Increased purse for 2016 Sunoco North/South 100
Florence Speedway is excited to announce that the 2016 Sunoco North/South 100 presented by Lucas Oil will be receiving a purse increase that will make it one of the highest paying races in the sport. After increasing the purse to pay $50,000 to win in 2003, the race has seen tremendous growth over the last decade. In 2014, with a change to the popular passing points format, the race received an increase of over $12,000 in the form of a non-qualifiers race for those not fortunate enough to make the 100 lap feature. And after seeing growth in attandance in 2015 due to the new format and the exciting racing it produces, we are increasing the purse again. On August 11-13, 2016, the North/South 100 will again, pay $50,000 to win, but the race will now pay $3,000 to start! This is the highest paying start money of any race in the sport, and is sure to draw the attention of all of the top drivers. Tickets for the event will go on sale to the public in January.We are also pleased to announce that the Hilton Cincinnati Airport will, once again, be the host hotel for the event.
