JEG’S Automotive, Inc. announced today an exciting new enhancement to the annual JEG’S Allstars Race. JEG’S will offer a “JEG’S Double-Up Bonus” to all of the 64 competitors who compete in the prestigious special event.
The JEG’S Allstars Race is contested annually at the fall event at Route 66 Raceway. The prestigious race-within-a-race program will celebrate 20-years of putting the best racers from coast-to-coast head-to-head in 2004.
The racers in the eight NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series categories from each of NHRA’s seven geographic regions compete for team and individual honors and a share of the $100,000 purse in the JEG’S Allstars Race. The winning division splits $20,000 for winning the team title. The winners in the Top Alcohol Dragster and Top Alcohol Funny Car categories earn $7,000 each, while the winners in Competition Eliminator and Super Stock pocket $6,000 each. Super Comp, Super Gas and Super Street winners take home $4,500. Runners-up in all categories receive $2,000.
If a competitor wins the JEG’S Allstars Race in their respective class(es) they will become eligible to earn the “JEG’S Double-Up Bonus.” To earn the bonus competitors must win the JEG’S Allstars Race and the (scheduled) NHRA national event the same weekend in the same class(es).

“We are excited to make this enhancement to the JEG’S Allstars Race and bring some more fun and excitement to the program,” said Scott Woodruff Director of Motorsports Marketing and PR for JEG’S.
“Our involvement in this program has been well received by the competitors each year and the NHRA support has been great. The NHRA competition committee recently announced dropping the CIC Index penalty for the JEG’S Allstars Race beginning at the 2004 JEG’S Allstars Race for Competition Eliminator. Adding that with the new JEG’S Double-Up Bonus program elevates the most prestigious event to a new level. We wish everyone the best of luck during the 2004 season!”
