May 12, 2014 – Richmond, KY -   After Mother Nature won Saturday’s race, Richmond Raceway’s Promoters are preparing for the debut of the B.O.S.S. Late Models.  The 4th Annual Rain Dodger 40 is this Saturday, May 17 paying $3,000 to win and $300 to start. Let’s hope that the Rain Dodger holds true to its name because Tackett and Son Plumbing and Electric is adding an additional $500 to the winner’s purse making it a record breaking $3,500 to win race for B.O.S.S.

In addition to B.O.S.S.,   Real Country 107.5 Modifieds, Sportsman and Four Cylinders will also be in action.  Prices for this event are $18 for ages 13 and up, $3 for ages 6-12 and 5 and under are admitted FREE in the grandstands.  Pit passes will be $35 for ages 13 and up, $5 for ages 6-12 and FREE to ages 5 and under.  Remember this is also the night we recognize the outstanding high school students for Grad Night. ALL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS ARE ADMITTED TO THE GRANDSTAND SPECTATOR SIDE FOR FREE!!  Be sure to pick up your frequent fan cards at the Dirt Stars Booth just behind the grandstand admission booth for prizes and discounts throughout the season.

In addition don’t forget to mark your calendar for the $300 to win Four Cylinder Fury that will be taking place next Saturday, May 24.  Drivers be sure to get to the draw line quickly.  Every driver must have a driver card and W-9 form filled out prior to receiving any winning money.  These documents can also be found on the website.  You can print them out and have them ready so you can avoid the long lines at the track.
