BATAVIA, Ohio (August 20, 2019) - The nation's top dirt late model drivers will converge in Mansfield, Ohio this week to battle in one of the most anticipated events of the season.
The 2nd annual Dirt Million will take place August 22 thru 24 at Mansfield Motor Speedway. The total purse for the mega event currently exceeds $300,000, making the winners share of the 100-lap main event over $90,000. The 30-car field will pay over $2,400 to start, based on the current Dirt Million Ticker.
The unique format allows dirt racing families, friends, sponsors, fans, and teams everywhere in the world to play a role in building the feature's payoff. A portion of every ticket, camping reservation, VIP suite, and pay-per-view sold will go directly to the growing purse, making the payoff ever-more lucrative.
The purse will continue to increase until opening ceremonies on Saturday, August 24. It will be posted on the "ticker" which keeps track of the total current purse at that moment - in real-time. To learn more or become involved, visit: www.dirtmillion.com.
The on-track action Thursday and Friday will feature two complete shows for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, each boasting a $10,000 top prize. The field will be split into Duel #1 and Duel #2, based on pill draw. Each Duel will include a complete program of Miller Welders Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains, and a 30-lap, $10,000-to-win main event.
Competitors will earn points based on Time Trials, B-Mains, and Preliminary Main Event finishing results. The total points accumulated by a specific driver will be added together to create Saturday's Dirt Million Heat lineups.
Saturday's activities will kick off with six Heat Races. The top two finishers from each 10-lap Heat Race will transfer to the Dirt Million main event. Afterwards, the Dirt Million Dash will set the first three rows of the Dirt Million main event.
Duels main event winners are locked into the Dirt Million Dash and guaranteed a starting position in the first three rows of the Dirt Million main event. A total of six competitors will compete in the Dirt Million Dash. The remaining starting positions in the Dash, not filled by Duel main event winners, will be filled by the drivers with the highest in total accumulated points that are not already locked in the Dash.
Three, 12-lap B-Mains are scheduled for Saturday, with the top two finishers transferring to the Dirt Million main event. The drivers finishing third thru eighth in each B-Main will transfer to the non-qualifiers race. Starting positions 25 thru 29 in the Dirt Million main event are reserved for the Dirt Million Driver Rewards Program provisional starters. The winner of the 20-lap non-qualifiers race, held prior to the Dirt Million main event, will be the final transfer, starting 30th.
The blockbuster weekend will conclude with pre-race ceremonies, driver introductions, and the 100-lap Dirt Million finale.
