Entry form, details for 20k-to-win Berlin Money in the Bank

Berlin Raceway

Berlin Raceway released the entry form for the Money in the Bank 150 on Monday afternoon revealing more information about the format and purse for what’s shaping into one of the biggest Super Late Model races of the season.

The speedway will pay $20,000 to the winner and has drawn praise from drivers across the county for promoting a big-money event that takes place over just a single day — June 19.

“That’s what all these big races should be,” Southern Super Series driver Casey Roderick told Short Track Scene. “Twenty to win, 15 or 10 at a minimum — one day shows. Just an hour of practice.

“You don’t have to spend money on a hotel for this. It’s just a good idea.”

Veteran racer and multi-time track champion Ross Meeuwsen was the first driver to register for the event.

The Money in the Bank will be 150 laps and caution laps will only count up to Lap 100. To offset lengthy green flag runs, a competition caution will be thrown after 50 consecutive green flag laps.

The race will be contested under the CRA Super Series technical specifications even though it is not a tour race. It is a six-tire event with drivers racing on their qualifying set with two more tires available to be taken during the race itself.

The qualifying and feature payout has been posted and looks like this:
