Wichita Falls, TX (2/27/15) by DarinShort.com. This time of the year,
Mother Nature can wreak havoc on a track schedule, so on occasion,
you just have to do what you can to get races in. And, a track has to
make decisions that are in the best interest of the majority of the
racers, fans - and the track itself. After looking at several forecasts,
all are showing that by next weekend spring will arrive by Saturday -

NEW EXCITING PURSE STRUCTURE FOR 2015!
We're excited to unveil our new purse structure for 2015. The Sprint
Cars, Modifieds and SportMods will each have a higher total purse
than in 2014...plus on any regularly scheduled night, if there are over
20 cars in each of those divisions, even higher purse structures will
be in effect!
Here's how it works:
Sprint Cars and Modifieds (both have exact same purse structures):
In 2014, the total A-feature purse was $4,250. In 2015, the base
purse is $4,290 and will be distributed as follows: $700 - 500 - 400 -
350 - 300 (5th) - 250 - 200 - 180 - 160 - 150 (10th) - 140 - 130 - 120
- 110 - 100...to start.
However, if there are 21 or more Sprint Cars or Modifieds (in their
respective divisions), then the total purse jumps from $4,290 to
The '21 and up' purse for the Sprints and Modifieds is as follows:
$700 - 500 - 400 - 350 - 300 (5th) - 250 - 225 - 200 - 190 - 180
(10th) - 170 - 160 - 150 - 140 - 135 (15th) - 130 - 125...to 24th! (Note
24 starters, not 20!)
For the IMCA Southern SportMods, the total purse has jumped from
$2,210 (in 2014) to $2,370 (in 2015) and will be distributed as follows:
$400 - 300 - 200 - 170 - 150 (5th) - 130 - 120 - 100 - 90 - 80 (10th) -
75 - 70 - 65 - 60...to start.
However, the same '21 cars and up' applies to the IMCA Southern
SportMods! If there are 21 cars or more on a normally scheduled
night, the total A-feature purse jumps from $2,370 to $3,115!
The '21 cars and up' IMCA Southern SportMod A-feature purse is as
follows: $500 - 300 - 250 - 200 - 175 (5th) - 150 - 130 - 120 - 110 -
100 (10th) - 90 - 85 - 80 - 75...to 24th! (Note 24 starters, not 20!)
Drivers in these three divisions: what this means is you are in more
control of your purse structure. If you help rally other drivers in your
division to support RRS in 2015, you will be rewarded by getting paid
more at each normal event! If you help us, we will help you!
The 2015 new structure translates into a 'base' purse of $14,100 to
$16,500 each and every night at Red River Speedway in 2015!
The only nights when this policy is not in effect is when there is a
special event in that particular division, and those purses will be
posted in advance...for example, on USMTS or OCRS nights where
there is a bigger purse already.
The Pro Stocks/I-Stock (100% IMCA legal Stock Cars are now legal to
run in the Pro Stock division in 2015) and Factory Stocks will each be
competing for the following purse structure - unless otherwise noted:
$300 - 200 - 180 - 160 - 140 - 120 (5th) - 100 - 80 - 60 - 40...to start.
The Mini Stocks will be competing for the following purse structure -
unless otherwise noted: $300 - 150 - 125 - 100 - 80 - 60 - 40...to start.
Pro Stock and IMCA Stock Car drivers: we are allowing 100% IMCA
legal Stock Cars to race in the Pro Stock division in 2015. There is no
mixing/matching of rules allowed from one division to the other. You
must run either the posted RRS Pro Stock rules - or 2015 IMCA Stock
Car rules to race in this division. No exceptions!
Note: the Factory Stocks are still scheduled OFF on March 7. The
same division lineup for March 6th will be racing on March
7...IMCA/RaceSaver/Champ Sprint Cars, USRA Modifieds, IMCA
Southern Sport Mods, Pro Stocks and Mini Stocks.
THANK YOU to all the teams and race fans for their past support of
racing at Red River Speedway, and we're super excited to kick off the
season next weekend, with Open Practice on Friday, March 6th, and
a full night of racing on Saturday, March 7th!
