Mid-West Pro Mod Series & Elite Motorsports present the ELITE 16, the LARGEST Pro-Mod payout in the world! This race will be a $50k winner-take-all event that will take place in Ennis, Texas, at the storied Texas Motorplex November 1-3. With the entire purse payout a staggering $125,500 this event will be ACTION PACKED! Elite Motorsports, LLC Founder and Owner Richard Freeman says “This is a different deal for me. We have a lot of great customers and support in this region and I really wanted to give back and be involved in something like this. It’s a $50,000 to win race, so that in itself brings excitement. Whether you’re a racer or fan, this is going to be something to see!”
The ELITE 16’s goal is to give racers who have invested their time with MWPMS an opportunity to win a nice chunk of change.Series Founder Keith Haney stated, “We wanted to give the guys who’ve traveled and supported the Mid-West Pro Mod Series a bonus and that is the form of reduced entry into the Elite 16. If a racer has competed in three or more MWPMS events in 2018, their entry will be $1500. For all the guys (and gals) wanting to be a part of this HUGE payday and have competed in three or fewer MWPMS events or none at all, the entry is $2000. This means that the ELITE 16 is truly an event for everyone.”
If you didn’t make the ELITE 16 don’t worry, Jerry Bickel Race Cars has you covered. The competitors that qualified 17th place and back will have a chance to battle it out for a $15,000 second chance purse. If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again.
Top Sportsman brought to you by Summit Racing Equipment will also have the chance to rock & roll. T/S will be a 32-car field battling for a $5500 payday. Runner-up will pay $2500, while semis will take $1000, and $500 for quarter finals. The racers were given the option of a top-heavy purse or spread out and this is the decision that was determined.
“We are happy to have Summit Racing Equipment support this end-of-the-season battle for the Top Sportsman guys. Summit has supported my competition in three NHRA Pro Mod events this season, and I greatly value our partnership.”
Pro Mod and Top Sportsman are the only classes held at this event, allowing for specific track prep to showcase these big tire beasts.
“MWPMS partnered with Tyler Crossnoe’s Outlaw Street Car Reunion in Bowling Green in April and Tyler was a natural choice to bring in to prep the track at the beautiful Texas Motorplex geared solely for these slick tire racers.”.
Keith Haney has upped the ante at the end of the year even as the regular Frankenstein Engine Dynamics Mid-West Pro Mod Series points champion will be crowned now in Texas becauuse Tulsa rained out so you get two races in one. “We wanted to give these racers the place to come from all over the United States to battle it out for one $50,000 purse to the winner, the largest eighth mile purse as Wes Bucks’ World Series of Pro Mod $100,000 purse is invitation-only and contested to the quarter mile”, states Haney.
