One of the last remaining questions with respect to the NMCA’s new Holley EFI Factory Super Cars class was the purse. What was in it for the racers to show up and compete in this thing? As it turns out a lot! Holley EFI put their own money where their mouth was, they worked with manufacturers to put money into the series, and the class is included in the NMCA’s contingency program which is among the best in the entire drag racing industry for racers. Basically if you play your cards right you can be leaving with well above $5,000 in your pocket if you can win. Holley pays back to eight cars and runner ups are handsomely rewarded as well.
The breakdown is simple. There’s a $1,500 to win number guaranteed. After that, Mopar, Chevrolet Performance, and Ford have all agreed to pay the winners from their respect makes $1,000 so we’re at $2,500 now and the contingency program pays $300 per product that is being used and is part of the program. We’re told by NMCA officials that it is typically nine to 10 products in cars like the ones we’ll see competing in this class. That’s real money and it is a great three pronged approach to supporting the people who support the series.
