Nebraska Late Model/Grand National Bragging Rights continues to grow

The Nebraska Late Model/Grand National Bragging Rights Championship continues to grow as the
Dawson County Raceway in Lexington became the sixth track to join the Bragging Rights Championship.
 In addition MalvernBank.com., the Official Bank of Dirt Track Racing has also stepped up by putting
an additional $1,000. The additional $2,000 will allow the Championship to pay 10 spots instead of 6.
The additional $2,000 will be used to pay Seventh $650, Eighth $550, Ninth $450 and Tenth $350.

So the updated Kosiski Auto Parts/Friesen Chevrolet/MalvernBank.com Late Model/Grand National
Bragging Rights point fund for 2015 will now pay as follows: (1) $1,500 plus the $1,000 certificate off
the cost of a new GM Crate Engine (2) $1,200 (3) $1,100 (4) $1,000 (5) $900 (6) $800 (7) $650 (8) $550
(9) $450 and (10) $350.
The point fund should help generate some great Late Model/Grand National racing in Nebraska in 2015.

Nebraska Late Model/Grand National Bragging Rights Championship

Kosiski Auto Parts and Friesen Chevrolet working with five Nebraska race tracks have set up a
Bragging Rights Late Model/Grand National point fund for the 2015 racing season. Those five
tracks are the Boone County Raceway in Albion,
                     US 30 Speedway in Columbus,
                     the new Off Road Speedway near Norfolk,
                     Junction Motor Speedway at McCool Junction,
                     I-80 Speedway near Greenwood,
                     (added 1-12-15,
Dawson County Raceway in Lexington).

Kosiski Auto Parts will put in $1,500 to the point fund with Friesen Chevrolet adding an
engine certificate good for $1,000 off the cost of a GM Crate Engine. Each race track will
put $1,000 into the fund for a total of $6,500 in cash plus the $1,000 engine certificate.
The point fund will pay the top six cars in points as follows: (1) $1,500 plus the $1,000
engine certificate (2) $1,200 (3) $1,100 (4) $1,000 (5) $900 (6) $800.

A driver can run as many races as he choses of the approximatly 80 races to be ran at the
five tracks, but it is his best 20 point nights that will be used in calculating his points total.
A minumum of five races from at least two differrent race tracks must be included in calculating
a drivers best 20 races. (Example: a driver's top 20 races could include 15 races at Off Road,
and five at US30 or any combination as long as at least five races from two different tracks
are included.) Points can be earned for any Late Model/Grand National event held at these
five tracks including all special events. MLRA, CBC and SLMR events are NOT eligible
events for Late Model/Grand National Bragging Rights purposes.

Points for the Bragging Rights Championship will be awarded for each feature event as follows;
(100, 96, 94, 92, 90, 88, 86, 84, 82, etc.). Non qualifiers will receive 40 points. Tie-breakers
will be determined by most wins, then seconds, thirds etc. in the twenty races.
