With the first race of the four-event LSX Challenge series kicking off next week in Commerce, Georgia, the NMCA has announced major upgrades to the series, including points funds and championship rings for all five race classes, and increased payouts for the heads-up classes at three of the four events as well.
Thanks to payouts deeper into the field, and a great incentive for racers to make more of the events, this year’s LSX Challenge should see significant increases in participation with both improved quality and quantity in the lanes. Per ProMedia President Steve Wolcott, “This is a very BIG deal as it elevates the status of the LSX series to the next level.”
LSX Challenge Series Announces Points Fund & Championship Rings for All Classes and Increased Heads-Up Purses
Santa Ana, CA – The NMCA is proud to announce that Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center, the host Chevrolet Performance dealer at all LSX Challenge Series events, has stepped-up to the plate and is offering a points fund and LSX championship rings for all 5 classes and increased payouts for 3 heads-up classes at 3 select events in 2014. The all-new LSX points fund provides bonus year-end payouts to the top-3 in each class at the end of the 2014 season. With big money up for grabs you can expect the competition at all LSX Challenge Series events to be off the hook! The 2014 LSX Championship Points Fund will pay the following:
- JE Pistons Drag Radial: $3,000 to #1; $1,500 to #2; and $750 to #3
- ERL Performance All Motor: $2,000 to #1; $1,000 to #2; and $500 to #3
- Holley EFI Real Street: $1,500 to #1; $750 to #2; and $375 to #3
- Proform LSX Rumble: $1,000 to #1; $500 to #2; and $250 to #3
- LME 5th Gen Camaro: $1,000 to #1; $500 to #2; and $250 to #3
Each LSX class champion will also take home a highly coveted and exclusive LSX world champion ring that clearly separates #1 from the rest of the pack. These championship rings, presented by Chevrolet Performance and Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center, will be presented to each LSX class champion at the 2014 Performance Racing Industry Trade Show held each December in Indianapolis, IN.
In addition to the points fund, Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center and Chevrolet Performance will also increase LSX racer payouts to more competitors. Beginning with the first LSX event of the year, the Chevy High Performance (All-GM) Nationals, payouts will be increased to include the “eighths,” which means the #9 through #16 finishers will take home bonus cash. The following “eighths” payouts will be made to the 3 LSX heads-up class finishers at each of 3 select events:
- JE Pistons Drag Radial: $125
- ERL All Motor: $100
- Holley EFI Real Street: $75
The three 2014 events that qualify for these increased LSX heads-up racer payouts are:
- 3rd Annual Chevy High Performance (All-GM) Nationals – Commerce, GA – May 30 – June 1
- 8th Annual JE Pistons NMCA Muscle Car Nationals – Norwalk, OH – August 21-24
- 13th Annual FEL-PRO NMCA World Street Finals / LSX Shootout – Indy, IN – October 9-12
Racers competing for the championship must participate in three of four LSX Challenge Series races, including the LSX Shootout. The results of each race will be tracked throughout the season in NMCA’s Fastest Street Car.
Along with supporting the LSX Shootout series, Chevrolet Performance enables racers to compete and win with a growing range of LSX maximum-performance crate engines and Chevrolet Performance engine parts. Chevrolet Performance and NMCA’s family of sponsors post valuable racer contingencies for all LSX race classes in 2014. Chevrolet Performance will be well represented by its host dealer, Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center, at all LSX Challenge Series events. Be sure to visit with Scoggin-Dickey personnel to answer tech questions and explain the key attributes of the latest parts.
