PENN CAN MODIFIED CHAMPION TO RECEIVER $5000…OTHER INCENTIVES ALSO ANNOUNCED
Susquehanna, PA…Penn Can Speedway operators Al Wilcox and Reed Miller have been hard at work over the off-season with speedway sponsors and are pleased to announce a number of lucrative incentives to teams racing at Penn Can Speedway in 2013. The programs will benefit all racing divisions currently competing at the three eighths mile oval.
Penn Can Speedway has always paid one of the most generous purses in the area in all divisions. This will not change for the coming season. The track has also provided a very decent point fund to all the teams racing at the speedway. Over the years speedway management has spread the allotted money out over all divisions. Penn Can has also distributed the money throughout the top ten. This also will not change in 2013.
With the help of speedway sponsors, Wilcox and Miller are pleased to announce that the winner of the modified title in 2013 will receive $5000. Other positions throughout the modified top ten will also see their point fund money increase as well. The other divisions at Penn Can will also be in for an increase in their point funds. Both the 602 sportsman division and the street stock division winners will be paid a minimum of $1000 for their championships. The four cylinder, factory stocks, and Xcel modified winners will be guaranteed a minimum of $250 for their titles.
Don’s Automotive Mall will also be the title sponsor of a unique incentive program in all divisions. If any driver can win the feature race from outside of the top twelve, a winner’s bonus will be paid. In the modified division the bonus for any regular Friday night feature will be $100. In all other divisions, the bonus will be $50.
NEP Wireless and NEP Telephone return for another season sponsoring the 602 sportsman division in a series of four special events. Each of these special Friday night features will have an increases payout thanks to the NEP operation out of Forest City, Pennsylvania.
Adams Cable Service returns in 2013 with another incentive program for the modified division. The newly established program will target modified teams that have not finished in the top ten in points over the last three seasons. The driver outside of the top ten that scores the highest modified point total will be rewarded the $500 bonus at the end of the season. If that driver happens to be a rookie by Penn Can Speedway standards, the Adams Cable bonus will double.
The speedway will also be part of the American Racer Cup for both modified and sportsman teams. The program has some changes from past seasons. In the modified division, the number of tires given away at Penn Can to the modified teams has increased from ten to fifteen. A tire will be given away each night from Memorial Day to Labor Day each week. The sportsman have been added to the program in 2013. While their program is slightly different for the first season, drivers in this division will benefit from their membership.
Trackside Products will once again step forward sponsoring a new incentive program for the modified, 602 sportsman, and street stocks in 2013. The new program will be for heat winners. Every month the heat winners will be entered into a drawing for an American Racer Tire.
