Teams running Electric City 167 – a combined Late Model/Pro Late Model showdown – will now have an even bigger payday, thanks to Steve Powell and Custom Mobile Wash. Powell, himself a Late Model racer will be paying $10.00 to the leader of every lap, for a total of $1670. The pole qualifier will also pocket an extra $250. To make things even more interesting, Powell and track owner/promoter will have the fastest qualifier roll the dice to invert as many as 10 starters.
“It’s a great way to add some extra excitement to the longest main event on Sunday afternoon’s line-up,” said J.P. Josiasse. “Having sponsors like Steve Powell and his team at Custom Mobile Wash step-up to the plate to offer the teams some extra money is what makes Autumn Colours one of the most prestigious shows in the province.”
