First through fifth in the final point standings will collect $6,000, $3,000, $2,700, $2,500, and $2,200 respectively. The big increase is the bonus for the next ten drivers in the point standings who compete in every SpeedWeek event. Those bonus payoffs will range from $1,800 to $1,000. All events must be completed for the total of $30,000 to be paid.

In the event of a tie for most top ten finishes, the highest driver in final points will receive the $1,000 bonus.  Drivers must compete in all events to qualify for the bonus. The 2022 SpeedWeek champion Brent Marks captured the award last year and was the only driver in recent memory to accomplish the feat. will offer bonus money for heat race action with the “Knockout Bonus”.
