$25,000-to-Win Features on Each Super Late Model Race Night, $100,000 Points Championship Await Racers

BRISTOL, Tenn. (October 5, 2021) – X.CELERATED announces a massive payout structure for Super Late Models at the second-annual Karl Kustoms Bristol Dirt Nationals held March 20-April 2, 2022 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

After a phenomenal inaugural Karl Kustoms Bristol Dirt Nationals, XR Events and Bristol Motor Speedway will go even bigger in 2022 with an expansion to two weeks of racing as Bristol Motor Speedway’s traditional concrete surface is covered in dirt to host the nation’s very best dirt racers at The Last Great Colosseum. The two weeks will feature eight Super Late Model race nights with each main event paying $25,000-to-win. Super Late Models are scheduled to race on March 23- 26, 30-31, and April 1-2, 2022.

In addition to the winner payouts, XR Events announces a Super Late Model points championship with drivers accumulating points each night they race. The top point-earner will win an additional $100,000 as the champion. If one driver is victorious in every Super Late Model race, that would mean a total haul of $300,000.

Complete event information for the 2022 Karl Kustoms Bristol Dirt Nationals will be available soon by visiting www.bristoldirt.com.
