Promoter Announces $40,000 Two-Day Race To Open Season
The 2001 race season will start off with a bang in Scotland County as the Spring Race Rumble will offer a total purse of more than $40,000 to winners in the two-day event scheduled for May 12-13.
Six different race classes will be competing at the Scotland County Raceway in the opening event that will kick-off a new schedule of weekly Saturday night races.
The late model division will pay $4,000 to the winning driver with pay out for 24 places. The A-modified division will garner the second highest prize with $2,000 going to the winner.
The B-modified, stock car, hobby-stocks and two-man cruiser raises will each pay out $1,000 to the first place finisher.
Promoter Ron Anderson stated the prize money is based on a minimum field of 24 cars per class. Any division without at least 24 cars will have a reduced prize schedule.
