Natural Bridge Speedway in Natural Bridge, VA has signed on to become a FASTRAK sanctioned track. The track plans to begin the season with open practices on the last two weekends in March and begin racing the first weekend in April, weather permitting.
“I’ve had a few drivers in the area asking for FASTRAK sanctioning,” said Natural Bridge Speedway promoter Mike Coffey, “FASTRAK is doing a great job getting racing back to being affordable and that is a necessity now days.”
Natural Bridge Speedway drivers in Chevrolet Performance Late Models will be eligible to compete for the National Weekly Championship which pays $10,000 to win and pays through the top 10. The points total is calculated by a driver’s best 15 finishes throughout the season. Natural Bridge Speedway will also receive $1,000 to go towards a Divisional points fund, which allows for local drivers to compete with those at nearby tracks. Divisions will be announced before weekly points start on April 1st.
“I’m really looking forward to it,” said Coffey, “We have the opportunity to have a great year and I’m hoping to have a good field of cars.”
Drivers who become FASTRAK members will also receive $100,000 in participant accident medical insurance, which is included in their membership. They can also add any crew members to the insurance for just $20 per person. Members who compete in at least 10 FASTRAK sanctioned events, weekly or touring, will be eligible for the members-only $5,000 to win FASTRAK World Challenge on September 14th. The following night is the FASTRAK World Championship, which pays $20,000 to win.
“I’m excited to welcome Natural Bridge Speedway into the FASTRAK family,” said FASTRAK General Manager DJ Irvine, “it’s an exciting time for FASTRAK and the drivers will enjoy everything FASTRAK offers.”
