Big Point Fund On The Line In Mega Late Model Series

AUSTIN, Texas — This season’s Castrol FloRacing Night in America point fund has been finalized.

The champion will receive $75,000 if they have perfect attendance at all contested events or a guaranteed $50,000 without perfect attendance, which is up from $30,000 in 2022.

Additionally, the second-place finisher will receive $20,000 (up from $15,000 in 2022), while third in the final standings has been increased to $10,000.

The total point payout for the series is as follows:
1)$50,000 ($75,000 championship with perfect attendance)










A driver’s best 10 finishes will count toward the series championships. Apart from the championship bonus posted for perfect attendance, drivers are not required to enter a minimum number of events to be eligible for the season-ending point-fund.

With as much as $137,000 total point fund on the line, series officials are already busily preparing for the third year for the mega miniseries, which will see 13 races held at 12 venues in nine states.

The schedule includes 11 races paying $23,023-to-win along with a pair of events during the third annual Peach State Classic weekend, which will respectively post a $20,000 top prize as well as a $54,054 winners check for the season finale.

In total, over $961,000 in purse money will be on the line.

The 2023 campaign opens for the second-straight year with a doubleheader at Eldora (Ohio) Speedway and Brownstown (Ind.) Speedway on April 18-19.

A busy month of May finds the miniseries kicking off the second Illinois Speedweeks on May 10 at Spoon River Speedway (Banner, Ill.) before invading Lincoln (Ill.) Speedway on May 11. Notably, the series doubleheader will be followed by a Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series doubleheader at Farmer City (Ill.) Speedway and Fairbury (Ill.) Speedway on May 12-13.

After seeing the miniseries’ scheduled debut at Josh King’s Florence (Ky.) Speedway washed away in 2021, the famed, high-speed oval returns to the 2023 schedule with a $23,023-to-win program on May 31.

After the standard summer break spanning June to August, the series fires back up for the home stretch on Sept. 12 with the fourth annual One For The Road at Fairbury (Ill.) Speedway.

The month of September is wrapped up with a Sept. 27 visit to Tyler County (W. Va.) Speedway as the quarter-mile oval returns to the tour after a one-year hiatus.

Meanwhile, the miniseries invades the Smoky Mountains on Oct. 10 at the McCarter family promoted, 411 (Tenn.) Motor Speedway followed by a Oct. 12 visit to Ray Cook’s Tri-County (N.C.) Racetrack for the annual Tarheel 53.

For the second-straight year the curtain will drop on the tour with a doubleheader at the Pollard family-owned Senoia (Ga.) Raceway on Nov. 10-11.

The weekend includes a $20,000-to-win opening event followed by a $54,054-to-win finale.
