BATAVIA, OHIO (August 21, 2018) - The nation’s top dirt late model drivers will soon converge in Mansfield, Ohio to battle in the highest paying dirt late model event of the season.

The inaugural Dirt Million, which takes place August 24th-25th at Mansfield Motor Speedway, boasts one of the richest purses in history. The total purse is currently in excess of $370,000, making the winners share of the 100-lap main event over $185,000. The 28-car field will pay over $3,700 to start, based on the current Dirt Million Ticker.

The unique format allows dirt racing families, friends, sponsors, fans, and teams everywhere in the world to play a role in building the feature’s payoff. A portion of every ticket, camping reservation, VIP suite and pay-per-view sold will go directly to the growing purse, making the payoff ever-more lucrative.

The purse will continue to increase until opening ceremonies on Saturday, August 25th. It will be posted on the “ticker” which keeps track of the total current purse at that moment - in real-time. To learn more or become involved, visit: www.dirtmillion.com.

Friday’s on-track action will feature two complete shows for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, each boasting a $10,000 top prize. The field will be split into Duel #1 and Duel #2, based on pill draw. Each Duel will include a complete program of Miller Welders Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains, and a 30-lap, $10,000-to-win main event. Saturday’s line-ups will be based on the finishing positions from Friday’s races.

Saturday’s activities will kick off with Heat Races, followed by the Dirt Million Dash (comprised of the top 4 finishers from each Duel). The finish of the dash will set the first eight starting positions in the Dirt Million. Afterwards, B-Mains will be held, followed by the 100-lap, Dirt Million main event.
