"Here is how it is paid out; first, if anyone of the drivers in the top three in points wins the race, they take the bonus $1,000 in addition to the $1,000 to win for a total of $2,000 to win on Saturday. Second, if none of the top three in points wins Saturdays race, then the $1,000 bonus fund is up for grabs and the top ten drivers that attended all five Coors Light Late Model Series races leading up to championship night will have a shot at it. The highest eligible finisher in the October 20th race will receive a $500 bonus, the second highest finisher will receive a $300 bonus, and the third highest finisher will receive a $200 bonus."
