GREENWOOD, Neb. – American Sprint Car Series officials have merged the Casey’s Fall Brawl with the Bobby Parker Memorial on Saturday after Friday’s event at I-80 Speedway was canceled due to rain.
The event will have the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network going head-to-head with the Nebraska 360 Sprint Car Series and will feature a higher paying event with the A-Main purse raised to $4,000 to win, $600 to start in addition to the $8,000 in cash and contingencies already in place.
The increased purse is thanks to the efforts of I-80 Speedway owner, Joe Kosiski, and Nebraska 360 Sprint Car Series President, Dennis Parker.
“It means a lot to these teams for Joe and Dennis to get together and make this weekend work. Between the purse increase, lap money, and the extra cash up for grabs, they’ve put together a single night that’ll top $40,000 for these teams,” stated ASCS National Director, Matt Ward.
Positions 1, 2, 3, 5, 10, and 15 will be awarded lap money throughout Saturday’s 35-lap A-Main. Money will be paid for the number of laps contested, meaning if attrition sees the field ending with 14 cars, the driver scored in 15th will have been paid for the number of laps completed prior to the DNF.
Along with the lap money, Speedway Motors and the Nebraska 360 Sprint Car Series will offer a $200 Gift Certificate for the night’s hard charger. To be eligible, a driver cannot take a provisional. KnoxVegas Campground will also give $500 cash. Knoxville Raceway has also put up $300 to the driver who leads the most laps.
