$50,000 in Purse Money for the General Tire Trophylite Race Series for 2011

Jan. 03, 2011 By Press Release
CHANDLER, AZ - Trophylite teams set to compete for the richest class in all of Off-Road racing in 2011.  The General Tire Trophylite Race Series is proud to announce the 2011 purse and payback to be $50,000.  In what teams have come to expect from the Trophylite series once again the team at Trophylite put together another huge pool of cash to race for in the new year.  This starting another year with the the richest purse fund of all classes in off-road racing for the 3rd year in a row.  Even with the rough economy that we are all facing the team worked hard to bring the kind of prize money that Trophylite teams and racers are looking for.

With 5 races in 2011 to compete for cash the Trophylite program shows the best bang for the buck in all of off-road racing.  The Trophylite concept is designed to keep the cost of competitive racing as low as possible with defined rules to keep the racing on the dirt and not in the wallet.  With $50,000 in prize money up for grabs look for the past Trophylite champions to bring the "A" game to the first race of the season to set the stage.

"We are excited to be able to bring this level of commitment to the off-road racing community.  I think that being able to put this kind of prize money together in these economic times should shout to everyone that Trophylite is the place to race.  With our existing Trophylite R-4 program in the 3rd full year now and our new platform coming this season with the new V-8 powered Trophylite R-8 we will see big stuff in 2011 from the Trophylite headquarters.  We will also see the first Ford powered Trophylite truck debut at the Best in the Desert Parker 425 coming up.  This marks the first race that brings back the good old Ford and Chevy race battles we have all loved over the years"  Greg Foutz president of Trophylite said in comment.
