Record Payout for Seymour Speedway Spring Thaw April 10

(Seymour, WI) – Drivers will welcome a 100 percent, guaranteed payout during NEW DIRT's first ever Spring Thaw on Saturday, April 10 at Seymour Speedway. The first green flag is scheduled to fly at high noon.

The show boasts seven classes and will be the first track in northeast Wisconsin to open it's doors for the 2010 season. "The biggest reason we wanted to do this was it's so hard to schedule a big special in September," said NEW DIRT President Dave "Cosmo" Rihm. "We're rolling the dice but we're taking a chance. We want to start this show and run a bulk of it in the afternoon when it's warmer. We'd like to get done early so the fans can meet the drivers on a Saturday night."

All drivers are guaranteed to make back their entry fee. "If a late model driver, for example, doesn't make the show, he'll go home with $175, their entry fee for two days," said Rihm. On Friday April 9 an inspection and a "test and tune" will take place from noon to 7 p.m. That practice session is free of charge to the public. Crew members will be charged $15.00 on Friday night and $25.00 on Saturday. You can check out the flyer for this show, including a driver's payout for each class.
