MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY PREPARES TO HAND OUT THE CASH!!
BAEHMAN LAW B-MOD POINT FUND AWARDS ANNOUNCED

MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY is excited to announce the recipients of The 2011 BAEHMAN LAW B-MOD POINT FUND!! As announced on March 29th, 2011, USRA B-Mod racer - and class fan Jack Baehman decided to fund an unbelievably generous point fund for the USRA B-Mod class for the 2011 season.

Thus was born the The 2011 BAEHMAN LAW B-MOD POINT FUND.

The point fund pays a whopping $3000.00 to the "Point Fund Champion" and pays back through the top 20 competitors who met the point fund criteria. There is also a $250.00 bonus paid to the competitor who raced every point fun show and ended up with the lowest point total.*

The 2011 BAEHMAN LAW B-MOD POINT FUND awards checks will be presented during the 2011 MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY CHAMPIONSHIP AWARDS BANQUET scheduled for Saturday December 17th at the Riverport Inn & Suites located in Winona, MN.

"I can't even begin to explain just how fortunate the USRA B-Mod racers are to have a supporter such as Baehman Law at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY," said speedway owner Bob Timm, "and any time we can find a way such as this to reward our regular drivers by putting a little extra cash in their pockets, is a win-win situation for all involved. We all owe a HUGE Thank You to Jack Baehman and Baehman Law!"

Results of The 2011 BAEHMAN LAW B-MOD POINT FUND are as follows:
