BIG PLANS FOR K&N SPRING FLINGS VEGAS/BRISTOL 2014
Next year marks the fifth anniversary of the K&N Spring Fling series of races promoted by Peter Biondo and Kyle Seipel. Normally an anniversary reserved for wood, the Spring Fling will be awarding money… and lots it. And along with the money will be some important changes for both the Spring Fling Vegas event and the Spring Fling 20s held in Bristol, Tennessee.
The K&N Spring Fling Vegas event will be held on the weekend of April 3-6. Last year’s inaugural event gave the west coast racers just what they were looking for as over 400 racers flocked to The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this past April. Based on the popularity of the race, the change for 2014 in Vegas is all about huge purse increases for both classes. For Thursday’s Warm-Up race, the Super Pro winner will take home $5,000 while the Pro winner earns $3,000. Friday through Sunday’s events will feature a $10K, $20K and $10K respectively for the Super Pro winner, while Pro runs for $5K, $10K and $5K.
As for the K&N Spring Fling 20s in Bristol, here’s where the real change takes place. Seipel said, “Because of how quickly this race has grown, we wanted to grow with it and make it more of an event so we decided to make the change to a true 5-Day event.”
Enter the NEW K&N Spring Fling 5 Day. The three traditional $20,000-to-win main events will stay in place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Bookending the main events will be a $15,000 to win Warm-Up race on Wednesday and another $15,000 to win event on Sunday. As is always the case, the entire 5 Day purse is 100% guaranteed.
“Both Peter and I are extremely happy with the support we’ve received from the racing community and from our many sponsors,” Seipel added. “Without either group, the K&N series of races would not have been as successful as they are. And because of this, we only feel it right to give back to the racers with the increases we’ve outlined.”
Biondo said, “Better purses and more days of racing leads to a better value and better experience for the racers. As a racer, I know first hand that more track time and more chances at winning money is always more fun. Both Vegas and Bristol are going to be very exciting this year!”
The dates for the
K&N Spring Fling 5 Day in Bristol will be May 14-18. Both
events will feature the same format of awards with over
$25,000 in products given away as well as a live feed on the
Internet. Please visit
