by Bryan Hulbert
TULSA, Okla. -- The ASCS 305 national schedule has added an addition race in New Mexico, heading to Cardinal Motor Speedway in Eunice, New Mexico on Friday June 29th before running at White Sands Speedway in Tularosa, New Mexico on June 30th.
Events at Cardinal Motor Speedway will feature a $1,250 to win feature event with a challenge for the drivers that qualify for the night’s redraw. Spearheaded by Jars Inc., an Oilfield Equipment company in Hobbs, New Mexico, each driver in the first four rows could potentially have a chance at a cash bonus.
If a driver in the first row is willing to forfeit their starting position and drop to the end of the line-up, that driver will get a $5,000 bonus if they can come back and win the night’s feature event. If no one in the front row accepts the challenge, the amount goes to $4,000 for anyone in the second row, $3,000 for anyone in the third row, and finally $2,000 for anyone in the fourth row.
Events at White Sands Speedway will feature a slightly increased payout at $1,500 to win for the night’s feature event.
