kalamazoo Speedway’s “Kalamazoo Klash XXII”will be on Wednesday, August 13. Both events will have identical ‘A’Feature payouts and a combined point fund. The purse for each event will be as follows:

$10,000 to win-$4,000-$2,500-$2,250-$2,000-$1,500-$1,400-$1,300-$1,200-$1,100-$1,000-$1,000-$1,000-$1,000-$1,000-$900-$900-$900-$900-$900-$850 on back (26 cars at Berlin, 22 at Kalamazoo)

At the conclusion of Kalamazoo Klash XXII the drivers that make the ‘A’Feature for both events will have their finishing positions in the two events averaged and the top ten average finishers will receive a share of a combined point fund for the two events. The Bonus Point Fund however will not be a traditional point fund with the driver placing the best average finish being guaranteed the most money. Instead, the top 10 best average finishers will “Draw”1-10 for their specific amount. (ex. A driver that finishes an average of 9th place will have the same chance at winning an extra $1,500 as the winner of the two race series would have.) The amounts to draw from for the 2 race event will be:

$1,500-$1,000-$700-$600-$550-$500-$500-$500-$400-$400

If there is a tie for the tenth position the tie will be broken by the average qualifying position for the two events. If the tie can still not be broken the drivers will simply split the money.

The addition of the point fund will bring the combined payout for these two events to over $90,000 which should make both of these “can’t miss” events for any Outlaw Super Late Model team or fan. Berlin Raceway promoter Mike Bursley stated, “This is a great way to show that Racing Community needs to work with one another. Together we have structured something that is different and unique for not only the racers but for the spectators as well.” Gary Howe, promoter of Kalamazoo Speedway said, “We feel that this could be a huge step in getting pavement tracks to work together in an attempt to save the Outlaw Super Late Model division.”

Kalamazoo Speedway Opens for the 65th Consecutive Year and NASCAR is Again our Sanctioning Body

Luke-Krick

Luke-Krick

We are proud to have Nascar as our sanctioning body and the bonuses that it provides our drivers. There is no other track in Michigan that can provide 1,000,000 worth of coverage for all sanctioned races, and an end of year point fund that Nascar supports along with Lane Automotive. We do not require you to pay anything to register your number or car, only purchase the best insurance policy anywhere.

New for 2014 and beyond

Every driver is required to purchase  a Nascar license to be able to run on opening night. If you are not planning on running the entire season , you can purchase a 15 day license which would allow you to run 3 consecutive Saturday races. The cost is $50 for the Super lates and $25 for the other 4 classes.  The KLASH is not a Nascar sanctioned event so a license is not required. If you need to make arraignment to pay for your license at payoff, please contact Donna at 269-720-2384

 

Kalamazoo Speedway’s First Pre-Season Test Postponed Until Sunday, April 6

Mike-Brooks17

Mike Brooks

Kalamazoo Speedway’s first Pre-Season Testing session has been postponed one day until this Sunday, April 6 due to weather.  Sunday’s forecast shows sunny and 60 degess with no wind, which is substancially better than the forecast for Saturday.  The pits will open at noon and testing will go from 1-5pm.  Please note that due to the weather the track still does not have water and thus the main bathrooms in the grandstands will not be open.  There will also not be any concessions for the grandstands or pit area.

The Meet & Greet will take place as scheduled Saturday night from 6-10 at the Otsego Elks club.
