XCEL CHASSIS ANNOUNCES BIGGER PAYOUTS AND THE RELEASE OF THE 2013 SCHEDULE
"Everybody can appreciate a winner. Xcel Chassis wants to show every driver who attends an Xcel Chassis modified race that they are appreciated." stated Xcel founder Doug Borger. You can understand what he means with the release of the 2013 tour race payout and the season points payout given at the year's end banquet.
The biggest news coming from the Kunkletown, Pa shop is the money increase and sponsor awards to the top ten in tour points. As the saying goes "Cash is King" and that's what you'll find in your envelope. Doug has secured additional incentives with Pyrotech, S&D Bodylines, Kirkey Seats and Real Wheels to sweeten the payouts. Factor X Graffics donated $2000 towards the point fund given to the top ten tour drivers.
The champion will now walk out of the banquet $2000 richer and a new frame & body kit. This will put the total at $5300 making it the biggest payout in tour history and it just doesn't stop there. Pyrotech will supply the second place finisher with a carbon fiber helmet, 2 layer suit, gloves and shoes then add in the $1600 payout, that makes a $2906 paycheck. $1400 and an engine supplied by Xcel Chassis brings third place in points a total of $2600. 4th place will take home a new body supplied by S&D Bodylines and Xcel Chassis and $1200,totaling $1850, to start the year off. The fifth place will have a total of $1520 with a set of new rims provided by Real Wheels and $1000 in their pocket. Sixth and Seventh places will both receive a $250 certificate off of a Kirky race seat with 6th place bringing $800 home and 7th place a $600 payday. The totals for sixth place will be $1050 and seventh will be $850. Eighth place receives $400. Ninth receives $300 and 10th receives $200. Incentives will be announced shortly for these positions.
"I am pleased on everything that has come together so early in the season. It started at the year end meeting held in October. I put together 3 payout options for the drivers that are running the tour where the majority vote would decide the payout for the 2013 season. The option that was decided on will pay more money thru the entire field and includes $25 tow money to the non qualifiers with a $20 entry fee. The winner will bring home $355 after the car passes tech and everybody will get a pay envelope at the end of the night", explained Borger," You never know how the night is gonna end up but knowing you will get back the entry fee helps."
The 2013 Motorsports Show held at the Greater Phila. Expo Center will be host to the first Autograph Night for the Xcel Chassis series. On tap to appear on Saturday Jan. 19th from 5pm till 6pm will be 2012 Champion Ryan Higgs, 2012 Rookie of the Year Abbey Price, 2011 champion Nick Mady, Most Popular driver Joe Fanelli, 2009 Champion Eric Whitby, 2012 Lindas Champion Justin Schraden, Borgers 2012 Champion Tim VanHorn Jr., 2012 Thunder Mt.

A variety of drivers will be available thru out the weekend along with cars on display and hand outs full of information for the upcoming season and the series itself.
The most anticipated release over the winter is the schedule for the 2013 season. Xcel Chassis along with Penn Can Speedway and Lindas Speedway have released the 600 modified schedule. Penn Can will host the mighty modifieds weekly for the first time this season and Lindas Speedway returns for a third season. Both tracks run under the Xcel Chassis sanction and rules except for weekly payouts, handicapping and the final points which are decided by the tracks themselves. The Xcel Chassis tour division will be returning to some favorites and will add Path Valley Speedway Park along with Dunn Hill 2 Speedway. The tour division will see a 50 lapper return to Lindas and Shippensburg Speedway will host the modifieds two times with the August race having increased laps and purse.
Doug Borger wants to remind everyone that all cars must be inspected by Xcel Chassis and all motors must be resealed before opening day. No inspections will be done at any track and any car or motor not done will not be permitted to race at any Xcel Chassis sanction event." At the end of 2012, I decided to reseal all the motors. If your car currently has an old seal on it, you must still have the motor resealed or you won't be able to race. It's not a matter of you racing then be disqualified, the car will not be allowed on the track without an inspection sticker and a new seal. This includes all Xcel Chassis sanctioned events for the 2013 season. Everybody starts off the year on the same playing field and it's only fair to the guys that take the time to do it the right way. I tell everyone to call me and we can set up a time to have it done. Before you know it, the snow is gone and the season is here." Car owners are also reminded to register your number for the 2013 season along with updating information. There is no registration fee and is on a first come first serve basis. You can find the registration form and schedule on the 600 modified forum board @ xcel600modified.proboards.com and while you're there sign up to be a member.
Look for 2013 to be a bust out season for the 600modifieds. Xcel Chassis will have a booth at the Len Sammons 2013 Motorsports Show Jan. 18th thru 20th and the Motorama Show Feb. 16th and 17th. You can visit xcel600modified.proboards.com for the latest updates thru out the year.
