This evening, the head man at Mid-West Pro Mod, Pro Mod and Radial star Keith Haney announced the details about the Elite Motorsports, LLC Elite 16. Keith stated that it will be a $50K payday open to all pro mods that fit into the MWPMS rule set.
Another big revelation was that the race will be held at the Dallas Motorplex in Ennis, TX. With an average daytime temp in the low 70's it is sure to be one hell of an opportunity to see some great side by side racing. Keith stated that the track prep will be handled by the extraordinary Tyler Crossnoe, who also hosted the MWPMS earlier in 2018 at his Outlaw Street Car Reunion in Bowling Green. Tyler was responsible for laying down prep that saw the MWPMS record fall as well.
Elite Motorsports, LLC. who most know as the primary sponsor of two time World Champion Erica Ender's Pro Stock car has entered the fray as the title sponsor for the Elite 16. Elite has also been a very strong presence with Erica and her NHRA pro mod entry this season.
So what about some details in regards to the event then? First and foremost there will be a 16 car main field that will battle it out for a $50,000.00 winner take all pay day. While there may only be 16 cars in the main event, Keith has decided that there will be a second chance field, and they will be competing for a hefty $15,000.00 winner take all as well. Jerry Bickel Race Cars will be the presenting partner for the second chance race at the event as well.
Not to be left out, there will also be a 32 car Top Sportsman class. They will compete for a sweet $5500.00 to the winner, $2500 for R/U, $1000 semis, and $500 quarters. The Top Sportsman class is being brought to you by Summit Racing. This is a chance for the best T/S in the country to take home for cash for Christmas gifts.
