UMP Late Models: $1500 to WIN – UMP Modifieds: $1000 to WIN Weekly
A general gripe among racers who are apprehensive about committing to a half mile race track on a weekly basis is the payout. After all, the commitment of resources for such high speed tracks must be offset by the reward garnered at the end of the night. In the off season Hartford Speedway has set out to take the necessary step of securing more race teams to maintain the quality weekly program that our race fans have come to expect. All four divisions featured weekly will receive a payout increase for the 2015 race season, but the most dramatic increase will come to the Late Model and Modified ranks.
UMP Late Models will pay $1,500 to win and $200 to start with UMP Modifieds racing for $1,000 to win and $150 to start on a weekly basis. Every position in both divisions has also seen an increase in purse. This purse structure will be guaranteed through the completion of June 26th. At that point the speedway will evaluate the car count level in both Late Model and Modified classes and determine whether to continue with the high end payout. Now, any racer at this point will be asking themselves “what kind of car count do we need?” and the speedway is very realistic with the goal in answering that question. In order to maintain the purse after June 26th all we need is to average is 15 cars in both Late Model and Modified divisions. Simply put, a solid field of cars to ensure a quality show for our deserving fans is what we are after. Drivers should keep on the lookout for Hartford Speedway representatives at other venues through the months of April and May should you have any questions.
UMP Stock Cars will be racing for $300 to win and $75 to start while Cyber Stocks will be racing for $150 to win and $50 to start. These payouts are guaranteed weekly for the entirety of the 2015 season regardless of car count.
Hartford Speedway does not have driver registration fees, transponder fees, or hidden costs. Just buy your pit pass, draw a pill for your heat, and go race. Hartford Speedway does offer great competition, a fast, professional, efficient race program, and hospitality to our spectators and drivers that is second to none. We understand that many racers will be coming from out of state and with our 8PM (Eastern) start time that most drivers should make it to the track by then, but if you are running late, then feel free to call the track to ensure we work you into the race program.
