Over $8,000 is up for grabs to RaceSaver Sprint Car teams (which will be converging upon LSS from throughout the region!) and there is no entry fee or increased pit charge.

In the event that there are RaceSaver teams that don't qualify for the feature race (24 starters) July 28, they will each receive $100 in non-qualifiers money.
There are several teams that have indicated they are traveling a distance to come to this event, so we are guaranteeing this additional purse in the event there is a B-feature.
Reminder, this is a RaceSaver sanctioned race and it will follow RaceSaver.com rules; so plan to have your engine teched for compliance. SST or STS RR tires are your option.
We would like each driver to state which Series they are representing when they sign in (LBS, STS or SST); as the top finishing driver in each 'series' will receive a $100 cash bonus, as previously advertised.
