JACKSON, Minn. (January 4, 2019) – Jackson Motorplex officials are pleased to welcome AGCO Corporation back as the title sponsor for the 41st annual AGCO Jackson Nationals.
The three-day weekend featuring the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series is June 27-29 and culminates in a $41,000-to-win and $3,000-to-start main event. More than $305,000 will be up for grabs throughout the weekend as both preliminary nights pay $10,000 to win.
“Having AGCO on board supporting this long-standing event is a tremendous asset for Jackson Motorplex as well as the entire community,” Jackson Motorplex General Manager Doug Johnson said. “Their continued support of this event allows us to grow the Jackson Nationals into one of the marquee events in sprint car racing.”
