BROWNSBURG, Ind. – Officials from the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 have announced its series schedule for next year as well as an increased point fund.
The All Stars will upgrade its year end points to a record setting $345,000, representing an increase of nearly 35 percent from 2021.
The All Star championship team will be awarded with an $80,000 first place prize, a $15,000 bump from 2021. The 2022 championship runner-up will be awarded with a $60,000 check, followed by a $50,000 sum for third, $40,000 for fourth, and $30,000 for fifth. Sixth through 12th in the standings will be awarded $20,000, $15,000, $12,000, $11,000, $10,000, $9,000, and $8,000, respectively.
“We’re really excited to get the schedule released so that our teams and fans can begin making their 2022 plans. To be able to expand the points fund next year is something that I am absolutely thrilled about,” said Tony Stewart, owner of the All Star Circuit of Champions. “We wouldn’t be able to do this without the extended support from our tracks and partners. I want to thank Mark Floreani and his team at FloRacing, Mobil 1, Kevin Rudeen, as well as our other great partners, track promoters and owners. It is humbling to see the continued interest from tracks that continue to grow our events, and partners that want to utilize our platform to promote their brands. This growth can be attributed to the team owners and drivers that support our series; we wouldn’t be in this position without them all.”
Highlighted with 56 dates across 11 states, the All Star agenda boasts a lineup of high profile events with all the series’ major blockbusters making their return. The list includes Attica Raceway Park’s points commencing Spring Nationals, Port Royal Speedway’s $29,000-to-win Bob Weikert Memorial and $55,000-to-win Tuscarora 50, Lincoln Speedway’s $20,000-to-win Dirt Classic, the highly touted $26,000 to win Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race, which moves to I-70 Motorsports Park, an annual visit to the sprint car capital of the world, Knoxville Raceway, and Ohio Sprint Speedweek capped with Portsmouth Raceway Park’s Dean Knittel Memorial awarding $20,554.
The Beach Brawl at Lake Ozark Speedway, awarding a total weekend winner’s share of $18,000, will also make its return to the All Star agenda, as well as the $10,000-to-win Keith Kauffman Classic at the Port Royal Speedway, the $10,000-to-win Night Before the Tuscarora 50, Williams Grove Speedway’s $10,000-to-win Memorial Day weekend event, and the season-ending Jim and Joanne Ford Classic at Fremont Speedway, padded by a $10,000-to-win finale.
New dates on the All Star campaign trail include Sharon Speedway’s Sharon Nationals, an $18,000-to-win weekend which is set to make its return on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 2-3, a pair of $12,000-to-win visits to Ransomville Speedway in Ransomville, N.Y., and Bridgeport Speedway in Swedesboro, N.J., and Atomic Speedway’s George Fisher Memorial / Freedom 40 awarding $15,000-to-win.
The All Stars will return to central upstate New York for the first time since 2019 and visit Outlaw Speedway, Utica-Rome Speedway, and Weedsport Speedway August 18-20 to challenge for $8,000, $10,000, and $8,000-to-win purses, respectively.
The series will make its first and second ever starts at Bloomsburg Fair Raceway in April and August. The facility is promoted by Port Royal promoter, Steve O’Neal.
“Fans will continue to see all of our staple events in 2022,” said Stewart. “It’s also important to continue to evaluate new opportunities and expand to new markets or re-visit tracks that we don’t necessarily get to race at every year. Ninety percent of the schedule is done by the end of October; it is a collaborative effort to get the remaining ten percent done. Much appreciation goes out to our track partners for working with us on the scheduling efforts for 2022.”
As tradition has it, series competition will begin in early February with a short stint of non-points action, kicking things off with a two-day visit to Senoia Raceway in Senoia, Ga., on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 4-5. The tour’s visit to the central Georgia venue, the weekend pair will award $8,000 and $10,000, respectively.
Following its visit to The Peach State, All Star action will continue with a pair of DIRTcar Nationals appearances at Volusia Speedway Park on Feb. 8-9, followed by another pair of Florida stops at East Bay Raceway Park on Feb. 14-15. All four visits to Volusia and East Bay will award $6,000 top prizes.
