DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (January 26, 2001) - The Grand American Road Racing Association has announced that it will post a prize fund package of a quarter million dollars for its newly-acquired North American Street Stock Championship.

The prize package will be paid out in equal amounts during its 10-race 2001 racing season with the total split evenly among the series' four classes. First place in class will be awarded $3,000 US, second place - $2,000 US, and third place - $1,000 US. The pole winner for each class will earn an additional $250.

The manufacturer and aftermarket contingency award programs of last season have remained basically intact, with at least one new company joining the ranks. The total prize money offered by the car manufacturers and aftermarket suppliers is expected to top $1 million on the year.

"Given the loss of the series' major sponsorship, it is very gratifying to see that the automobile industry is still solidly behind this program," Grand-Am President Roger Edmondson said. "Grand-Am is making a significant contribution from its own resources to maintain the prize money level the series enjoyed during its 1999 season, and we are confident that this program will quickly regain any momentum that might have shifted during this transition."
