Winchester 400 Boasts Large Payout

WINCHESTER, Ind. — The 52nd Running of the Winchester 400 at Winchester Speedway will boast a total cash purse of $104,500, plus series contingency awards.

The ASA STARS National Tour heads to Winchester on October 15 to contest the event, in which will also serve as the season finale for the ASA/CRA Super Series. 

The Winchester 400 winner is guaranteed a $20,000 payday, with an additional potential of $14,500 in track and series bonus money available. The potential $34,500 payday makes the Winchester 400 one of the richest pavement Late Model events of the year.

A combination of series awards and special awards offered by the track provide the potential for the big payday, including $1,000 bonuses for the GoFas Pole Award and for winning each of the first two stages of the Winchester 400.

Track awards include $6,000 in lap leader bonuses, a $2,000 bonus to the highest finishing Winchester 400 rookie, $1,500 awards for highest finishing crate motored car and top traveling non-regular/non-race winner.
