By Brian Liskai:(Attica, OH) Attica Raceway Park has announced adjustments to the 2009 purse structure for the weekly divisions.
The 410 sprint A-main purse will be $10,930 for the 20-car field with $2,200 to win and $225 to start. The Fultz Fabrications & Speedshop UMP Late Models will vie for $1,000 to win the A-main and $160 to start the 20-car A-main. The A-main purses for the Fremont Fence 305 Sprints and dirt trucks will not change from 2008 levels.
“Entering our fourth season at Attica Raceway Park we felt the adjustments are necessary to continue to build our strong weekly program,” said John Bores, ARP Promoter, and Rex LeJeune, ARP Operations Manager.
“We know things are tough for everyone, but this will enable Attica to provide the fans with great racing in all four divisions in 2009,” added Bores.
The biggest adjustment in purse structure came in the 14 weekly feature events for the 410 winged sprints. LeJeune said the good news is the 410 sprints will compete in five big shows in 2009, including the World of Outlaws and four O’Reilly All Star Circuit of Champion events for a total A-main purses of over $300,000 for the season.
“Add in the 11 races toward the Kistler Race Products FAST (Fremont/Attica Sprint Title) Cup and the 410 sprint racing remains very strong in 2009,” said LeJeune.
