NAPA adds programs and payout to legendary Gopher 50 – Extra $ up for grabs for drivers and fans!
SPRING VALLEY, MN – July16, 2015: The 36th running of the legendary NAPA Auto Parts Gopher 50 is just around the corner and the great folks at NAPA have the “Know How” to keep things interesting.
Over the years what was once just another race has become one of the most anticipated must see events throughout the country. Fans travel from near and far to see the best in the business chase after one of the most prestigious titles and unique trophies the industry has to offer.
In honor of the support that the event has received over the years from the fans and driver alike NAPA Auto Parts has put together a new appreciation program.
World of Outlaw Late Model and USRA Modified drivers competing in the event are invited to the NAPA Auto Parts autograph session up in the grandstand area from 5:15-5:45. Any competing driver who signs autographs for 15 minutes will be eligible for a $250 bonus! The bonus will be awarded to the highest finishing eligible driver in each divisions feature event. But that’s not all…
Fans will be given a ticket to vote for the driver in each division whom they feel will be in victory lane at the end of the night. Each driver at the autograph session will have a NAPA pail in front of them. Fans can simply throw their ticket in the pail of the driver they choose.
The winning driver in each division will draw from their corresponding pail in victory lane selecting one lucky fan that picked them to win. That lucky fan will also take home a $250 VISA gift card redeemable anywhere VISA is accepted.
NAPA Auto Parts will also be providing teams in both divisions with a “Bonus Bucks” program. Teams who sport the legendary logo on their car will hold the golden ticket to some extra cash. Heat race winners will receive a $100 bonus while each feature winner will pocket an additional $1,000! NAPA will be providing participating teams with the program sticker prior to the start of the event.
This means that the winner of the World of Outlaw Late Model a-main event has the opportunity to take home a total of $11,350!
The USRA Modifieds were originally slated to pay $2,000 to win…but that changed last weekend when one of Deer Creek Speedway greatest fans and modified fanatic handed promoters a handful of cash totaling $1,000 and stated, “I want it to go to the NAPA Auto Parts Gopher 50 Modified Champion.”
If you add it all up the winner of the USRA Modified a-main event now has the opportunity to take home $4,350!
