Mid-year Update - CenDiv Series Cash!

Wondering who has been getting the cash flowing out of the CenDiv Series? Here's an update!

As a reminder, as part of the 2015 CenDiv Divisional Championship presented by TRO Manufacturing and C & P Installations each race features a random draw to award up to $250 to participants (in calendar year 2015). One driver's name will be drawn to receive $100 and three workers' names will be drawn to receive $50. If the driver is not present at the drawing at the end-of-day celebration, an additional worker's name will be drawn and there will not be a driver award.

So here is the summary of the payouts so far for the 2015 season:
Event Winners Total Cash
