The CRA Super Series released on Friday the entry form and format for the Battle at Berlin 251.

The event will be a one day show on Saturday, August 26 with two hours of practice, qualifying and a last chance race if necessary. The race will pay $15,000 to win and $1,200 to start.

The race will be a 10 tire event and will count caution laps.

It will have a five-minute break at Lap 200, during which teams will be able to change tires, add fuel and make adjustments. The top-5 drivers at the break at Lap 200 will redraw their starting positions for when racing resumes on Lap 201.

The Battle at Berlin 251 is also the second event of the CRA $100,000 Super Late Model Triple Crown, which would have paid a driver $100,000 bonus if the same driver won the Redbud 400 at Anderson Speedway, the Battle at Berlin 251 and the Winchester 400 at Winchester Speedway.

Steve Wallace won the Redbud 400 on June 24th, but he is not eligible for the $100,000 and $10,000 bonuses, because he raced full-time for several seasons in the NASCAR’s Xfinity Series — thus there will be no $100,000 bonus paid out this year.

The $10,000 bonus is still available if a driver that meets the bonus programs guidelines can win two of the remaining Triple Crown events. If no driver wins two of the Triple Crown events, the driver who accumulates the most points during those three events will receive a $5,000 bonus and the title of Triple Crown Champion.

The Battle at Berlin 251 will be the first race of the four-race CRA Super Series Chase for the Championship, introduced for the first time for the 2017 season.

Purse: 1) 15,000, 2) 7500, 3) 5000, 4) 4000, 5) 3000, 6) 2500, 7) 2300, 8) 2200, 9) 2100, 10) 2000, 11) 1900, 12) 1800, 13) 1700, 14) 1600, 15) 1500, 16) 1400, 17) 1300, 18-28) 1200
