Story By: MARTIN BÉLANGER / CORNWALL MOTOR SPEEDWAY – CORNWALL, ONT – The 5th edition of the Race for the Cure Sportsman Series is looking to be the most lucrative boosting a $10,000 point’s fund that should attract the best Sportsman drivers from the area! A few new ideas were added to the nightly events that will certainly spice up things for drivers and also race fans!
$10,000 Point Fund!
Steve Morris of TAS Racing continues his great support to this Series that was implemented in 2016. For the 5th edition, the point’s fund will be the richest ever with the Series champion getting a nice $5,000, second will receive $3,000 and third $2,000 for a total of $10,000. Each event will again 100-lap races with the winner getting $2,000. The first round will be on Sunday, May 24, the second race will be on Sunday, August 2nd and the final round will on Sunday, August 23.
Race fans will have a say in the possible outcome of the 100-lap feature events as 2 draws are added during the event. The first one will be during the pre-race presentation as the cars are rolling on the speedway, a fan will draw a number either 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 or 60, this will be the lap that the feature will have competition yellow, at that point, a second fan will draw a number from 0, 5, 10, 15 or 20, this number will be in the inversion for the rest of the feature event. As a consolation prize, the race leader at the competition yellow will receive a Hoosier Tire plus 5 points towards the Series championship. This added format will bring a lot excitement to our fans will keep drivers on the edge of their seats. Time trials, heats and top 12 redraw will still be part of the qualifying format.
Get Your Stickers…You Could Win!
Race for the Cure stickers will be available for the fans and we encourage people to put them on their personal cars, we will have people walking around the speedway parking area and identify cars with them, these lucky people will win a pair of tickets for an upcoming event at the speedway courtesy of Morris of TAS Racing. A great way to promote the Series and have a chance to win a prize!
Aiming For Another $10,000 In Fundraising!
Fans and drivers have been very generous throughout the first 4 editions as more than $35,000 were donated to women that are in treatments against cancer. We have reached the $10,000 plateau in the last 2 years. Fundraising events and initiatives will go through the year in order to reach that objective.
