Purse is huge. That has to be as much as many Whelen Tour races (at least before the purse bump this year)
I too hope it draws outsiders, and the fans come out in droves. We always say we want tour mod races - can't argue with this effort. Hopefully enough time to convince some of those outsiders.
Regarding the outsider pool... ROC is running at Lancaster, Mahoning has a 75 lapper that night, and Riverhead is running. Bowman Gray has a 150 lapper. Evergreen has no show that weekend, nor does VMRS or SMRS.
