Purse, Provisionals Announced for TCM Special Events 300 iRacing Event in November
NEPS, Sim 500 and ECWL drivers could qualify for provisionals for TCM 300
The TCM Special Events 300 is set to go green in less than two weeks and with over 90 entries for the event, it is shaping up to be a big kick off for the 2020-21 off-season.
The five day iRacing event, culminating with a 300-lap Super Late Model race at the virtual Southern National Motorsports Park, will carry a base purse of $250 with upwards of an additional $180 to be paid out to Qualifying Night winners from November 16th, 17th and 18th. Should additional sponsorship be found, the purse is expected to grow.
The winner of each Qualifying Night feature will receive $20. They will also receive the option to take the Pole Challenge, where they can add an additional $20 to their Qualifying Night winnings by dropping to the rear of the field for Friday’s feature. The top finishing Qualifying Night winner who takes the challenge will receive an additional $20. Should the driver come from the rear and win the race, they would receive an additional $40 for a grand total, including purse money from the 300, of $200.
The top ten drivers in the TCM Special Events iRacing 300 will receive a payout. The breakdown is as follows;
1st – $100
2nd – $50
3rd – $25
4th – $20
5th – $15
6th through 10th – $10

Vidane TV Provisionals offer leagues a chance to compete in TCM Special Events 300
The TCM Special Events 300 is open to the public though drivers from three leagues that are spotlighted on Vidane TV will have a shot at earning a provisional start in the main event.
The New England Pennsylvania (NEP) Series, the East Coast Winter League (ECWL) and Sim500 will each have a “Vidane TV” provisional set aside for them should each league have a minimum of ten drivers represented in the TCM Special Events 300 Qualifying Night action. Currently, NEPS driver Jason Ricker and Sim500 regulars Richard Beasley and Josh Parker have already filed entries for the 300. A fourth provisional will be given to the top driver from the 2020 TCM All Star Showcase that fails to qualify into the 300. All drivers that are selected for provisionals must make an attempt to qualify for the feature through their respective qualifying night. Should ten or more drivers not attempt to qualify from a respective league, that provisional will be turned into a promoters option.
