2013 King of the West LogoFrom Gary Thomas

Santa Maria, CA – (July 23, 2013) – We are pleased to announce that teams competing at the Santa Maria Speedway this Saturday night will be racing for some extra special incentives, with a total of $2,000 in bonus money up for grabs courtesy of FK Rod Ends, in conjunction with Kaeding Performance and the King of the West 410 Sprint Car Series.

The extra money will be broken down as follows:

$500 to the Fast Qualifier
$500 to the Hard Charger
$500 to the A-main Winner
$500 to random draw in the A-main

The random draw will see envelopes be made for the number of A-main starters we have and during the King of the West 410 dash draw, we will choose an envelope. That envelope will be held until after the A-main event and on the front stretch we will open it to see which finishing position the $500 bonus will go to.

We are also very excited to welcome Maria Melillo of FK Rod Ends to the Santa Maria Speedway on Saturday, as she will take in the King of the West 410 Sprint Car Series event this weekend. FK Rod Ends is also a weekly contingency partner with the series.
