The Jim Butner Auto Group $20,000 bonus and $5,000 Perfect Run award
Stock and Super Stock racers will have the opportunity to score a $20,000 bonus on top of their race winnings at the Johnson’s Horsepowered Garage Southern Sportsman Showdown. Jim Butner Auto Group, of Clarksville, Indiana, is forking over the big-buck bonus if a racer enters the Summit Sportsman Standout points series and pulls off the large task of winning each of the Mickey Thompson $20,000 events.

In addition to the $20,000 bonus for a racer entered in the Summit Sportsman Standout points series who goes on to win all three of the Mickey Thompson $20,000 events, Jim Butner Auto Group has pledged a $5,000 prize for the first perfect run during eliminations. There is one $5,000 prize up for grabs, so if the perfect run is not made during eliminations of the first Mickey Thompson $20,000 race, the opportunity will carry over to the second and/or third Mickey Thompson $20,000-to-win event of the weekend. The award does not extend to Saturday’s Holley Performance 64-Car Shootout.
