Macon, IL (January 24, 2023) - The structure of a minimum $100,000 point fund was announced today for the ASA STARS National Tour. The champion is slated to receive at least $25,000 with the Top 10 in the standings at season’s end to also receive a check for their performance.
“We welcome all drivers to compete in the ASA STARS National Tour, and we want to enhance things for those who commit to the tour full-time by the top 10 in points,” said Bob Sargent, President of Track Enterprises, which operates the national tour and the three regional tours (ASA / CRA Super Series, ASA Midwest Tour and ASA Southern Super Series). “Our hope is that we are able to increase this point fund in the future, but we feel confident this will help the full-time teams.
All drivers and car owners are required to be licensed to be eligible for the point fund as well as the Winner’s Circle and Contingency Award programs, which will be announced soon.
