Beyond the increased purse, Western PA Speedweek remains enticing for the winged warriors due to the limited amount of travel required to compete in all five nights, with the round-trip total clocking in at exactly 259 miles from beginning to end. Local Western PA teams have the ability to return home and to their shops each night, while any invaders have the unique opportunity of racing five consecutive nights at tracks so closely connected together.
Though details have yet to be finalized, the 2022 Western PA Speedweek point fund will at a minimum match what was paid out in 2021. Last summer’s champion earned $2,500 with the full breakdown looking like this: 1. $2500, 2. $1500, 3. $1000, 4. $750, 5. $500, 6-10. $250
Additional details will also be released in the near future regarding the nightly Quick Time, Hard Charger, Hard Luck and Loyalty awards that will indeed be returning in 2022.
