Jamaica, VA - It is finally race week for Pro Late Model racing's richest weekend this Friday and Saturday, September 23-24, 2022, at Virginia Motor Speedway. The $50,000 to win FASTRAK World Championship presented by Dealer Group USA will attract some of the country's top talent to see who will be crowned World Champion and become a legend.

Track officials are busy preparing the facilities for what is expected to be another record car count. The weekend will again put the spotlight squarely on the country's best Pro Late Model drivers. This mega race will pay the winner a whopping $50,000.

The weekend will also include a $1500 to win non-qualifiers race for the fastest twenty-four cars from qualifying that don't make the A-Main.

It all kicks off Friday, September 23rd, with registration, tech, two rounds of hots laps, qualifying, and heats for the FASTRAK Pro Late Model competitors.

The following night Saturday, September 24th, the FASTRAK Pro Late Model competitors will have B Main(s), the 60-lap $50,000 feature, and the non-qualifiers race. The 60-lap $50,000 to win feature will consist of two 30-lap segments with a 10-minute pit stop in the middle. The driver leading at halfway will receive $1000 cash. During the break, drivers will be permitted to make adjustments and change the right rear tire only, all within a 10-minute time limit.

Also, there will be a drawing for a new GM604 crate engine worth $7500 for the competitors that do not make either feature. The winner will take that engine when they leave for home.

The event is open to all Pro Late Model competitors. The event will run under FASTRAK rules, with all series seals being legal, with the tire rule being FT200/FT400. In the event of rain, Sunday, September 25th, is scheduled as the rain date.
