Shippenville, PA (Mar 7th, 2023) – Western PA Speedweek is upping the ante in 2023 with more than $90,000 set to be distributed during the five-race miniseries between feature winnings + tow money, race night bonuses, contingency awards, Hoosier tire giveaways and point fund monies. First and foremost, thank you to all of our fantastic sponsors and supporters. Please take note of all those who support Western PA Speedweek, and return the favor to them any chance you get.
The 2023 Western PA Speedweek point fund eclipses the $12,000 mark and will be shared amongst the Top 10 drivers in the weekly rundown. As has become customary, the point fund is fully guaranteed as long as three or more races are completed. While the top three spots pay identical to 2022, positions fourth through ninth will each receive a pay raise.
2023 WESTERN PA SPEEDWEEK POINT FUND ($13,500 total):
**EDIT (March 13th, 2023) – Point fund has increased for the following positions**
2nd –> $2,500
3rd –> $2,000
4th –> $1,500
At first glance, the previously announced nightly feature purse does resemble last year’s $3,000 to win, $300 to start structure. Upon closer examination, payout has been increased for positions 3rd-12th, many of which are improving by 20-30%. Also returning for 2023 are the renowned Knox Bakery “Quick Time” award, Rustler Sales and Service “Hard Charger” award, The Dirt Network’s “Week Long Hard Charger”, a nightly drawing for a free Hoosier RR Tire, along with one other new and exciting contingency to be released in the coming weeks.
