The largest offseason addition to the series is the partnership with Solid Rock Carriers. The La Grange, N.C.-based company has become the title partner of the CARS Tour. As a result, purses for all Late Model Stock and Super Late Model races have increased by 12.5 percent.
Super Late Model drivers will also have the opportunity to compete in the “Rowdy Manufacturing Super Challenge.” Champions of major Super Late Model series and winners of major Super Late Model races in 2019 will earn an additional $10,000 if they win a CARS Tour Super Late Model race. The full list of eligible drivers is included below.
While Super Late Model drivers will compete for the “Rowdy Manufacturing Super Challenge,” Late Model Stock drivers will compete for the “Bonus of Champions.” Selected State and Track Champions who are not part of the Lucas Oil Touring 12 will earn $200 for competing in a CARS Tour Late Model Stock race in 2020. The full list of eligible drivers is included below. In addition, LMSC drivers will earn a $500 loyalty bonus for running three consecutive CARS Tour Late Model Stock races and another $500 at South Boston Speedway for competing in every race throughout the season. Furthermore, drivers who are in the top three of their home track’s Late Model Stock points standings will be eligible for the Circle Track Warehouse Hometown Hero award and a free set of Hoosier Tires when the CARS Tour visits that track.
The 2020 Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour season begins March 7 at Southern National Motorsports Park with the $10,000-to-win Solid Rock Carriers 300 presented by SRI Performance.
