Here's an opinion from a guy who has been involved with stock cars for years...the payout structure is very important, but being a part of a show like this weighs heavy with most, if not all, the stock car guys. That's why this series has had great car counts. The payouts for normal series events are also a bit top heavy but guys travel for those because it's great to be a part of. We competed in more than a few events this year, with the series, and will continue to do so in 2018. The Laboon race pays a quarter of this show and usually pulls approximately 50-60 cars (and that's no knock on that show, it's become a very prestigious event to be a part of...with a great pay structure). I see no reason that this $10,000 to win, top heavy race, shouldn't get even more support. Stock car guys appreciate these big shows and what the Penn Ohio series has become. This division has great drivers, fans and family's of those drivers. That is why this event will have the support regardless of the payout structure.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. "The Man In The Arena", Theodore Roosevelt, April 23, 1910

jmfosnaught Thanks man you said it all. I feel with this kind of money on the line, you will see some cars and drivers you never seen before. And Thanks to the Penn-Ohio Series and Sharon Speedway for showing casing the Stocks. This has been long overdue for these racers.

hope they define the rules so racers maybe coming from other states understand what the series rules are. would save a lot of confusion at tech......just a thought.

Davey,I think they mean like Knoxville where the back guys all get to run a last chance race with the opportunity to advance..this is from the Knoxville site..
10 lap E Main, 12 lap D Main, 15 lap C Main, 22 lap B Main, and the 50 lap 5-hour Energy Knoxville Nationals Championship A Main.
The B, C, D, and E Main will take the top four finishers to the tail of the next event (if there are scratches, there may be more taken for a particular event).
I remember way back when Wolfgang had a flat in his heat,won the "D" main,made the "C"..then the "B"..then got up in the top 5 in the "A".
tough road to hoe but pretty exciting for the fans.
