KIRKWOOD, NY – Tonarlo’s Restaurant has joined Shakelton Napa Auto & Truck Parts to add to the Modified driver loyalty program that was established this past weekend for the Modified Summer Slam. The first race of the Modified Summer Slam is this Sunday, April 9th. The race winner will earn a minimum of $2,000 for the 30 lap event. Race time is 5 p.m.
Tonarlo’s Restaurant in Conklin, New York will add a $250 bonus to each Summer Slam Modified race winner at the end of the 4 race program based on a loyalty incentive. If a team wins won of the four Modified features this season they will get another $250 by just attending all four events. This bonus will be added to the existing $500 bonus posted this past weekend by Shakelton NAPA Auto & Truck Parts.
In addition, a Modified $15 entry fee has been established for each race. All of that money raised will go to the drivers in positions 2 through 10 in the final points of the four race Sunday Summer Slam program. Tonarlo’s Restaurant and CG Racing will match that $15 entry per race to double the point fund money total for positions 2 through 10 in the final points. For the teams the point fund dollars are easily tracked simply by multiplying the number of teams entered at each race by $15. The Modified Summer Slam 4 race overall champion will earn $2,000.
This past weekend it was announced that Shakelton Napa Auto & Truck Parts will award a $500 bonus to each Summer Slam Modified winner at the conclusion of the 4 race program based on a loyalty performance. A team simply has to compete in all four Summer Slam Modified events to be eligible for the bonus. This would bring the winners share up to $2,500 for only 30 laps of racing action!
Other bonuses for the Modified teams will be announced this week as the everyone gears up for race number 1 of the 4 race Summer Slam. Last year Anthony Perrego and Modified rookie Brad Szulewski were co-champions of the Summer Slam. Race number one is this Sunday at 5 p.m.
Bonuses are also in place for the Sportsman teams that compete in the Modified program. Teams utilizing the Open Sportsman motors in the Modified field will also have the option of running the “sail panels” weekly. The weekly Open Sportsman cash bonuses will again continue this year to the top three finishers in the Modified field as follows: 1st – $150, 2nd – $125, 3rd – $100. Last season two Sportsman powered cars won feature events with the Modifieds at the quarter mile oval.
