Vanderlaan’s Building Supplies Jumps on Board to Add Bonus Money to The McDougall Insurance and Financial Great Crate Race!
Vanderlaan’s Building Supplies, a longtime supporter of Brighton Speedway and the division sponsor for the Speedway’s Pro Late Model Division has come on board to add bonus money for the Great Crate Race III. Vanderlaan’s has been the sponsor of the division and cars in the division since Late Models return to Brighton in 2010 and with this latest generosity will only help to grow car counts for this year’s addition of the $5,000.00 to win race!
Gerald Draaistra from Vanderlaan’s is offering bonus money to the top finishing driver from four different regions. A $200.00 bonus will be given to the top driver in attendance from the following regions: North East New York State Area, The Western New York State Area, Pennsylvania State and Southern Ontario. One driver from each region is guaranteed to take home an extra $200.00 on top of the already lucrative purse. The hope is the added bonus money will help draw more cars from each of the regions and add to the wide range of drivers we have seen over the first few years of doing this event.
On top of this Vanderlaan’s is offering an incentive to its home track drivers as well. If a Brighton Speedway regular (with more than 5 events in 2013) wins the race that driver will receive an additional $500.00 bonus Courtesy of Vanderlaan Building Supplies.
“With this new bonus money plus the $100.00 65th lap leader money from Image Landscaping the winner of the race will now likely take home $5,300.00 with the potential if a Brighton Speedway Regular can pull off the win he or she would take home $5,600.00” states track Promoter Mark Rinaldi. “With the exception of the World of Outlaw event this past June this event is the biggest paying event in Brighton Speedway history with a total purse well over the $20,000.00 mark when all bonuses are factored in and this could not be done without the support of our great sponsors that include McDougall Insurance and Financial, Excel Tower Service, Hotch’s Auto Parts, Dibbits Excavating and Vanderlaan Building Supplies”.
A number of other bonuses are up for grabs including lap money for a minimum $25.00 per lap; the lap money will be given out to a random position in each lap ensuring it is spread throughout the field evenly. For a complete list of specialty awards that have been collected to date see the list below.
In addition to the Great Crate Race, the OILgard Anti Rust Canadian Modifieds also have big money on the line with the $2000.00 to win Danny Reid Memorial event on the same night. More information will be released over the coming weeks leading up to the race regarding these two great events scheduled for Saturday, September 7th.
