Jamaica, VA – The excitement level for the 39th Annual TireX USA 100 has been kicked up a notch or two with the announcement that the event will now be part of a the four race mini-series billed as the Colonial Clash Championship presented by Dirt Nation and also pay $15,000 to win. The TireX USA 100 will be contested on Saturday June 4, 2016 as the third race in the four race mini-series and will once again be sanctioned by the Ultimate Super Late Model Series.
The speedway has partnered with three other tracks in the region Georgetown Speedway (Georgetown, DE), Potomac Speedway (Budds Creek, MD) and Winchester Speedway (Winchester, VA) to put together a fantastic tour with a great point fund for the competitors that run all four events. All four shows will be sanctioned by the Ultimate Super Late Model Series.
“We wanted to do something to bolster up car counts and try to bring in more of the traveling fans to our USA 100 event. We knew if we could work together with some of the other tracks and promoters in the region that we could do just that. It just shows that promoters can work together and have it be a good situation for everyone involved. The USA 100 was already a big event but when you add these other races along with the point fund and the increase in the purse for the event I believe we can turn up the excitement and bring more drivers, sponsors and race fans into the fold.” said Virginia Motor Speedway’s Bill Sawyer.
On Thursday, June 2nd the mini-series will open at Delaware’s Georgetown Speedway for a $4000 to win, 40 lap event.
