In an announcement yesterday evening, Keith Haney announced a couple of new additions for the 2019 Mid-West Pro Mod Series. We’ve been working in close proximity with MWPM since early on, covering the racing live, so we perk up when we hear any kind of change or addition to the program. And it’s an addition, all right: for 2019, two new classes will be fielded: Top Sportsman and Top Dragster. Both classes are going to start out as a 16-car field with an entrance fee of $250, with payouts as such:
- Winner: $3,000
- Runner-Up: $1,000
- Semi-Finalist: $500
- Quarter-Finalist: $250
If there are less than nine cars in the field, the payouts will be halved. Normal testing costs the day or two prior to the event will still be in effect.
- The Radial Revenge Tour will not go forward for 2019 due to scheduling conflicts between Tyler Crossnoe’s Outlaw Street Car Reunion and Donald “Duck” Long’s Sweet 16 races.
- The September 13-14 race that was scheduled for Route 66 Raceway has had a venue change. That race will now be held at Memphis International Raceway.
- Outlaw Street Car Reunion: $15,000 to win, $3000 to win in Slammer, NO entry fee! There will also be an East Vs. West battle courtesy of Hoosier Tires. Top five west and east of Bowling Green, Kentucky will square off at Beech Bend under the lights on Friday for $10,000. That event can be pre-entered at raceoscr.com.
- The first race of the MWPM season has been shifted one week in advance due to scheduling conflicts. That event at Texas Motorplex will be held on March 8-9, 2019.
