Salem, Indiana (December 20, 2021) – Track Enterprises, the ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by JEGS, and the Southern Super Series Presented by Sunoco Race Fuel officials have announced that the Super Late Model feature with SpeedFest 2022 Presented by Racing America will now pay $12,000 to win. The winner’s purse was raised to a $7,000 payoff by Track Enterprises the event promoter, then an anonymous sponsor added a $5,000 bonus making the winners payoff $12,000 for the event. The event will take place on Friday, January 28th and Saturday January 29th.
The format for the SpeedFest 2022 Super Late Model event, which will be a co-sanctioned special non-points event for the ARCA/CRA Super Series and the Southern Super Series, will now be 150 green flag laps, teams will have six tires total for the event and there will be Controlled Cautions.
“This event has traditionally been a bigger Super Late Model event, so we felt like we needed to increase the total payoff and the number of laps,” remarked Bob Sargent with Track Enterprises. “We increased the laps to 150 and gave the teams two more tires, we increased the entire Super Late Model payoff for the event, then we had a sponsor come on board that wanted to put up a $5,000 bonus for the event winner, taking this event to the next level!”
