SELINSGROVE/PORT ROYAL, PA – In an effort to build the series even stronger in 2017, Moon Shine Camo has announced an increase in funding to the 2017 Port Royal and Selinsgrove Speedways Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Dirt Late Model Challenge Series.
Round Two of the six-race series will again feature three events at each track to determine the overall series champion.
As was the case last year, a guaranteed $3,500 point fund will be paid out to the top five drivers in series points regardless of how many shows get completed.
And also just like last year, drivers who finish in positions six through 10 in points will receive worthy contingency prizes for their efforts.
But new this year will be a $250 award given to each driver who enters competition at every show but who also fails to place inside the top 10 in the series point standings despite their perfect attendance.
Moon Shine Camo announced the increase in the series point fund Friday night as Selinsgrove Speedway officials wrapped up their annual speed show at the Susquehanna Valley Mall in Hummels Wharf.
The super late models will be at one track or the other on the selected challenge series dates. Port Royal will kick off the competition April 29 and will also host series races July 8 and September 8. Selinsgrove’s three challenge dates will include May 20, July 22, and Aug. 12.
Moon Shine Camo was founded in 2010 by Beavertown entrepreneur Travis Mattern and is one of the fastest growing Lifestyle Camo™ designers and camouflage clothing distributors in the country for outdoor sporting enthusiasts.
Each of the six races will be 25 laps in distance and will pay $2,000 to win and $200 to start.
In last year’s inaugural series, five of the six races were completed with 61 different late model drivers participating in at least one race. Jeff Rine of Danville, a Selinsgrove regular, was the only repeat feature winner with two victories. Rine clinched the championship with 236 points over Port Royal regular Andy Haus of Hamburg with 219 points. Single wins in the series went to Hayes Mattern of Beavertown and Coleby Frye of Dover.
