All three nights of the Wisconsin marquee event (Aug. 3-5) will award championship points for competitors and showcase 25-lap, $6,000-to-win, Features on Thursday and Friday, and then the legendary 100-lap, $50,000-to-win, main event on Saturday. In total, nearly $50,000 was added to the three-day overall purse, bringing it to nearly $300,000.
Thursday and Friday’s event will utilize the “Every Lap Matters” points format where drivers will be awarded event points for Qualifying, Heat Races, Last Chance Showdowns and the Feature. The top 16 in event points after those two nights will be locked into Saturday’s Feature – with all drivers staging heads up.
The USA Nationals is a fan, and driver, favorite as the 3/8-mile high-banked track produces wheel-to-wheel racing every night with a wide-range of off-track spectacles and excitement. With the addition of championship points on the line this year, the epic title fight among Chris Madden, Kyle Bronson, Nick Hoffman, Bobby Pierce, Brian Shirley, Ryan Gustin and Brandon Sheppard will rage on each night.
