INDIANAPOLIS – Extra bonus money has been thrown into the pot for the 32nd edition of NOS Energy Drink Indiana Sprint Week, set for July 18-27.
The 10-day stretch marks one of the busiest and most prestigious runs of the year for the AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car Series.
ProSource, out of Grand Saline, Texas, has added Hard Work and Passing Master awards to the festivities, totaling $2,000. The Hard Work award will pay $200 per night to the slowest qualifying driver who transfers into the night’s feature event.
At the conclusion of the week, the points will be tallied up and the overall Passing Master – who accumulates the most positions gained from his or her original starting spot during each feature event throughout the course of Indiana Sprint Week – will earn $400.
Provisional feature starters each night are excluded from gaining points toward the Passing Master standings.
B&W Auto Mart from Bloomington, Ind., has added a $100 Hard Charger bonus to the driver advancing the most positions from his or her starting spot during each night’s feature event throughout the eight-race series.
These bonuses will be added to the season-long sponsors for USAC competition, including NOS Energy Drink – the title sponsor of Indiana Sprint Week as well as the USAC National Midget Series, and AMSOIL, the title sponsor of the USAC National Sprint Car Series.
Fatheadz Eyewear awards each fast qualifier with $100 throughout the entire 2019 season while Simpson Race Products, Competition Suspension, Inc., Auto Meter and Indy Race Parts are on-board throughout the entire season as heat race sponsors.
Wilwood Brakes sponsors the driver who finishes 13th in each national feature event.
Saldana Racing Products will boost the spirits of the first non-transfer each night (the driver finishing one position out of the final transfer spot during the night’s semi-feature.
In addition, Saldana will reward any national sprint car and national midget driver who completes a sweep of all the racing events for the night. The driver must record the fastest time during qualifying, win his or her heat race, then conclude the night with a victory.
KSE Racing Products will run through the pack to honor each event’s hard charger (the driver who advances the most positions from their original starting spot during the night’s main event).
Roger and Barb Tapy, through R&B Truckers, will supply a Hoosier right-rear tire to the driver who qualifies 13th quickest during every AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car event.
