Chance for Regional SLM Driver to Collect $20,000 at VMS
Carnesville, GA – With the USA 100 slated for Saturday, June 15 at Virginia Motor Speedway, a true regional Super Late Model driver will have the opportunity to collect a career-high payday. The 43rd Annual USA 100 will pay $20,000 to the winner of the 60-lap feature, with a full purse of over $56,000.
One year ago, Tyler Bare of Rockbridge Baths, Virginia won the USA 100 in just his eighth outing in the car, earning not only his first Super Late Model win, but also the biggest win of his career. With the Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model Series racing on June 15, a regional Super Late Model team can repeat the success that Bare saw in 2018 at Virginia Motor Speedway.
The 2018 USA 100 provided fans with plenty of drama with Bare taking the lead with just four laps remaining. Bare was able to hold off Brandon Overton and Dale McDowell in the closing laps.
