SANTA MARIA, Calif. – On Saturday the USAC West Coast Sprint Car Series will make their first of six appearances at Kings Speedway for the second annual Southwest Contractors Billet Cup.

The event will feature a special point’s format with a fully inverted 30-lap main event paying $1,500-to-win and $200-to-start. In addition, an extra $8,350 point fund with $2,000 awarded to the highest point driver will be up for grabs.

With more than $16,000 available in total purses and contingencies, the Billet Cup will have one of the biggest paydays of the campaign.

Showcasing a format similar to the popular Trophy Cup, Promoters Chris Kearns and Scott Woodhouse are offering $3,500 to the driver that can win from the rear of the field. For placing last in the feature, that driver will get a minimum payout of $400. Each driver that attends the special event will earn 50 championship points and the entry fee is $50. Both the main event purse and point fund are listed at the end of this release.

Race points will be earned at every race of the Billet Cup. The program will start off with a qualifying session as drivers record the faster of two green flag laps. Heat races will be 10-laps, inverting the top six cars in qualifying points.
