Enhanced Program Spices O'Reilly/NCRA Modified Rookie of the Year Competition
A new, separate points system and an expanded prize package will provide even more incentive and excitement for this year's O'Reilly/NCRA Modified Rookie of the Year competitors.
For the first time ever, the NCRA will use a separate points system to determine its top modified rookie. These points are in addition to and separate from any regular points the driver receives.
The top 10 rookie competitors in each A feature will receive points on a 20-18-16-14-12-10-9-8-7-6 basis. For those rookies who run a B feature but don't advance, the top six will receive points on a 10-9-8-7-6-5 basis.
Six corporate sponsors will provide more than $1,100 in cash and prizes for the top rookie modified driver in 2005.
"Through the generosity of our sponsors, contingency awards provide a great opportunity for our drivers to receive additional prizes for their efforts," said NCRA president C. Ray Hall.
"Without a doubt, this is the best year ever for awards to our modified rookie driver of the year," Hall said. "We encourage our race family to loyally support our contingency sponsors."
Last year only the series title sponsor, O'Reilly Auto Parts from Springfield, Mo., and Arizona Sports Shirts, of Indianapolis, provided awards for the NCRA's top modified rookie.
This year, O'Reilly will continue to give $500 in cash to the top modified rookie. Arizona Sports Shirts is still on board and will provide a certificate worth $600 of free artwork to the top rookie in the division. RCI will also award a fuel cell to the top modified rookie.
