NASCAR 2015

NASCAR 2015

We are ecstatic to be apart of NASCAR again for the 2015 season. It has been about 10 years since we were last partnered up with NASCAR and we are very grateful for this opportunity. We know this was an extremely large announcement that comes with a lot of questions. This is not the “official” announcement, Expect the official announcement at some point next week. This is just to clarify some of the questions up. Please take time to read the following. – Admission prices for both the front gate and pits WILL NOT be changing. All admission prices will remain the same. – Purses for Saturday night divisions will not be changing, they will remain the same. However the points fund payout will be a little larger. – All Saturday night drivers MUST register (if they don’t already have one) for a NASCAR license. This is $100 for Sports Trucks, Street Stocks and Late Models. $200 for Pro Stocks. If you do not already have a NASCAR license you must come to the office to register for one. – The registration fees for Sport Trucks, Street Stocks and Late Models are an additional $25. For Pro Stocks it is $50. – As a registered NASCAR driver, you will not have to pay any extra money for a VIP crew pass to receive the crew member price. With your NASCAR license you will automatically pay the crew member price, ultimately saving you money. – In order to get a VIP crew member pass you must buy a NASCAR license. We urge ALL crew members including car owners to purchase...

The All New 2015 Phil’s Propane Triple Crown

The All New 2015 Phil’s Propane Triple Crown

After two very successful years with the Phil’s Propane Triple Crown, we’ve decided to change it up a bit. After watching an action filled and tension building new grid format play out for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, we wanted to put our own spin on it. This grid format pushed racing teams and drivers to their limits. If you wanted to be successful you needed to be consistent and you needed to perform to the best of your ability to prevail. This new grid format makes it even for every driver, which will definitely make it interesting. The triple crown will still have three rounds of racing in each division. Only each of these three rounds have some sort of an elimination characteristic to it. In the first race for each division, all drivers start with contention for the Phil’s Propane Triple Crown Championship. The extra distance, double points race will end with the top 7 advancing to the next round. Those “Lucky 7” prepare themselves for the second round of the triple crown racing. In the second race for the triple crown championship the top 4 finishers of those Lucky 7 will move on. Now this is where it gets interesting. If someone who is not in the “Lucky 7” is to win that second race, they are BACK in the running for Phil’s Propane Triple Crown Championship knocking 4 people out of the “Lucky 7” instead of 3 moving into the “Final 4”. Simply put, if you win you’re back in! The “Final 4” now prepare to go into the third and final race of the...
