Farley Speedway’s Modified Super Weekend Race Format
Details continue to trickle in about Farley Speedway’s Modified Super Weekend event on May 11-13, 2017. We now know some of the qualifying procedures.
The inaugural race at Farley Speedway is setting up to be a ‘history in the making’ race on the three-eighths mile dirt oval. Based on the news released over the weekend, the Modified Super Weekend boasts a massive $178,000+ purse.
The field will be limited to the first 140 Modified and the first 140 SportMod driver entry forms received. The early entry fee for Modifieds is $400 if received by April 1. After April 1, the cost climbs to $500. The SportMod early entry is $300. After April 1, the entry fee rises to $400.
IMCA rules will apply for both divisions, but the event will not be sanctioned by the the International Motor Contest Association.
Each driver will race in two heat races on Friday night. A random draw for each division will determine the line-ups for the first 10 heats comprised of 14 cars in each division. The line-ups will be inverted for each driver’s second heat race. Passing points will be used. The total points accumulated from both heat races will determine the line-ups for Saturday’s races.
Complete details about Saturday’s race format have not yet been released. As of press time, we know that the Modified $50,000 to win main event will see 30 drivers take the green flag. The same is true for the $20,000 SportMod main event. There will also be three non-qualifier events for each division. More information is expected to be released soon.
Lap totals are still unclear at this time.
