SEEKONK, Mass. — Tri Track Open Modified Series presented by All Phases Renovations officials have announce a lucrative purse structure and multiple special awards for this season.
The base purse for each of the six events will total more than $40,000, with an additional $1,000 in contingency awards available at each event. The series will also offer a point fund at the end of the season.
“With the help of some of our dedicated sponsors and the support we have received from Modified teams and fans we are happy to present the purse structure and some of our special awards for the new season,” Wayne Darling, managing partner of the Tri Track Open Modified Series, said. “We are looking forward to getting the season started in just a few weeks on May 1 at Monadnock Speedway.”
Each Tri Track Open Modified Series event will pay a minimum of $6,000 to win. Seekonk Speedway’s Open Wheel Wednesday will pay $10,000 to win, just like it has for its previous 15 events. Additional opportunities for sponsorship are available to boost the winning purse for additional events.
Second-place for each race will pay $3,250, while the third-place finisher will earn $2,600. Fourth and fifth will earn $2,200 and $2,000, respectively. Once qualified for the feature race, drivers will be chasing a minimum of $1,000 to start.
Continuing Tri Track tradition, those drivers who are pre-registered for each event, but do not qualify into the race, will earn $500 as “go home” funds. Those who were not pre-registered will collect $300 if they don’t qualify.
On top of the purse structure, contingency awards are also in place for the season. Courtesy of Pepsi, the Pepsi Challenge returns with $300 going to each driver that wins a qualifying heat or consi race. Jerico Performance Products debuts as a sponsor of Tri Track with a $300 award per event for the driver that posts the fastest lap in each feature race. Green Construction, a returning partner, will provide a $500 Hard Charger award to the driver that advances the most positions from their starting spot during the feature.
