Provisional starters each night are ineligible to receive feature points toward the passing master total.

Additionally, another $100 each night will go to the Hard Charger, which is the driver who advances the most positions from their starting spot during the feature event. The hard charger awards at Terre Haute, Lincoln Park and Bloomington will come courtesy of B & W Auto Mart of Bloomington, Indiana.
The ProSource Hard Work Award will present $100 each night to the slowest qualifier who transfers to the feature event.
Fast Qualifying time each night will be sponsored by Fatheadz Eyewear, who’ll honor the driver clocking in the fastest in time trials with a $100 bonus. Simpson Race Products, Competition Suspension Inc., Indy Metal Finishing and Indy Race Parts proudly sponsor each of the four heat races while Elliott’s Custom Trailers & Carts is the title sponsor of the semi-feature.
The GSP Driving Performance of the Night rewards a driver for an exceptional performance at each event throughout the USAC National season and will carry the same $100 prize for all seven nights of Indiana Sprint Week.
While the top-six finishers of the semi-feature will transfer to the feature event, drivers finishing 7th through 12th place in the semi will walk away with a bit more incentive in their pockets - $200 apiece. All other non-transfers will receive $150.
Additionally, each feature event throughout NOS Energy Drink Indiana Sprint Week will now pay $6,000-to-win and $600 to start for a total of $26,300 in nightly feature payouts throughout the 34th annual edition of the series which features seven events during a nine-night span between July 23-31.
The top-eight in the final standings of Indiana Sprint Week will be “in the money” with a new record of $10,000 going to the series champion, plus $4,000 for 2nd, $2,000 for 3rd, $1,250 for 4th, $1,000 for 5th, $750 for 6th, $600 for 7th and $400 for 8th.
KSE Racing Products supports the Hard Charger and Wilwood Brakes will reward the 13th place finisher each night. Saldana Racing Products is the sponsor of the first non-transfer and the “sweep,” if a driver can set fast time in qualifying, win their heat race, then capture the victory in the feature event all in one night.
