FORD RACING RENEWS PARTNERSHIP WITH MMS
2015 contingency program to reward top-performing Late Model racers – JW Martin
Entering its second year in partnership with Motor Mile Speedway, Ford Racing will be returning in 2015 as a contingency sponsor of the track’s Late Model division.
Ford Racing’s 2015 contingency program will spotlight the top-performing NASCAR WHELEN All-American Series Late Model racers competing with Ford engines. Throughout the 14-race Late Model season, Ford Racing will award $200.00 in prize money to the winner, provided the racer has a Ford powerplant under the hood. $100.00 will be allotted to runner-up finishers, and $50.00 will be given to third place efforts.
Last season, as a contingency sponsor of the ‘Dirty Dozen,’ Ford Racing posted $1,450.00 in monetary awards. Tommy Lemons, Jr. netted the largest payout among Late Model participants in 2014, earning $700.00 on the strength of a three-win season. Payton Ryan and Dillon Bassett also piloted Ford motors to victory lane, collecting first-place paydays under an identical structure to the 2015 program.
Specifically, drivers must have a Ford D347SR Spec Engine or a built engine with Ford Racing N351 cylinder heads to qualify for the contingency program. For information on Ford Racing, visit www.racing.ford.com.
