St. Johns, PA (11/15/2016) Many racers look forward to the end of the regular season so they have the opportunity to relax before rebuilding their cars. However, their urge and desire to hit track typically resurfaces very early in the year and with the winter season in full effect, there definitely isn’t much going on aside from indoor racing. Thanks to Evergreen Raceway and their “Triple Crown Series”, racers will have the opportunity to compete in the three race Enduro series, which has dates scheduled in January, February and March of 2017.
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 their 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).
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 ($150, $100, $75, $50 & $25). A champion from each division will be declared, plus the driver with the best average finish after all three events will be deemed the Triple Crown winner and will receive $500.
In the result of a points tie, the driver with the most wins or highest average overall finish in the three events will earn the highest spot.
The trophies and payout will be distributed at a track picnic, which will take place in the spring.
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, drivers will pull pills for their starting positions. All pre-registered drivers will start ahead of those who were not pre-registered. Any pre-registered driver(s) 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.
