SWANSBORO, NC – Mini Stock Mayhem is making its return at Carteret County Speedway on Saturday, October 8th with the biggest Mini Stock race of the year.
The Battlefield Tire Pros 100 lap event will pay $1,200-to-win and $75-to-start, along with additional bonuses. Already, the race has attracted interest from racers all across the Tri-State area.
“This is going to be an awesome race if you own a Mini Stock,” series director Chuck Ruffner said. “Big money, 100 laps, cheap racing and you get to race just a few miles away from the beach. Some folks might want to cool off after the race. We’re looking forward to seeing teams from all over coming out to compete against some of the best Mini Stock racers around.”
The race will pay $1,200-to-win, $600 for second, $400 for third, $300 for fourth, $200 for fifth, $100 for sixth and $75 from seventh on back. Bonuses include a $100 pole award, a $50 hard charger award, a $50 award to the driver who makes the longest haul and a $200 bonus if the winner of the race is on American Racer tires. American Racer tires are available at Carteret County Speedway for $110 each.
The race will be 100 laps, if 20 or more cars show up and there will be a $50 entry fee for the Mini Stock Mayhem event. Ruffner says he is working on boosting the purse even more and updates will be posted in the days and weeks prior to the race.
Carteret County Speedway has run Mini Stock races under Mini Stock Mayhem rules all season. So far, in 2016, Michael Rouse from Wilson, North Carolina has scored three wins and Brandon Clements from Swansboro, North Carolina has one win.
The Mini Stock Mayhem race will be part of an action packed program that will also feature racing for Late Models, Street Stocks, U-CARs and Legend Cars.
