THE “CONTENDERS RACE” IS BACK!
Presented by Carson Motorsports of Sistersville, WV!
In 2018 the MEGA 100 added a first ever ‘contenders race’ to the event. The result was 20+ area ‘contenders’ battling for their first ever Modified feature win! At the end Reedsville, OH’s Chad Roush picked up the huge victory and the guaranteed starting spot on Friday night!
In 2019 the ‘Contenders Race’ is back and WAY bigger! A purse increase that will award a career first modified winner $1,000 dollars for his triumph.
The “Contenders Race” will once again be part of the weekend kick off on Thursday May 30th’s card. The “Contenders Race” presented by Carson Motorsports will be made up of any modified/b-mod/sport mod/hotmod racer who has never won a Super Late Model or Modified A-Main at any track throughout the country. (Any past late model race crate or steel block that succeeded $3000 in earnings will also rule out participation).
The event will be run by pill draw heat races and a 20 lap feature with the winner also earning a guaranteed starting spot in the “MEGA 100!”. Drivers are requested to submit their intentions to run this event in advance so that officials can check the entries to ensure that no LM/Mod features have been won.
Thursdays ‘Contenders Race’ ONLY will be a 100% open tire rule in an effort for anyone who wants to be part of the MEGA weekend to come participate in this event. All other events including the ‘Sunoco Shootout’ will be run under complete UMP DirtCar and Renegade of Dirt rules.
