MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY POSTS PAYOUTS FOR 2023 SEASON!
MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY is excited to provide 2023 payouts for racers, media representatives and fans alike. Visit the "Drivers Center" page here at the official MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY web site and scroll down to the "PAYOUT" section. The "Drivers Center" page has a visual image of the 2023 Payout, as well as a printable image version.

MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY Promoter Tyrone Lingenfelter and Speedway owner Bob Timm, unveiled the 2023 payouts via social media, with the following comments,

"A BIG thank you goes out to our class sponsors as well as everyone that stepped up again this season as part of our Purse Enhancement Program.
  • Class Sponsors
  • Kevko Oil Pans and Components USRA Modifieds
  • Buffalo Saloon USRA Late Models
  • Centerville Welding And Repair USRA Stock Cars
  • The Black Horse Bar and Grill USRA B-Mods
  • Horman HVAC LLC USRA Hobby Stocks

  • Purse Enhancement Sponsors
  • Race-Leader.com
  • Schott's Hardwood Floors
  • Richardís Sanitation
  • Sorensen & Sorensen Painting & Decorating
  • OFI Performance
  • Ace Auto Inc.
  • Windy Ridge Auto Repair & Fabrication

"As you can see there are three tiers listed with each class. Tier one is for when 300 or fewer fans are in the grandstands. Tier two is for 301-499 fans. Tier three is 500+ fans. While many nights we get 500+ fans, we are tiering the payouts for events such as weather having a direct impact on the show. We may never really need to worry about the lesser tiers in payouts but .... we want to decrease the odds of us bailing on a night do to 50/50 weather."

"Our fans expect to see top notch regional and national drivers throughout the season," mentioned Lingenfelter during prior discussions, "and one way to make sure that happens is by compensating those drivers with the best payout we can." Timm continued the topic, "Additionally to the payout we put together, we have some great sponsors who step up with additional money, which allows us to create an even better payout for every driver at the track. We hope that our drivers, team members and fans as well understand how much these sponsors help at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY, so we suggest they visit these sponsors and show their appreciation of their involvement."

The 2023 payout is sure to pique the interest of drivers in all weeekly divisions, enticing them to either make MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY one of their main weekly stops, or, at the very least, a destination for those special visits as their travels allow. Either way, the big winners will be the fans, who are guaranteed to see the best-of-the-best competing on "The Big 1/3-Mile" for top $$!

"Myself and my wife Paula have been co-owners of MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY along with my sister Tina and my brother-in-law Tom Lockner, for the past 14 years; and we all played an instrumental role, together, in laying the foundation for what's become the success story of MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY," explained Timm, "I want to thank them for the time and effort they've put into MTS for the last 14 years.

"I've been extremely partial to this location for more than 40 years, or 50 years," continued Timm, "I remember playing around in the sand back in 1972, '73, '74; So, I started looking for opportunities to keep it in tact and have it move forward beyond 2022. So, I feel extremely fortunate to be able to put together this new ownership group, that we're unveiling today."

Lingenfelter joined in the FB Live stream explaining his excitement for the opportunity and enthusiasm for a successful 2023 season and the extended future of MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY, "I think the biggest thing that this solidifies (for me and anyone visiting MTS), is that we're in this for the Long Haul."
