1320X Launches July 4th – BIG $$$ Purses!!!!
It’s billed as a celebration of a lifestyle-community of racers who love the sport of grassroots drag racing, fast cars and great music. But it’s much more than that.
From the producers of PINKS brings a series of regional drag racing events held around the country to combine the racing with a festival atmosphere, a manufacturer’s midway and a car show, all merged to provide filming content for the www.1320x.com web portal. Spectators will also play a major role in the series as voting will take place to award their favorite cars with prizes and the chance to compete in a “shootout” at the end of the day.
Four distinct classes will be represented, Open Comp, Grudge, Outlaw Drag Radial and Outlaw 10.5.
The following purses will be awarded:
OUTLAW 10.5: $10,000 to WIN, $2,000 to RUNNER UP and $500 for SEMI’S. It is a maximum of 50 cars with a 16 car field.
OUTLAW DRAG RADIAL: $5,000 to WIN, $1,000 to RUNNER UP and $250 for SEMI’S. It is a maximum of 50 cars with a 16 car field.
OPEN COMP: $1,000 to WIN, $250 to RUNNER UP and $100 for SEMI’S. It is a maximum of 300 cars.
In Open Comp qualifying sessions, spectators will vote their top choice of vehicles. The top four cars from each brand; Ford, Chevy, Buick/Olds/Pontiac and Mopar; will be selected to compete in a bracket-style tournament, with one winner standing at the end receiving the coveted Manufacturer’s Cup trophy.
The Grudge category will involve a person applying online to race each other, after which the 1320X staff will select ten matches to be filmed and placed on the 1320X.com’s video portal. To apply online go to 1320x.com, only 10 pairs will be accepted.
The Outlaw Drag Radial and Outlaw 10.5 classes are some of the fastest and most revered classes in drag racing today. Most will use a number of different power-adders to increase horsepower, making some of these vehicles capable of six and seven second elapsed times. For information on class rules go to 1320x.com.
