The state championship payout will remain the same with a payout of $2,000.00 for 1st, $1,000 for 2nd along with a custom driver’s suit valued at $1,200.00. The National Championship will be 4 less races. Through NASCAR the Modifieds have an $8,500 point fund, and Sportsman $3,000 for track points.
Grandview Speedway will continue to offer their own point fund making the track one of very few that reward racers with two point fund payoffs at the end of the season.
Pit crew members wishing to purchase a NASCAR license will receive the same insurance at the highest amount of $1million coverage. However, if the crew chooses not to purchase a license for the remainder of the 2020 race season they can pay an extra $5.00 for each event, but will include less insurance coverage. If a driver or crew member chooses to purchase the temporary license they will receive the full insurance coverage for the night. Temporary licenses are available for $25.00 for one night, or $50 for 3 weeks.
All licenses must be shown at the pit window or there will be an extra $5 charge for pit admission.
