Bullring Bash Unveils $90,000 Purse For 2019 Events

(Press release from The Bullring Bash) 

The Bullring Bash Quarter Mile Challenge will feature a purse of over $90,000 for its trio of 2019 events.

The first round of the three-race, non-points challenge will see $30,000 paid out to Modified drivers at White Mountain Motorsports Park on June 16, with $4,500 going to the racer who bests the unique race format and a minimum of $1,000 going to all starters.

“With the Bullring Bash, we’re committed to awarding strong purses for both the Modified and Legends classes,” said Bullring Bash founder Josh Vanada. “Because each of our events stand alone on the calendar, we’re able to offer more money and larger purses during the season, when our competitors need them the most. Each race purse is balanced and will pay well throughout the final running order, giving every competitor a chance to take home something significant at all three of our rounds.”

In addition to the $30,000 committed to the season opener, the second round at White Mountain Motorsports Park and the final event of 2019 at Thunder Road International Speedbowl will each see purses of $24,800 paid to Modified drivers.

These rounds will pay $3,500 to win and $800 to start. Legends drivers who compete in the Bullring Bash will also benefit from the strongest purses in the region, with well over $10,000 committed to what should be some of the deepest fields in New England.

Each Legends race will pay $4,000 in total, with $1,500 going to the winner of each 35-lap battle. Keeping with the Bullring Bash’s commitment to balanced purses throughout the running order, last place’s entry fee and pit pass will be covered by its share of the purse.

In addition to race purses, drivers will have the opportunity to earn additional cash and product considerations through a number of bonus initiatives that will be announced in the coming weeks and months leading up to the season.

When combined with race purses, the total posted awards given out during the 2019 Bullring Bash Quarter Mile Challenge will easily exceed $100,000.

  1. How about a rules package?

  2. cg cant afford says

    Honestly, I don’t know how this purse compares to MRS, and the new American Modified Series. Can anyone provide some insight? I know Tri Track has them covered. I believe Stafford open modified shows had a purse of around 24k. Based on that, it sounds like they are in the ballpark. Has the American Mod series announced any additional races outside of Waterford?

    I believe it may be tough to draw mods that far north. There isn’t a lot of Modifieds in the area to pull from and it is a good haul for the majority of modified teams based in CT. I find the race format interesting, at the very least, it is a way to differentiate their series from all the other modified series of which there are too many. I hope to get to one of their races assuming it looks like they will get a decent field. Unfortunately, it is a long haul for me along with most of the modified teams. I wish them well.

  3. If they allow more than 1 change tire I will be dissappointed in this purse considering the haul.

    MRS 4tires Max 500$ start 2000 Win
    Stafford 6tires 650$ start 3000 Win
    Tri Track 5tires 800$ start 6000 Win

  4. TonyM I agree, we need to see the rules package. Josh please help us out.

  5. James Schaefer says

    Actually, as we plan our Tri Track purses for 2019, we are very hopeful that both the Oxford and Claremont races will be $1200 to take the green.. and the Monadnock race $1100 to take the green.. Star will once again be $1000 to take the green as it was last year.

  6. It’s unfortunate that the MRS goes against the SBM..gonna hurt the cc.
    T Road against TTOM at the Dog’ another sore spot. Really hope that get adjusted.
    And Humpy in spite of your ignorant writing I DO NOT know what Matt’s plans are for 19.
    He gets through the Fla stuff first then decides what, when and where. The ROC hasn’t posted a schedule yet given the shaky state of pavement here in NY at the moment.. so we’ll have to wait on all that.
    Sorry your highness.

  7. Why didn’t Vanada use any of these ideas when he was at Thompson.

  8. old observer says

    He did use some of them with the 20/20Sprints
