Myrtle Beach Speedway Unveils Daytona 1 Beach Madnessby Press Release November 10, 2016 0 comments
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – Myrtle Beach Speedway and Daytona 1 are bringing the Dash for Cash concept back to local Late Model racing. Beach Madness will bring excitement for drivers and fans to the entire 2017 season as the elimination style contest will culminate in a $5,000 payout to one driver at the conclusion of the Myrtle Beach 400. The highest finishing, eligible driver, at the end of the 400 will take home the big check. The drivers competing for the Beach Madness bonus will be the only track provisionals in the 2017 Myrtle Beach 400.
There are three means of qualifying for the Beach Madness jackpot. First is the Daytona 1 Beach Madness Tournament. Drivers register between November 1st 2016 and March 1st2017. A live drawing on March 4th will place drivers into one of four brackets. Through the first five races of the season drivers will count their best four races to accumulate points in a head-to-head matchup with one other driver in their bracket. The driver with the better point total in this Practice Round will advance, the driver with the lesser total will be eliminated. The next five races of the season will comprise the Qualifying Round. Just like the Practice Round, drivers will accumulate their best points from four of the five races in their head-to-head matchup. The winners advance, the losers are eliminated. The final round, The Main Event Round, will proceed just like the previous two. The best point total between two matched drivers will receive a Gold invitation to the Daytona 1 Beach Madness Dash for Cash. A selection committee will seed drivers into brackets based on past results, strength of fields, and other criteria.
The second method of qualifying for the Daytona 1 Beach Madness Dash for Cash is the BattleBack Wild Card. The 50 lap sprint race will be held on a race date yet to be determined in October. Any driver who competed in and was eliminated from the Daytona 1 Beach Madness Tournament will be eligible for the BattleBack Wild Card. The top two finishers in the BattleBack Wild Card will receive Silver invitations to the Daytona 1 Beach Madness Dash for Cash. Drivers must compete in at least eight races during the 2017 season to be eligible for the BattleBack Wild Card.
The third way drivers can qualify for the Daytona 1 Beach Madness Dash for Cash is to win their way in. The victor in the IceBreaker February 11th and the Sun Fun July 2nd along with the Myrtle Beach Speedway Track Champion will receive Silver invitations, assuming they have not qualified for a Gold invite through the Daytona 1 Beach Madness Tournament. The IceBreaker and Sun Fun winners must contest at least five races during the 2017 season to be eligible for their Silver invitations.
A Gold invitation entitles the driver to receive a FREE driver pit pass and a FREE set of tires for the Myrtle Beach 400 weekend. A Silver invitation affords a driver a FREE driver pit pass and 20 gallons of FREE fuel for the Myrtle Beach 400 weekend.
Fans will also have an opportunity to participate in the excitement of the Daytona 1 Beach Madness. Any fan that turns in a completed prediction bracket between March 4th and March 18th. After the tournament has concluded, any fan with a perfect bracket will be asked to predict the two drivers that will advance from the BattleBack Wild Card. Any fans who have a perfect bracket and select the two drivers to advance will then select the driver they feel will win the Daytona 1 Beach Madness Dash for Cash. The tie breaker will be the expected starting and finishing position for the eventual Dash winner.
