“King Of The Creek” Record Payout For 2018Cole Queensland
Spring Valley, MN (April 5) By: Todd Narveson
The Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, MN along with title sponsor A&A Electric & Underground of Kasson, MN are excited to announce the return of the “King Of The Creek.” The A&A Electric & Underground “King Of The Creek” will be presented by National Fleet Graphics, Rory’s Home Improvement, Weber NAPA Auto Parts of Leroy, MN & Osage, IA, Fast Shafts, Parts and K.C. Lawn Care.
It will be open to any driver in the five weekly classes that compete at Deer Creek Speedway. There will be a minimum $8,000 point fund that will be divided among all registered drivers at the end of the playoffs. Here is how the program works for those who wish to participate.
Any driver in any class is eligible to register and the cost of registration is $50. The minimum point fund is set at $8,000 but will increase by $50 per car for every car over the count of 50 that is involved. The points will be awarded by feature finish position only and no heat race points will be awarded.
Drivers will also earn one passing point for each car passed from their original posted starting position. If there are more than 21-cars in the feature race of your class, you will be awarded one bonus point. However, if you happen to be disqualified from, or do not take a green flag in any qualifying race, you are then not eligible to earn passing points. Points will only be awarded on the race nights that all five classes are racing.
Qualifying will start on June 2 and end on July 28. Then on August 4 the playoffs will begin. The “King Of The Creek” will be crowned on August 25. Of the minimum $8,000 purse, the champion will receive a cool $1,000 and 10th spot will receive $225. Every driver involved this year will receive a minimum of $25. That prize money could rise if more than 50-drivers are involved.
Also the first 50-entries to the “King Of The Creek” program will receive a $25 Fast Shafts certificate. The champion will receive a new driveshaft from Fast Shafts for their efforts.
There are more marketing opportunities available for this program. If you or your business are interested in more information on this program please contact the track office at (507) 754-6107. All of the money will go directly to the drivers who enter.
