Hickory Motor Speedway will Re-structure Late Model Events and Purse for 2016
6-25-2016
For Immediate release:
"Hickory Motor Speedway will make some changes to their 2016 race schedule/Late Model purse beginning this weekend June 25th, 2016 " stated General Manager Kevin Piercy.
With challenging car counts , Hickory Motor Speedway has made a decision to re-structure and add additional monies to the regular Saturday Night purse and Paramount Kia “Big 10” purse. Also, beginning this Saturday Night all NASCAR Whelen All American Series and Paramount “Big 10” Bojangles Late Models races will be 80 laps in length, with the regular Saturday night races for the NASCAR Whelen All American Series Bojangles Late Models to be twin 40 lappers.
“Racing is financially challenging in all aspects of the sport, from fielding a car, marketing, sponsorship and balancing the budget of the track ” Piercy stated, " You have to be willing to make changes when necessary, As a race track we have to continue to be sensitive to the needs of the competitors and work hard to balance the cost of racing here with the eventual return.” Our goal is to make sure that our competitors know that we realize the challenges for them as with the race track, and we appreciate their support at Hickory Motor Speedway.
The restructuring in the purse and additional monies will increase the NASCAR Whelen All American Series Bojangles Late Models to at least $400.00 back through tenth.
