With the National Tour expanding in 2006, it had already been announced that next year's American Sprint Cars on Tour (ASCoT) champion will receive $50,000 of the $150,000 point fund.

The balance of the point fund payout has been determined, with the top fifteen in final ASCoT points in 2006 each earning a portion. The 2006 ASCoT point fund is as follows: 1st - $50,000; 2nd - $25,000; 3rd - $17,500; 4th - $12,500; 5th - $10,000; 6th - $7,000; 7th - $6,000; 8th - $5,000; 9th - $4,000; 10th - $3,000; 11th - $2,500; 12th - $2,250; 13th - $2,000; 14th - $1,750; 14th - $1,500.

The 2006 American Sprint Cars on Tour will consist of approximately 60 events throughout the nation, with the standard one day purse offering $4,000 to win and $500 just to start the feature, with tenth paying $1,000.

The 2006 season gets under way with East Bay Raceway Park's annual "King of the 360's" Winter Nationals near Tampa, FL, on January 26-28. The three-night event culminates with the $10,000-to-win Ronald Laney Memorial on January 28.

Preparation of the balance of the 2006 ASCoT schedule is in the final stages and will be revealed in the coming weeks.

In addition to the ASCoT, the American Sprint Car Series will also present Regional action with the existing Sooner, Gulf South, Rocky Mountain, Midwest and Southern Tours, in addition to the newly added Sprints on Dirt, Northern Plains Region and Mid-South Region.

With the expanded National Tour and the addition of three new Regions, the ASCS will present nearly 200 nights of racing throughout the country in 2006.
