In addition to the prestige and cash prizes that go with winning the JEGS Allstars competition, racers in the annual Sportsman-racer clash this year will also be vying for JEGS Performance Gift Cards during competition Friday at the Denso Spark Plugs NHRA U.S. Nationals. Racers will be vying for both individual and team championship at the special event.
“With COVID-19 guidelines in place we had to change things up a little this year for the JEGS Allstars race,” said Scott “Woody” Woodruff, JEGS Director of Media & Motorsports. “We aren’t able to have the annual Friday night BBQ kick-off party as in years past, so we talked about what we could do for the racers. After having great success with a bounty program during the JEGS SPORTSnationals at National Trail Raceway we decided to do the same type of thing at the JEGS Allstars race this year. All of the division directors, announcers and marketing personnel came up with a fun list of ways to win JEGS gift certificates during the event. We really think this will help create some added excitement during the event for the racers, their families, the fans, and all seven divisions.”
The single biggest bonus payout, a cool $500, will go to the MVP of the winning team as voted on by members of that team.
There also will be $250 bounties on the defending event champions –- Joey Severance (Top Alcohol Dragster), Ray Drew (Top Alcohol Funny Car), Frank Aragona Jr. (Comp), Jeff Dona (Super Stock), Jeff Lopez (Stock), Christopher Dodd (Super Comp), John Labbous Jr. (Super Gas), Cy Hill (Super Street), Darian Boesch (Top Dragster), and Kynon Dinkel (Top Sportsman) -- for anyone who can defeat them, as well as performance-based awards for tightest win margin, best package (a combination of reaction time and close to the dial-in/index), a best reaction time award in Comp, and holeshot payouts for competitors in Top Alcohol Dragster and Top Alcohol Funny Car.
“We are all excited to have the JEGS Allstars Race take place on the biggest stage our sport has to offer at the most historic track on the NHRA schedule,” said Woodruff. “I can tell you first-hand how excited the racers are to have the most prestigious sportsman event in drag racing at the U.S. Nationals.”
