Prize Pool - Valvoline Rounds
The minimum prize pool at Valvoline Raceway club rounds is $250 (based on minimum 15 cars).
While reaching the podium brings some decent prize money, the payouts don't stop there, as we invest back into our members too. Any driver taking the green light in the A Main at the end of the night will at least receive their nomination fee back after the event by EFT.
Higher field numbers, blue ribbon events and title events will generally generate a higher purse.
Attendance Money / Other Venues
Some promoters and venues do pay "tow money". Nomination fee's and prize pools can vary too as a means to offset cost for drivers.
"Tow money" does not apply at Nowra Speedway (or Valvoline Raceway) as these are considered inside our club members area. No nomination fee is paid at Nowra and prize money is not awarded unless advised prior by promoters via sponsorship packages nominated for the event.
The Gilgandra country series event is generally supported by assistance with "tow money" and prize money is not awarded unless advised prior by promoters via sponsorship packages nominated for the event.
We recommend speaking to the promoters of events further abroad or interstate well in advance of the meeting to avoid confusion or disappointment.
