World Of Outlaws Increases Sprint Car Purses, Points Fund
Officials from the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series have announced the series is increasing its single-day and two-day event purses, plus the overall points funds in 2021.
Each race now pays a minimum of $10,000-to-win, while the end-of-season points fund will payout more than $730,000 – about a $90,000 increase from 2020.
Single-day events will payout more than $55,800 in total ($1,000-to-start). Two-day events will payout more than $108,000 in total with the first night paying $5,500 to second-place, $1,850 to 10th and $900-to-start, and the second night paying $6,000 to second, $2,000 to 10th and $1,000-to-start.
Again, the championship will pay out $150,000 between the winning driver and team in 2021, but second-place will now pay $100,000, third paying $60,000, fifth paying $50,000, and 15th paying $13,000.
“We’re excited to provide drivers and teams with an increased purse for the 2021 season, especially after the burdens COVID-19 placed on them in 2020,” World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series Director Carlton Reimers said. “The increase is a representation of the Series’ exciting continued growth, our commitment to our competitors, and the growing support from the fans.”
Along with the purse increase, the 2021 season will see the return of several big paying events, including the Aug. 11-14 60th NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals at Knoxville Raceway, which will pay a potential $200,000 to the winner.
