GEORGETOWN, DE – The stakes have gone up for the ‘First State 40’ at Georgetown Speedway and the four-race ‘Colonial Clash Championship’ presented by DirtNation.
On Thursday, June 2, the touring Ultimate Super Late Model Series will make its debut at the First State half-mile oval in a combined effort with three neighboring Mid-Atlantic Region facilities, kicking off four consecutive nights of Super Late Model racing with lucrative purses and a hefty “mini-series” point fund.
The first ‘Colonial Clash Championship’ gets underway at Georgetown on June 2 when the Super Late Models battle for an increased $5,000 to win thanks to sponsor Bi-Rite Auto Sales of Seaford, Del. The 40-lap main offers $400 to take the green.
The complete race payout for the Super Late Model ‘First State 40’ at Georgetown is as follows: 1st) $5,000; 2nd) $2,500; 3rd) $1,500; 4th) $1,200; 5th) $1,000; 6th) $850; 7th) $750; 8th) $700; 9th) $600; 10th) $550; 11th) $500; 12th) $450; 13th) $425; 14th-24th) $400.
The Ultimate Super Late Model Series will break new ground in Delaware, making the furthest trek north in series history. However, racers will have plenty of incentive to make the tow.
Following the Georgetown event on Thursday, the ‘Colonial Clash Championship’ continues on Friday (June 3 – $5,000 to win) at Potomac Speedway in Budd’s Creek, Md., Saturday (June 4 – $20,000 to win) at Virginia Motor Speedway in Jamaica, Va., (for Ernie Shelton’s prestigious 39th annual USA 100) and concludes Sunday (June 5 – $5,000 to win) at Winchester (Va.) Speedway.
A boosted mini-series point fund of $17,000 will be distributed to the top-15 finishers in the four-race ‘Colonial Clash Championship’ as follows: Champion) $5,000; 2nd) $2,500; 3rd) $1,200; 4th) $1,000; 5th) $900; 6th) $800; 7th) $700; 8th) $700; 9th-15th) $600. *100 percent participation in the four races required to receive point fund
