Progressive Bounty Placed on Brittany Cockramby Press Release June 3, 2014 0 comments
CALLAWAY, VA :: Brittany Cockram has won three consecutive races in the Mod-4 division and four races total. In fact, she has won every race she has started this season. Now, it is bounty time again at Franklin County Speedway.
Track promoter Langley Austin has put an incremental bounty on Cockram ahead of Saturday night’s Cavalier Equipment King of the Bullring. Much like the bounty placed on Danny Bush a few races ago, the bounty offers up to $1,000 in bonus money to beat Brittany Cockram.
“Cockram’s just been unbeatable this year,” Austin said. “She’s won four races this year and, in fact, has won every race she’s started.”
The bounty will once again be a car count based incremental bounty. $200 will be offered no matter the car count with additional money available for larger car counts starting at 12 cars. With at least 12 cars the bounty will increase to $350 or $500 for car counts larger than 15 cars. 20 cars will increase the bounty to $650, 25 cars $800 or $1,000 for 30 or more cars.
Typical bounty rules will apply with qualifying followed the riding of the bull setting the lineup and no handicap being placed on Cockram. Cockram cannot be wrecked or intentionally slowed and she must finish the race competitively for the bounty to be paid. Additionally, Cockram can collect the bounty if she elects to start at the rear of the field, if 12 or more cars start the event.
“A thousand dollar payout for a Mod-4 driver would be unprecedented,” Austin remarked. “The Mod-4 division typically puts on a good show just about anywhere and with up to $1,000 on the line, I imagine Brittany will face the toughest challenge she’s faced all year.”
The Mod-4 race will be a part of an eight division card during Saturday night’s Cavalier Equipment King of the Bullring. Also on the card will be the Late Model Stock Cars, Mini-Cups, Southern Ground Pounders, Street Stocks, U-CARS, Street ModZ and the Beginner Mini Cups. Qualifying will start at 5pm with green flag racing beginning at 7pm. Tickets are $25 per carload, $10 for general admission, $5 for kids ages 6-12 and kids five and under admitted free.
