While the drivers participating in ‘The Hunt’ will be grappling for their piece of more than $60,000 in year-end points fund cash and thousands in contingency awards, all entrants will lock horns on a nightly basis for at least $3,000 to win ($5,000 to win with the Big Dog Buy-In) and nearly $400,000 in prize money up for grabs during the 17-race campaign.

More than $40,000 in points fund money has already been doled out to top points-getters in the three regional campaigns, with another $50,000 or more in points fund cash earmarked for drivers in the Hunt for the USMTS Casey's Cup. The champion will pocket at least $15,000, and any driver competing in all events during ‘The Hunt’ will earn a minimum of $1,000 at season’s end.
