Racin' & Rockin VII
This fantastic summertime festival is a Mid-Michigan tradition and for the Modified Racing Community and MUST SEE EVENT. This extra special invite is a non-points affair for the Modifieds, with a special race format. R&R VII will be a regular points night for ABC Stock Car and Sport Stock competitors.
Clear you calendars and prepare to spend the night at the Port as we'll be offering free camping to anyone who wants to spend the evening with us following our post race celebration including a music show by everyone's favorite racing hippie; Matt Schindewolf and the Basement Dawgs.
Racing and Rockin Modified Guaranteed Purse. This is the base Pay. Sponsored Lap money will be added during the week as laps are finalized being sold. Any sponsored money will go straight to the drivers.
Top 8 qualifiers will "Lock" in. We will start up to 26 cars.remainder of field will be determined by heat race finishes. heat races will be run straight up (fastest cars staggered in each heat, with the fastest cars alternated through the heats filling fastest to slowest to fill each heat race field.) 8 lap heat races Top 8 fast heat results will be the order for the "8" lock cars to start the feature.
Race is 2 segments. 75 lap total. 40 laps - then a 15 minute "break" on the front stretch where crews will be allowed to refuel and make chassis adjustments. No tire changes. (in the event that an official is present and can hear or see a tire physically going down- a tire change may be allowed at officials discretion. That change would place the car at the tail end of the field.)CROWD MEMBER's will random draw pills from a container that re shuffles order of the top 7 cars from the end of 40 laps. That invert shuffle - and the remaining order of the cars will start the second segment for the final 35 laps.
Lap leader money will be at stake through out the race - lap sponsors are important and we will be working hard at selling out this for the remainder of this week. To sponsor a lap will be $20. It will be split in various ways. $10 goes to leader of specified lap and $10 will be split into various lap contingencies that take place. All money generated will go INTO the MODIFIED PURSE. The track will retain $0 sponsor money.
As is Racin' & Rock'n tradition - additional qualifying laps may be purchased - if you purchase additional- this puts your prior laps at risk. The purchased lap money will be directed as Matthew J Schindewolf directs, fast qualifier will be awarded lap buy money as Matt directs. All money generated will go back to the racers.
This iconic race has the potential for a $1500 win and for a field full of cash contingencies.
