Motorsports Designs to Reward Best Appearing Team
When the world's top dirt late model teams invade The Dirt Track @ Lowe's Motor Speedway April 20-21 for the Circle K Colossal 100 it will be financially rewarding for the drivers and crew members to don their "Sunday best."
Motorsports Designs, which has been producing decals and graphics for the motorsports industry for over 20 years, is sponsoring the Best Appearing Team award and the winner will receive $5,000 off the purchase of a full-trailer wrap decal, $500 cash and a commemorative trophy.
Officials of Motorsports Designs and The Dirt Track @ Lowe's Motor Speedway will determine the winner based on the team's overall appearance.
"We're looking for the team that portrays the most professional appearance both on and off the track. We're looking at the team uniforms, pit area, hauler and car for their cohesiveness and overall look," said Frank Bolter, sales manager for Motorsports Designs.
In its second year, the Circle K Colossal 100 is one of the nation's premier dirt late model events. Over 100 drivers have filed entries for the event and defending winner Scott Bloomquist, 360 OTC World of Outlaws Late Model Series champion Tim McCreadie, Billy Moyer, Steve Francis and Earl Pearson Jr. are among those expected to challenge for the $50,000 first-prize.
The Friday night portion of the Circle K Colossal 100 will feature group time trials and 10 heat races. The top two finishers in each heat will secure a spot in the 100-lap finale and a draw will determine the starting lineup.
Saturday night's program begins with the Circle K Pit Party and the on-track action includes at least four additional qualifying races prior to the main event. The race is part of the 360 OTC World of Outlaws Late Model Series, but The Dirt Track's traditional format, including the extremely popular double-file restarts, will be utilized.
If purchased in advance, reserved tickets for both Friday and Saturday nights are $49 for adults and $19 for children ages 12 and under.
Two day pit passes are $60 in advance. Tickets and pit passes for the April 20-21 Circle K Colossal 100 can be purchased online at www.charlottemotorspeedway.com or by calling 1-800-455-FANS.
