St. Johns, PA (12/4/2016) Since the announcement of their upcoming “Triple Crown Series” for Enduro drivers to have a little fun during the off season, Evergreen Raceway has been busy with ongoing track improvements in preparation for the much anticipated wintertime series. The excitement and momentum has been building, which helped bring additional sponsors to the table, bringing additional incentives for the racers.
The “Triple Crown Series” will be a points paying event and the top five finishers in each 4-Cylinder and 6/8-Cylinder Enduro will receive a payout and trophy, in accordance with Evergreen’s Enduro payout schedule, which is listed on the speedway website. Drivers will receive one point per position based on where they finish after tech inspection (one point per position. Ex: 20 cars, winner gets 20 pts, 2nd gets 19, etc).
Thanks to former track champion, Dale Fey, and his business, Wheel’s Bar & Grill, ad additional $100 will be given to the Four Cylinder Triple Crown Series champion. An additional $250 was donated by an anonymous sponsor as well. With those sponsors added to the Four Cylinder Triple Crown champion, along with the $500 prize put up by the speedway, the Four Cylinder Trip Crown champion will take home an impressive $850.
The donations, however, continued to roll in. An anonymous sponsor also added $100 to the Four Cylinder race winner for each event during the three race series.
Following the conclusion of the third and final event of the series in March, the top 10 in points in each division will receive trophies for their efforts and the top five will receive a payout:
4-Cylinders: 1. $150 2. $100 3. $75 4. $50 5. $25
6/8-Cylinders: 1. $150 2. $100 3. $75 4. $50 5. $25
Thanks to Fey, the Four Cylinder drivers that finish second through fifth in points will each receive a $25 gift certificate for Wheel’s Bar & Grill.
Aside from a champion being declared in each division, the driver with the best average finish after all three events in each of the two divisions will be deemed the Triple Crown winner. It is very possible that the three race champion will also be the Triple Crown champ. In the event of a points tie, the driver with the most wins or highest average overall finish in the three events will earn the highest spot.
With the additional sponsorship, the Four Cylinder Triple Crown Champion will receive $850 and the 6/8-Cylinder Triple Crown champion will take home $500.
The trophies and payout will be distributed at a track picnic following the series. The location and time will be announced in during the winter.
Three Enduro events are slated for Saturday, January 7 (Snow Ball 100s), Saturday, February 11 (Winter Blues 100s) and Saturday, March 18 (March Madness Enduros).
Each event will take place, rain, snow, sleet or shine. An event will only be postponed if the weather and road conditions to the track are simply too miserable.
Drivers can save $10 by pre-registering. The pre-registration fee is $40 per event. If drivers are not pre-registered on race day, the fee to compete is $50.
Upon arrival at the track, pre-registered drivers will pull pills for their starting positions. Drivers that register on race day will not pull pills for starting positions. Instead, they will line up behind the pre-registered drivers in the order in which they registered. Any drivers who are not present for the drivers meeting will have to start at the rear of the field. No exceptions.
The pit gates will swing open for all of the series events at 10 AM. The drivers meeting will take place at 12 noon and racing will kick off at 12:30 PM.
Grandstand admission for each event is just $5. Pit admission is $25 and the transponder rental fee is $10.
The rules, payout and pre-registration list are at EvergreenRacewayPark.com.
The concession stand at the track will be open for business during all of the events.
