With becoming a member at just 20 cars the series offers a $1,000 payout for $110 dollar entry along with other cool bonus for racers.

More perks is the contingency program put together for the racers with bonuses from JEGS Mail Order, VP Racing Fuels, Auto Meter Products, JKR Racing / Lucas Oil, K&N Filters, Comp Cams and The Contingency Connection Racers Rewards program to offer racers gift certificates towards products for a win or runner-up at each event.

New for this year the series has also partnered with POR15, SRS Fitness, JA Pest Control, Marc Marsico Law & Keith Mayers Motorsports to offer the “Bounty Award” that will see racers gunning to take down the 2019 Champs and winners of the previous events for a cash bonus paid on the spot.
