Jimmy McCune - WEBSITE

This Saturday night, June 7 Kalamazoo Speedway will treat race fans to not one, not two, but three premier divisions of racing in one single night! The night will be highlighted by the only 2014 appearance of the Auto Value Bumper to Bumper Winged Super Sprint Series. The Auto Value Super Sprints (AVSS) bring down force pavement racing to racetracks all around the country. The AVSS series features 410 cubic inch powered winged sprint cars that race on paved racetracks from 1/4 mile to 5/8 mile in length. The cars race on Hoosier Tires and reach top speeds well over 140 mph. Kalamazoo Speedway will be the second stop on the AVSS tour this season. Drivers expected to attend include Jimmy McCune, Jason Blonde, Joe Swanson, Chris Neuenschwander, Jacob Wilson and several more.

The NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Outlaw Super Late Model division at Kalamazoo Speedway has seen some unbelievable racing this year with five different winners in the first seven races of the season. This Saturday night the action promises to continue with the running of the “Shifters 50”. Mike “Bubba” Brooks is the only driver to win more than once and that has vaulted him to the top of the point standings as we head into the summer stretch. His point lead is slim 44 points however over AJ Foote, who picked up his first victory in the division two weeks back. John Chapman, Luke Krick and Todd Harrington all have had impressive seasons and sit third through fifth in the standings but none of them have visited victory lane yet. One driver that has visited victory lane is John Long, who won the “Scott’s Cards 50” three weeks ago but has not returned to the track since then. Long is expected to make his return this Saturday night and once again be a contender for the victory.

Also making their only 2014 appearance at Kalamazoo Speedway this Saturday night will be the Top Speed Modified Tour. This series has seen some fantastic car counts this season and Saturday night should be no different. Upwards of 40 Modifieds are expected to challenge the high banks of the Zoo. Drivers expected to contend for the victory include Jordan Pruitt, Derrick Griffin, Travis Eddy, Dave Dobbins, Chad Poole and many more.

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.”

All the information for the Money in the Bank 125 can be found at http://www.berlinraceway.com/documents/MoneyintheBankform2014-1.pdf. Information on Kalamazoo Klash XXII will be announced in the coming weeks on http://www.kalamazoospeedway.com/.
