ATTICA, Ohio – Attica Raceway Park will once again reward the loyal race teams that support “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speedplant with a great point fund and increased weekly payout.
The teams in the O’Reilly Auto Parts 410 Sprints will battle for a total point fund of $22,000 in 2016 with the champion taking home $8,000. The Summit Racing Equipment UMP Late Model champion will pocket $5,000 with a total of $15,000 going to the top 10 in points. The champion of the Fremont Fence 305 Sprints will once again collect $3,000 with a total of $10,000 being divided up among the top 10 in points. With only 7 races scheduled for the dirt trucks in 2016, there will not be a point fund.
“Last year we celebrated our 10th year of promoting Attica Raceway Park with a record point fund. We have spread out some of what we paid out in the 2015 point fund into our three weekly purses for 2016,” said ARP Promoter John Bores.
The weekly 410 sprints will pay $3,000 to win while the late models will pay $1,200 to win and the 305 sprints will pay $750 to win. Attica Raceway Park will hand out over $600,000 in A-main prize money in 2016.
The complete purses and point funds can be found at www.atticaracewaypark.com under the purse tab at the top. Also in 2016, the weekly 410 sprints will group qualify for every event accept for Friday, July 1.
Attica Raceway Park kicks off the 2016 racing season on Friday, March 25 with a rain date if needed of Saturday, March 26. The 410 and 305 sprints and late models will be in action.
