Steven Cantrell, of Concord, N.C., will lead the field to the green for the largest Legend Car race of the year on Tuesday and is one step closer to becoming the winner of $25,000 in the Legends Big Money 100 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Boasting a total purse of $100,000, the Legends Big Money 100, is the most prestigious Legend Car event of the year and holds one of the largest purses in all of grassroots racing.

Cantrell won the pole position by virtue of his heat race victory and his top speed in Monday’s qualifying session.

“It took a lot of hard work to get on the pole for the Legends Big Money 100,” said Cantrell. “We qualified on the pole and won our first heat race. We’re going to have to run 100 laps of good, consistent racing. Hopefully it’s really clean and green.”

The top-20 positions were determined by combined points earned from each driver’s heat race finish and qualifying time. Justin Swilling will start in second place. Last year’s runner-up in the Legends Million, Doug Stevens, will start in third followed by Brady Boswell. NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver David Ragan will start fifth after winning his heat race. Daniel Hemric, the winner of last year’s Legends Million event, will roll off the grid in the 17th position.

A total of eight Legends Big Money 100 division heat races were completed Monday to set the top-20 starting spots in Tuesday’s A-Main. The remainder of the field will be set by Tuesday’s B-Mains.

Also on Monday, five heat races were run in the Semi-Pro/Young Lions division and three in the Masters division. Like the Legends Big Money 100, the top-20 starting spots in Tuesday’s A-Main races for each division were determined from combined points earned from each driver’s heat race finish and qualifying time. The remaining 10 spots in each A-Main will be set by Tuesday’s B-Main races.

Kyle Hall, of Charlotte, N.C., was the fastest qualifier and the winner of his heat race, earning him the pole position in Semi-Pro/Young Lions division for the A-Main on Tuesday.

Ben Rhodes, Joshua Morris, Masson Massey and Trey Jarrell are among those locked in to the Semi-Pro/Young Lion A-Main.

Kevin Foisy, of Ottawa, ON, Canada, won the first of three heat races in the Masters division and was also fastest in qualifying, putting him on the pole.

As a result of their combined points from their qualifying times and heat race finishes, Tom Pistone, 2000 NASCAR Nationwide Series champion Jeff Green, Tim Brockhouse and Eddie Harwell clinched the rest of the top-five starting spots in the Masters division.

The Bandolero divisions held the first round of feature races in their two-day championship event on Monday. Bandolero feature winners included Tyler Lester, of Dallas, N.C., in the Bandolero Outlaws division and Carson Ferguson, of Charlotte, N.C., in the Bandolero Bandits/Beginner Bandits division.

The Legends Big Money 100 is a one-of-a-kind race featuring a total purse of $100,000 with the A-Main winner guaranteed to take home $25,000. The final spot in the feature is assured $1,000.

Competitors participating in the Legends Big Money 100 are registered in one of three divisions: Young Lions/Semi-Pro, Masters or the Legends Big Money 100, which is open to all drivers.

Each division will run heat races and an A-Main race, with the Legends Big Money 100 A-Main serving as the grand finale of the two-day event.

The Legends Big Money 100 event will continue Tuesday with full slates of racing for both Legend Cars and Bandoleros. Spectator gates open at 9 a.m. and feature racing begins at 1:25 p.m. Tuesday’s tickets are just $10 for adults and children ages 12 and under are free.
