2022 Castrol FloRacing Night in America Slates Boasts 12 Dates at 12 Venues with major purse increases
AUSTIN, Texas (Nov. 22, 2021) — On the heels of a great inaugural campaign in 2021, the Castrol® FloRacing Night in America tour is ready to storm into 2022. More races, more tracks, and more money headline the sophomore season for the 2022 season. Lincoln Speedway, at the Logan County Fairgrounds in Lincoln, IL, will be hosting the special series on Thursday, May 12.
“While Mother Nature threw every curveball imaginable at us in 2021, we still enjoyed a great first year, and now we are geared up for 2022,” said miniseries general manager, Ben Shelton. “Due to the support of our great marketing partners, we’ve been able to amp up both our nightly purses and point’s fund for 2022. Nightly purses have been increased by over $27,000 to now pay at least $22,022 to win and $1,000 to start. Additionally, our point’s fund has grown from $62,500 to $85,250. The Top 10 in the final standings will receive a portion of the point fund with $30,000 earmarked for the champ.
“We thank all of the sponsors, racers, and fans who supported us in year one, and we look forward to seeing everyone in 2022.”
The 2022 Castrol® FloRacing Night in America will come to life on Tuesday, April 12 at Tony Stewart’s Eldora Speedway as the miniseries makes its debut at the hallowed, ½-mile oval. Brownstown (Ind.) Speedway then rounds out the month with a Wednesday, April 27 event.
