First big paycheck for late model drivers is here

April 23, 2009 1 Comment

The first big paycheck for local late model drivers comes Thursday night when the Deery Brothers Summer Series tour makes a stop at the Bullring. The $2,000-to-win event was rained out last Sunday.

Mark Burgtorf is going for his fourth straight money earned title at 8000 Broadway. The 14-time track champ’s streak is likely much longer than that, but it only dawned on me to start tracking that particular stat for late models in 2006, and other series in 2007.

Here’s a look at the late model cashbox. We’ll look at the other series in the coming days. All figures are taken from weekly payouts and are unofficial.
