Salina Highbanks Speedway
Ameri-Flex Challenge III Presented By Grand National Trailer GUARANTEES $3,000 To Win / $1,000 To Start!
Tulsa Okla. (Sept. 12, 2018) - The big one is coming and its the "Ameri-Flex Challenge III Presented By Grand National Trailer" sprint car race to be held at the Salina Highbanks Speedway in Salina Oklahoma on Saturday September 29th. Sanctioned by the Oil Capital Racing Series, the 3rd running of this event will pay $3,000 to win with a GUARANTEED payout of $1,000 to start for all main event participants.
The AFC III event is open to all champ sprint teams that meet the rules of the OCRS series.
"After some discussions with Bryce Hall (Salina Highbanks promoter) and Corvan Robison (Ameri-Flex owner), it was agreed to make the starting purse for the main event a guaranteed $1,000 to start race for the full 20 car field. OCRS is very honored to have these gentlemen as partners and we just cant thank them enough for their support. With the racing legends on hand to provide a "Meet & Greet" session for the fans, This is going to be an outstanding program," stated series owner Barry Grabel.
In January, it was announced that champ sprint teams needed to make a required number of AMERI-FLEX / OCRS events to earn $1,000 to start with an adjusted amount to those those who made fewer races. With the revisement to pay all starters a guaranteed minimum of $1,000 to start, there are still 3 key benefits to those teams who attended a minimum of 6 races prior to the AFC III event.
They are as follows:
- There will be two provisional positions available for the main event after a total of 8 cars have transferred from the semi main events. For "car owners" who's drivers do not transfer into the main event through the semi's, those provisional spots will go to the first two car owners and their drivers in the finishing order of the semi's that failed to qualify for the main event and competed in a minimum of 6 events with the series.
Note: If there are provisional spots not used by those car owners that made the required events, those provisionals will go to the next cars in line that did not transfer from the semi's. Any ties will be awarded to the driver that earned the most overall points from their heat race.
Top 10 drivers in "Passing Points" from their heat races are locked into the main event. The top 4 drivers for their "Car Owners" who made 6 prior events will re-draw pills 1 through 4 to determine those starting positions in the main event. The 4 highest remaining lock-in drivers in passing points will re-draw for starting positions 5 - 8 with 9th and 10th in passing points starting in those positions automatically.
There will be 5 "Contingency Packages" available to qualified car owners.
The packages consist of:
$100 Gift Card from Smiley's Racing Products
$100 Certificate from Maxim Racing
$50 Certificate from Rod End Supply
$50 Certificate from Amsoil (Grady Oil Co.)
These sponsor packages, along with the non-qualifier payout, will go to the first 5 qualified car owners that do not make the main event. If there aren't any car owners that meet this criteria (or there are some sponsor packages left), these will go into a draw for the qualified car owners that competed in the main event.
We wish to offer our sincere thanks to Devore Tax Service (dba H&R Block) for their sponsorship of this event along with the Finishline Restaraunt and the aforementioned contingency sponsors. Together with Ameri-Flex Hose & Accessories and Grand National Trailer, this has become the highest paying sprint car race in the state outside of the World of Outlaws.
Fans will not only see the Ameri-Flex / OCRS sprint cars, there will also be a B-Mod challenge event pitting the Ameri-Flex B-Mods vs. the Sooner Limited Mods along with Super Stocks and the historic racing cars from the Kansas Antique Racers (KAR). The group from KAR has some really cool racing cars that fans will get a kick out off.
It will be "Meet The Legends Night" as drivers from the glory days will be on hand for autographs to start the night.
Shane Carson, Ray Crawford, Jerry Stone, Tommie Estes Jr, Derrill Brazeal, Terry Doss, Bob Waller, Jack Wickett and more to be announced will be on hand to "Meet & Greet" the fans from 5:30pm - 6:30-pm.
