300-lap season finale named “The Inaugural BAIRD Drywall & Acoustics, Inc. BARNBURNER presented by LINE-X of the Blue Ridge”
Motor Mile Speedway’s commemorative program celebrating its 25-year anniversary with NASCAR culminates on September 7th with the return of a “big money” race.
Now, specifics surrounding the highly-anticipated season finale are beginning to solidify.
The marquee event of the 2013 NASCAR WHELEN All-American Series Late Model season has been entitled the Inaugural BAIRD Drywall & Acoustics, Inc. BARNBURNER presented by LINE-X of the Blue Ridge.
With the financial support of the Shelor Motor Mile, Vinton, Va. – based BAIRD Drywall & Acoustics, Inc. and LINE-X Protective Coatings of the Blue Ridge, located in Salem, Va., the race is boasting a total purse of $54,250.00, with a tidy $10,000.00 allotted to the winner.
The unprecedented payout includes a $1,000.00 pole award posted by longtime speedway supporter Price’s Body Shop, headquartered in Christiansburg, Va. Collectively, it’s the richest race hosted by Motor Mile Speedway since the ownership change in 2004.
“We’re thrilled to be bringing a ‘big money race’ back to Motor Mile Speedway, and it’s back because of the generosity of our sponsors,” says General Manager Al Shelor. “This is a must-see race for anyone who considers themselves a race fan.”
The Inaugural BAIRD Drywall & Acoustics, Inc. BARNBURNER presented by LINE-X of the Blue Ridge is slated for 300 laps on the .416-mile oval, and will spotlight 30 of the best Late Model racers in the country. Qualifying will determine positions one through 16, with the remainder of the starting line-up finalized by 25-lap qualifying races comprised of entries posting speeds outside of the top 16. The top six finishers in each qualifying race will advance to the feature. Two provisionals will be afforded to a pair of drivers based on the current NASCAR WHELEN All-American Series national point standings.
The feature will be divided into two segments, with a brief intermission beginning at lap 125. The final segment will also consist of 125 circuits.
More details, including a complete schedule of events, are forthcoming.
