River, Wisc. - The 50th
Anniversary of the Amsoil World Championship Snowmobile Derby is welcoming back
an exciting sponsor for the World Championship and they are bringing a lot of "dough"
to the party.
"We couldn't be happier right now and are extremely excited
to welcome Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches as an official product sponsor of
the Amsoil World Championship," Derby Track spokesman Todd Achterberg said.
Jimmy John's has really stepped up this year by putting a
total of $60,000 cash into the Amsoil World Championship 30 lap finale. The world
champion will take home $50,000 from Jimmy John's, along with another $10,000
from the Amsoil Derby Track.
Jimmy John's is also putting up another $10,000 cash for the
"Jimmy John's Freaky Fast Challenge," which will be split up among the top four
drivers in the championship race at the mandatory pit stop caution. The leader
at lap ten will pocket a cool $5,000, second $3,000, while third and fourth
will each get $1,000.
The big payday at the Amsoil World Championship will
continue to be spread out across the top 12 finishers when the final checkered
flag falls and the ice dust settles on Sunday, Jan. 20, 2013. There is
additional $11,600 cash being paid out by the Amsoil Derby Track.
The total payout for the 30 lap Championship Race at this
year's Amsoil Eagle River Championship Snowmobile Derby will be $81,600 cash,
making this the richest payout in the history of modern day snowmobile racing.
