MLRA Increases Championship Point Fund
WHEATLAND, Mo. – Lucas Oil Midwest Latemodel Racing Ass’n series officials have announced a sizable bump in the season ending championship point fund.
In the past 25 seasons, the highest fund ever paid was $10,000 to the year-end champion. For 2014, the dollar figure at the top has jumped 50 percent to $15,000. The hefty Winner’s Circle Program is still in place providing tow money to the top 10 drivers with perfect attendance in the championship standings.
The only adjustment in eligibility requirements for 2014 is participation in 80 percent of the series sanctioned events is required to be eligible for post-season awards, including cash and contingencies.
“The Lucas Oil MLRA was extremely solid when we purchased it,” commented Series Director Dan Robinson. “However, we knew with Lucas Oil’s support we would like to add and expand a few of the incentives to follow our tour. Last year we brought on several new marketing partners and this year even more, so we are excited to finally release this bit of news. We knew the schedule would be more demanding this year, and hopefully we will continue to be able to offer more and more incentives to our drivers.”
