11.06.2013 - SPECIAL PRO GAS ANIMAL $50 ENTRY FEE AT DAYTONA DIRT

Only $100 entry fee to run two classes

CONCORD, N.C. – Racers looking to compete in the new Briggs & Stratton Racing Pro Gas Animal classes that will run Sunday, December 29 at the WKA / Tri-State Daytona Dirt World Championships will be able to do so at a very reasonable cost.

WKA has posted a special $50 entry fee for both the Gas Animal trophy class and the big $2,000-To-Win Pro Gas Animal, meaning racers can run both classes for just a $100 entry fee.

Racers competing in Pro Gas Animal must run the Gas Animal trophy class.

The Pro Gas Animal has received a tremendous amount of buzz since it’s announcement a couple weeks ago. The division will not only pay $2,000 to the winner, but each of the top-five finishers will win a new Briggs & Stratton Racing WKA Pro Gas engine. The class winner’s engine will be race-ready while second- through fifth-place finishers will win Briggs Pro Gas Animal engine kits.

The Pro Gas Animal has served as a less-expensive alternative to the traditional methanol-powered Animal.  Here are some of the benefits to the Pro Gas Animal engine as opposed to the methanol.
