August 4, 2011 – Once again, McTwo Promotions is making it more profitable for drivers competing in the Musco Lighting Front Row Challenge and the Casey’s Ultimate Challenge presented by Don Long’s Searsboro Telephone Company! The races will be held this Monday night, August 8 (FRC), and Tuesday night, August 9 (UC), at the Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa, Iowa.
Drivers will feel the love early, as the Driver’s Meeting will hold a few drawings. Each driver will be in the running for sets of tear-offs compliments of Kear’s Speed Shop. In addition, a total of twelve right rear tires courtesy of Hoosier Tires and Scott Fernandez are up for grabs for Tuesday’s Ultimate Challenge! A driver each night will also receive free autograph cards from www.DriverWebsites.com!
A Winters rear-end, valued at over $2,000 will be given away each night as well. Also, Keizer Wheels will give away two front wheels and a set of front hubs. Jocko’s Sprint Parts of Des Moines is giving away a chrome air tank and big front bumper!
Casey’s General Stores has been a great supporter of sprint car racing as long as it has been around, and the Challenges will be no different. A free Casey’s pizza will be delivered to each race team on both nights.
“We wanted to get the juices flowing early and get the drivers excited about being here,” says McTwo Promotions, Terry McCarl. “Giving things away before they even race is a great deal.”
Once the cars hit the track, the contingencies keep on coming. On Monday night at the Front Row Challenge, heat race winners receive a $400 gift certificate towards All Pro Heads and a gift package from Hepfner Racing Products (HRP).
The B main winner on Monday night receives a Weld Racing right rear wheel valued at $500.
The main event Hard-charger on Monday night, and the “Keith Hutton Hard-Charger Award” Winner on Tuesday will receive a KSE Power steering pump valued at over $500.
“Over the years, we’ve had a tremendous relationship with companies that want to be a part of the Challenges,” says McCarl. “In fact, we are not done yet. We’re still working on some things for Monday and Tuesday. Being a racer myself, I know the value in these giveaways. I want to thank all the teams who spend their night with us.”
Of course, the biggest prize will be the “Championship Belts” coveted by the drivers.
The fans will not be left out either! Over 300 hats and t-shirts will be tossed into the stands, along with Casey’s Frisbees and over 6,000 Mardi Gras beads!
Of course, there is some serious cash on the line as well. A Front Row Challenge victory could net $50,000 and the winner of the Ultimate Challenge will receive $15,000! The popular Heat/Qualifiers format will again be used to set up the main events on Tuesday!
