Big purse, lots
of gifts for sprint drivers
By Brian Liskai
FREMONT, Ohio (July 28, 2004) - This
Saturday's races at Fremont have a big purse for sprint drivers and a lot
of racing for the fans.
Pepsi presents the Chuck Kear Memorial-Fremont 50 on Saturday, July
31. The 410 winged super sprints will run a 50-lap feature event paying
$5,000 to win and $600 to start thanks to help from associate sponsors
Steinle Oldsmobile, Pontiac, Cadillac, GMC and KS Sales and Service.
The winged 305 sprints will be split into two complete fields based
on odds and evens in the point standings. Each group will run heats and
all will run in a feature event, each A-main being 25 laps carrying the
full regular purse including $500 to win and full points.
In addition, all A-main sprint car drivers - in the 410 sprints and
both features of the 305s - will receive a manufacturer's gift or gift
certficate (depending on the total number of giveways, some may be given
to the first few nonqualifiers from the 410 sprint B-main). The total giveaway
