Strong Contingency Program Offered For MAVTV Late Model Program At Madera

Via Madera Speedway Media

MADERA, CALIFORNIA (March 5, 2019) – Competitors in Madera Speedway’s MAVTV-televised Late Model Series will be offered a package of exciting contingencies in 2019, starting with Saturday’s Madera Speed Fest season opener. Teams from across the western United States will be racing for lucrative awards all season long with Saturday’s Nut Up Pro Late Model Series 100 lap feature paying $5,000 to the winner. The 51FIFTY Jr. Late Model season will begin as well, with drivers from five different states expected to compete in the 70 lap event.

Five Star Bodies previously announced a partnership for both divisions for their nine race series. The top-three in each feature will receive a certificate for body parts. First will receive $300, second $200, and third $100. A complete body package of the new 2019 “Gen-6” style body will be given away at the banquet as well.

Madera Speedway’s Late Model rules have just 13 total rules, allowing for many different body types and engine types controlled by a grooved 8” tire and weight penalties. Arguably the most successful package is the low-cost GM 602 sealed crate engine. Maita Motorsports, a division of Maita Chevrolet and approved dealer for GM Performance Parts, is offering contingency certificates towards a new 602 engine. It can also be applied to a CT525 engine as well.

For both Late Model divisions, first will receive a $100 certificate, second $75, and third $50. The program will extend to the non-televised Late Model division at Madera as well.

McAllister Precision Marketing returns to offer their incredible contingency program for the Jr. Late Model Series. As part of the partnership one of the top-five drivers in points will be randomly selected to receive a Premier Marketing Package from McCallister Precision Marketing.

The Premier Marketing Package will include consulting, promotion, 10 free press releases and a free test session with McCallister Precision Marketing client Lee Faulk Racing and Development on the East Coast. Logan Zampa, 14 of Napa, CA, won the prize in 2018 after finishing second in the points.

StopTech Brakes has stepped up their involvement with Madera Speedway in 2019 as well. Previously a large force in the sports car world, StopTech has found recent success in circle track racing at Madera. Both 2018 51FIFTY Jr. Late Model champion Jesse Love and 2018 Nut Up Pro Late Model champion Matt Erickson used StopTech brakes on their cars. StopTech will provide certificate prizes of $200, $150, and $100 for the top-three finishers of each Pro and Jr. event.

The 2019 season opens on Saturday night with the $5,000 to win Nut Up Pro Late Model feature during the Madera Speed Fest. Jr. Late Models, Mini Cups vs. Bandoleros, and Modified Super Toyotas round out the exciting card.

Action gets started on Friday evening with practice from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. Saturday’s program begins with pit gates opening at 11:00 a.m. Practices run from 1:00 – 2:45 p.m. with qualifying and heat races to follow. The first set of main events starts at 5:15 p.m. including the Mini Cup feature and the Late Model B Main. Opening ceremonies are at 6:00 p.m.
