$25,000 Bonus Raises Stakes at 2020 Season Opener at Vado


The 2020 World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series season opener at Vado Speedway Park just got even bigger. Set for Jan. 2-5, RVB Transport is awarding a $25,000 bonus to any driver who can win all three Features during the Battle at the Border event.

That bonus bumps the purse during the four-night event to a potential of more than $150,000. The Battle at the Border starts with a full practice session on Thursday, Jan. 2, before three consecutive days of racing, starting with two $5,000-to-win Features followed by a $15,000-to-win, 50-lap Feature on Sunday, Jan. 5. That means somebody could start their season off with $50,000 in the bank!

“We wanted to raise the stakes even more, and this bonus is going to increase the intensity of the racers right from the start of the year,” said Vado Speedway Park GM Rue Stone.  “We’re excited to showcase our track to a whole new group of fans in January, and we’re definitely eager to see the biggest names in Dirt Late Model racing chasing that $25,000 award.”
