CRANDALL, Texas -- Drivers and race fans, are you ready for something different? RPM Speedway is pleased to announce a special twilight Sunday event scheduled for 4 p.m. on June 9.

Featuring increased purses – yet no increased ticket prices or driver entry fees – the RPM Summer Shootout features a full RPM point’s event for USRA Modifieds plus RaceSaver Sprint Cars, Street Stocks, Limited Modifieds and Factory Stocks.

Track promoter Jason Troutman comments: “We’re not afraid to try new things at RPM Speedway. We feel a lot of fans and drivers will enjoy an event like this. We run a really fast paced program and the races should be completely finished by 8 p.m. or earlier so everyone can get back home at a decent hour.

“We have strategically timed this event at a 4 p.m. start time so that we can keep a handle on changing track conditions. We fully plan on having a very racy surface and will not disappoint the fans and teams. We’d like to do an event like this once or twice a year in the future and we know the importance of keeping the track surface conducive for great racing.”

Each division will be competing for added purse money without added entry fees to drivers or added ticket prices for race fans. The USRA Modifieds are racing for $1,000 to win

Purse breakdown for each division is posted at the ‘6/9 Event’ link at www.rpmspeedwaytx.com.

All cars in each division must meet RPM Speedway rules, which are posted at the track website. This is a full track points race for all five divisions. USRA Modifieds will receive USRA track and national points in addition.
