RACINE, Ohio — The American Motor Racing Ass’n has stepped to the plate in bringing a potent 2013 points’ fund to the table for its members this racing season.
Over the past 19 years, the AMRA has paid out close to $700,000 in prizes and contingencies. This season AMRA will add $5,000 to the national weekly points payout for modifieds, paying back 35 positions in the amount of $30,000 overall with an additional $500 going to rookie of the year.
The late model point fund will now pay 15 places in the amount of $10,000, a dollar amount that raises AMRA payouts and contingency to right at $750,000 since its inception.
The modified champion will take home $5,000, while the late model champion will bring home $2,000. Work is ongoing in trying to attract more sponsors for the series. The AMRA is very excited about the possibilities of attracting more marketing partners and is working continuously to upgrade its marketing venues.
“We are established. We have been here for a very long time and the AMRA has paid out a great deal of money over time,” said Director of Racing Operations Scott Wolfe. “And, we will continue to be here in the future for our drivers, our owners, our promoters, and our fans.”
In another effort to bolster its point fund and make the organization more appealing to drivers, AMRA Modified members finishing 36th-thru-50th will receive one case of Champion 20w-50 Synthetic Blend Racing Motor Oil and a WIX Racing Oil Filter valued at $100 for their efforts in 2013.
This adds another $1,500 to the total points package for the modifieds, and rewards nearly one-third of the series’ members for their participation. In addition Two Brothers Motorsports has jumped on board with $1,000 for the “Two Brothers Motorsports Lucky 13” award paying the driver who is lucky enough in 2013 to finish in the 13th position an additional $1,000.
