SPORT MODS GET GUARANTEED PURSE 
AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY!

(Perris, CA, February 24, 2012) Perris Auto Speedway has announced a guaranteed purse of $500.00 for the Sport Modified Class through the first seven races of the 2012 season courtesy of Day Construction. The Sport Modifieds will open their season, along with the Oil Twins Amsoil Street Stocks, Super Stocks, Modifieds, American Factory Stocks, Super 4 Bangers and the CDCRA Dwarf Cars on Saturday, March 3rd.

"We want to thank Jim Smith of Day Construction for getting involved with the Sport Mod Class at The PAS," promoter Don Kazarian said. "This will guarantee the Sports Mods a purse through seven races even if less than 10 cars show up. There are lots of Sport Mod cars out there and this will be an extra incentive for them to race on our re-designed quarter-mile track."

Most classes in PASSCAR have a 10-car minimum to be eligible for a purse. When less than 10 cars show up, it is a trophy class. If less than 10 Sport Modifieds show up in any of the first 10 races, they will evenly divide up the $500.00 from Day Construction. Even better news is, if more than 10 Sport Mods show up, they will get their stated purse from the track and still get the $500.00 from Day Construction to be divided evenly between the cars.

"This class can really grow," said Jim Smith, the owner of Day Construction. "There are a lot of cars out there already and a lot more that can be bought for as little as $1,500.00 and get on the track. We wanted to see how many cars we can get so we added a little extra incentive. Hopefully we will get some of the guys from Bakersfield and other tracks to come race with us."

The Sport Mods, along with the American Factory Stocks, Super 4 Bangers and the CDCRA Dwarf Cars will all be racing on The PAS re-designed inner quarter mile track. Over the winter, Kazarian added bank to that track and widened it. At the practice session two weeks ago, drivers found the track to be very racy with multiple grooves and were able to back the cars in on both ends.

"The quarter-mile is going to provide some fantastic racing this year," Kazarian said with a confident grin. "It looked great in practice, but the entries into turn one and turn three were still to narrow. So, we have widened them out to make even better racing. In the past, the quarter mile was one grove around the inside wall. Not anymore! Fans will see some two and three wide door handle to door handle action just like they see on our half-mile."
