It's a Scramble for the big money
THE Modified Production Sedan Scramble at Lucas Oil Lismore Speedway tomorrow night offers one of the biggest prizemoney payouts in the country for the category.
More than $6000 is riding on the main event in addition to money for heat winners and placegetters.
The winner of the Scramble will pocket $3000, the runner-up $1200, third placing $600, fourth $500 and fifth $450.
The prizemoney also extends to sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth and 10th, with each to receive $250.
The total nudges $7000 which, for Modified Production Sedans, is substantial.
Promoter David Lander's investment already has paid dividends with a line-up of drivers among the best seen anywhere in Australia.
"I decided to put up such attractive prizemoney that it would attract some of the biggest Modified Production Sedan names in the country," Lander said yesterday.
"These guys are not used to racing for such good prizemoney and they have responded with a big entry list."
A special promotion will be held at the dealership of event sponsor Lismore Nissan and Kia tomorrow morning, with a race car display and free sausage sizzle from 8am until early afternoon.
Modified Production Sedans are one of the strongest racing categories on the national speedway scene with a big volume of competitors.
They feature at tracks across the country and the category is particularly strong on the east coast.
National champion Max Clarke heads the impressive line-up, which also includes national title-rated drivers Greg Worling, Jason Jolley and Todd Doyle.
