Officials with Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri and Representatives from Reliable Chevrolet in Springfield, Missouri are excited to announce a new and improved GM Crate Engine Incentive Program for 2011. This program applies to all drivers utilizing a Factory Sealed GM 602 or 604 Crate Engine in the TNT Quick Shop ULMA Late Model Class at Lucas Oil Speedway in 2011. "We really applaud Reliable Chevrolet for stepping up their program for 2011." stated Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Dan Robinson. "This updated program will now give a driver the opportunity to win $1,000 per night if they capture the Feature Win with a GM Crate Engine purchased at Reliable Chevrolet."
A $300 bonus will be paid to the highest finishing driver utilizing a Factory Sealed GM Crate Engine if the engine was purchased at Reliable Chevrolet and has not been rebuilt. An extra $100 will go to the second highest finishing driver utilizing a Factory Sealed GM Crate Engine purchased at Reliable Chevrolet. By combining the standard $700 to win plus the $300 bonus, a win in a Crate Engine car could be worth as much as $1,000 in 2011.
If a driver is the highest finishing driver utilizing a GM Factory Sealed Engine but was not an engine purchased at Reliable Chevrolet, the driver will still earn $100, while a second driver could earn an extra $50 if they are the second highest finisher running a GM Factory Sealed Engine but not purchased at Reliable Chevrolet. There will only be two awards given per night, Lucas Oil Speedway Officials and Reliable Chevrolet Representives will determine the authenticity of the place of purchase through serial numbers and purchase documentation to determine the level of awards on a nightly basis.
The winner of the bonus money each night must pass a thorough Technical Inspection andbe deemed Legal by the Lucas Oil Speedway Technical Staff prior to receiving the bonus.
