Pringle Masters COMP Cams Interstate Cup Sprint Car Series Opener

pringle040815Bryant, Arkansas (04/08/15) – Mother Nature finally stopped bullying the COMP Cams Interstate Cup presented by Dixon Road U-Pull-It, and the miniseries was able to host its first point event of the season on Saturday evening at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Little Rock driver Zach Pringle, served notice that this might very well be his year to claim the title as he scored the opening night win. He was followed across the stripe at the ¼ mile oval by Tim Crawley, Kyle Bellm, Cody Gardner and Derek Hagar.

The COMP Cams Interstate Cup presented by Dixon Road U-Pull-It was created in 2011 to reward drivers for competing at both I-30 Speedway and Riverside International Speedway. A.G. Rains of West Memphis, Arkansas, claimed the title in each of the first three years before seeing fellow West Memphis resident Marshall Skinner dethrone him in 2014.

For 2015 the tracks have once again coincided their schedules to not run Winged 360 c.i. Sprint Cars on the same night. Every weekly racing series points event through September 12th at each track will count toward a driver’s point total in the program. Any special event that pays more than a weekly show does not count as a points event for the series.

Drivers have no restrictions on how many races that they can miss at each facility to still be eligible for the season-ending points money.  Points acquired in all races will count toward the final total.

The final payout for the series will pay ten places, and the minimum payout for the final COMP Cams Interstate Cup will be the following: 1)$2,000 2)$1,500 3)$1,000 4)$800 5)$700 6)$600 7)$500 8)$450 9)$350 10)$300 and as more sponsors are secured the payout may be increased.

COMP Cams has also posted the following contingency prizes for the top five:

1st – $1000 COMP Cams Gift Certificate PLUS Trophy
2nd – $750 COMP Cams Gift Certificate
3rd – $500 COMP Cams Gift Certificate
4th – $250 COMP Cams Gift Certificate
5th – $125 COMP Cams Gift Certificate

In addition to money and contingencies, the program will  also award provisionals.  The driver highest in the final top ten standings in the points program who doesn’t qualify for the 7th Annual Ralph Henson Memorial on Saturday, September 19, at I-30 Speedway will get a provisional starting spot in the main event. Similarly,  the driver highest in the top ten in the final points (who didn’t use a provisional at the Ralph Henson Memorial), who doesn’t qualify for the Fall Nationals at Riverside International Speedway on Saturday, October 3, will get a provisional starting spot for the main event.

Race fans can also donate money to the points fund.  For a $100 donation, a race fan can be the title sponsor on a Sprint Car Weekly Racing Series Event at either track, and 100% of that money will go into the points fund.  For more information on sponsoring an event, contact Ben Shelton at 901-335-3037 or MSRMafia@gmail.com.
