New Richmond, WI (July 18, 2016): With driver voting ending at midnight July 17th, the FANSFund team has blown past their fund raising goal and has raised enough money to now invite 13 drivers! The goal is still to invite 8 New drivers, 2 All Star drivers, 1 Legend driver, and 1 At Large driver. We will then invite the driver with the highest amount of votes regardless of driver category to make up the 13 drivers.
Congratulations to Bloomington, Illinois driver Jason Feger on winning this year’s FANSFund voting! Always a fan favorite, Jason’s reward for winning the voting will be starting on the pole position for the FANSFund Dash. Congratulation also go out to the other drivers that were voted in. For the full breakdown of final driver voting checkout the driver voting link on our website.
The FANSFuns team now starts the process of contacting the drivers voted in to obtain their final commitment to attend the USA Nationals and participate in this year’s FANSFund events. Including a 12 lap FANSFund Dash where the drivers will line up based on voting order. The FANSFund Dash will have a purse of at least $24,550, paying $2,500 to win and at least $1,500 to start, with the top five finishers taking home $2,000 or more! In the coming days, we’ll post another announcement with the 13 drivers that have accepted our invitation.
