(PETERSEN MEDIA)- Saturday night it goes down. Dirt Classic 5 invades Lincoln Speedway with a lucrative amount of money on the line and we are here to simplify the night for you and get you a little more excited for a great night of racing.
PA Posse fans we put this show on for you and the highly touted PA Posse. Saturday night we expect all the key players to show up as they chase after a spot in the now $27K to win (in honor of Greg Hodnett), $1500 to start Dirt Classic 5 pres. by Schmuck Lumber Feature Event. While the PA Posse makes this event great, we also have been known to attract some outside followers. A couple drivers that has made it known that they will be there and in the hunt are Brian Brown and Tim Shaffer. Who else will show? You will have to show up to find out.
Dirt Classic events have a rich tradition of putting up great events with the spectacular purses all through the field. While many big shows boast a high paying amount to the winner, Dirt Classic has thrived on paying well throughout the field. In fact, in years leading up to Dirt Classic 5 changes have been made through the field rather than to the winner, but this year we were able to add to both as it will offer $1500 to start and a cool $27K to win. This week there has even been more to come with a Hard Charger Award now offering $1000 courtesy of the famed Beerhill Gang.
It is simple. The home of Dirt Classic is Lincoln Speedway. If you can’t make it, the online home of Dirt Classic is SpeedShift.TV.
In our five years of existence, we have settled into what has become a familiar early Fall date in the midst of the Month of Money in PA; it goes down THIS SATURDAY.
A common question about this event is ‘Why?”. Well it is actually pretty simple. We have gone into detail about the ‘Why’ on DirtClassic.Com, but in short we wanted to invest in the future of Sprint Car Racing by offering great payouts, introducing innovative formats, and using marketing strategies to excite and involve the fans. We want to offer big money, attract the best competition, and put on a show for the fans.
In promotion someone always hates the format. Despite what some people say, we love our format and it shows with our competition and the amount of people that flock the stands. The gist of it is simple. We want to reward drivers that can both qualify well and pass cars.
Points are awarded for time trials, and then drivers are put into two-heats each. The first heats will be lined up straight up off of time trials, with points up for grabs, and the second heats will be fully inverted with even more points up for grabs.
The top 20 in points when that’s all said and done move into the feature event where they will be lined up straight up off of points, while the balance of the field will be spread out into the ‘B’ and ‘C’ Main Events.
For those unable to make it to Dirt Classic 5 pres. by Schmuck Lumber, make sure to tune into SpeedShift.TV for flag-to-flag coverage.
