MOTOR MILE SPEEDWAY, SOUTHERN NATIONAL MOTORSPORTS PARK ANNOUNCE “THE DIRTY DOZEN”
Late Model Stock Car drivers competing at Motor Mile Speedway and Southern National Motorsports Park will have the opportunity to net some extracurricular cash this season.
An alliance between the pair of short track powerhouses has birthed a program entitled “The Dirty Dozen.”
Designed to enhance each 2013 race schedule, “The Dirty Dozen” is an enrichment program spotlighting six events at both venues. All races are structured exclusively under the “Twin” format, for a total of 12 feature races at each track.
A $10,000 points fund has been established, with $3,000 in prize money allotted to the champion. The runner-up will bank $2,500, and the third place finisher will collect $2,000. The fourth and fifth place finishers will receive $1,500 and $1,000, respectively. Points and purses awarded to participants in “The Dirty Dozen” will be independent of each venue’s weekly track program.
The champion will be the driver completing “The Dirty Dozen” with the most points, earned throughout the season at Motor Mile Speedway and Southern National Motorsports Park.
“The Dirty Dozen” promises to be a showcase of the top Late Model talent spanning Virginia and North Carolina, and will guarantee race fans added excitement from the new competition the program is likely to bring to both venues.
Motor Mile Speedway is located in Radford, Va. The .416-mile oval is celebrating its sixtieth birthday this season, and its twenty-fifth season as a NASCAR-sanctioned facility.
Southern National Motorsports Park, located in Lucama, NC, enjoyed a groundswell of support when its gates re-opened in 2012. The partnership with Motor Mile Speedway is sure to keep the fans and drivers returning for more. SNMP is a .410- mile asphalt oval track with 17 degree turns, 7 degree straight-a-ways and a 70′ wide racing surface.
