SARVER, PA (Pittsburgh Racing Now) – Lernerville Speedway is gearing-up for the 2020 season by increasing race purses and the point fund.
Lernerville is teaming up with the law firm of Phil DiLucente and Associates to create the “Pad the Purse Program”. The program, valued at $30,000, adds $2,000 to current purses on Fab4 Friday nights.
Here’s how the program is going to work:
- $2,000 will be provided for additional purse money to be split equally between two of the four divisions ($1,000) for each division, to be awarded equally to drivers who finish in the top ten of their main event at $100.00 each position.
The two divisions that receive the additional purse money will be determined by a pill draw which will take place after all heat races and before all main events take place.
The pill draw will be done by the sponsor of the program or his designee.
In the event that a division is drawn three races in a row, another pill draw will occur, and that division will split the $1,000 with the third division 50/50. Each of those divisions will receive $500 to be awarded equally to each of the first ten feature finishers in the amount of $50.
Any division which receives an award of Pad the Purse money three races in a row in any amount goes back to zero for the next race and the “three in a row” determination will resume.
If there are less than ten feature finishers as determined by track rules, the Pad the Purse money which would have been awarded to the nonexistent finishers will be moved into the annual points fund and divided per the rules described below.
If a rain out occurs, and the rained-out race is not made up, the $2,000 designated for that race will be moved into the annual points fund and divided per the rules described below.
Points Fund Guidelines:
- $2,000 will be added to the points fund, divided equally among all four divisions ($500 for each division), then awarded equally among the top ten finishers at $50 dollars each.
Any money moved into the points fund from the Fab4 races will be divided equally among all four divisions and then divided equally among the top ten finishers of each division.
