RacinDirt USMTS TV Challenge pays for perfection in 2024
The 26th season for the Summit USMTS National Championship presented by RacinDirt fires off Friday, Feb. 23, at the Hunt County Raceway in Greenville, Texas, and the chase will be on for the Leon Ramirez Memorial Trophy and the season-long championship with a possible $180,000 payday for the champion, plus as much as $30,000 in the RacinDirt TV Challenge.
To receive a portion of the money, each driver must have perfect attendance at all series races. The total prize pool remains $30,000 whether one or twenty drivers qualify. The amount will be split evenly among all eligible competitors at the year-end USMTS banquet.
In addition to perfect attendance, a few other things will be required:
1. Special TV Challenge intros during A-Main driver lineups broadcast on RacinDirt. Drivers will need to be in their racesuits and availble for a Media Day event at the Humboldt Speedway on or around March 6-7 during RacinDirt USMTS King of America XIII where footage will be captured for future use.
2. Short promotional video clips will be used in the broadcast as time allows. We will record these at the Media Day event and through the season as time allows.
3. Using the promo code “RDTV2024” gets new subscribers 10% off an annual RacinDirt subscription. Every time the promo code is used, $50 will be added to the prize pool. Drivers will be encouraged to pass this code to any prospective individuals and fans who would like to follow their racing online.
4. Drivers must publicize the upcoming USMTS event one week before or Monday or Tuesday the week of the race. Use of supporting photos or images is encouraged. We ask to tag or mention both USMTS and RacinDirt in posts.
5. Following USMTS events, again post outcomes and plans. Use of supporting images also preferred. Please also mention or tag both USMTS and RacinDirt in posts.
