Progressive Purses Announced for Support Divisions at 2022 Karl Kustoms Bristol Dirt Nationals

All Eight Support Classes Eligible for Increased Payouts Based on Car Counts; Classes Not Capped and Entry is Open Now

BRISTOL, Tenn. (January 31, 2022) โ€” XR announces progressive payout structure for all support classes at the 2022 Karl Kustoms Bristol Dirt Nationals.

All eight support classes at the Karl Kustoms Bristol Dirt Nationals March 20-April 2 at Bristol Motor Speedway (Tenn.), will be eligible for progressive purses based on car counts. Purses will begin at $20,000, with main events set at $5,000 to win and $500 to start with $100 tow money. The car count thresholds are 100 and 150 cars, and if classes reach those numbers, total purses will increase by $10,000, respectively.

โ€œWe want to reward every driver who races at Bristol this year,โ€ said XR Chief Operating Officer Dan Robinson. โ€œThis structure will incentivize competition and participation and will show no favoritism to any support class over the other. All racers and fans who show up in Thunder Valley will be treated to a great show every night because of this, too.โ€

The purses will only increase based on number of cars that attempt to compete in the event, not how many are registered. Modifieds, Open Modifieds, Sport Mods, Factory Stocks, Street Stocks, Stock Cars, Hobby Stocks and Hornets will be the 2022 support classes at Bristol.

For each class, if 100 cars or more attempt to compete, the total purse increases to $30,000, the main event is $7,500 to win and $750 to start with $125 tow money. If 150 cars or more attempt to compete in a class, the purse will be $40,000 and have a $10,000-to-win, $1,000-to-start main event with $150 tow money.

Classes will not be capped at the 2022 Karl Kustoms Bristol Dirt Nationals and are open for entry now. Drivers can enter at https://bristoldirt.link/entry.

The 2022 Bristol Dirt Nationals will be split into two weeks of racing. Modifieds, Stock Cars, Sport Mods and Hobby Stocks will race during Week 1 (March 20-26). Open Modifieds, Factory Stocks, Street Stocks and Hornets will race during Week 2 (March 27-April 2).
