Total Prize Money for Ally 400 at Nashville Superspeedway
After a week off, the NASCAR Cup Series heads to Nashville Superspeedway for the Ally 400 on June 26, 2022. The race will air on NBC, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio at 5:00 p.m. ET.
All Cup Series drivers will be tasked with navigating the 1.33-mile D-shaped concrete oval, which is the longest concrete surface track on the 2022 calendar and will compete for the prize money. .
Journalist Bob Pockrass shared the scholarship amount on Twitter. This weekend’s Cup Series and Xfinity Series purse for the Ally 400 at Nashville Superspeedway is $8,065,125 and $1,319,713, respectively. The riders can be counted on to try everything they can to bring home this prize.
For decades, the stock car racing series has included “The Purse” in the scores for every race on the calendar. Drivers negotiated contracts with team owners for a salary as well as a percentage of the weekly purse. The scholarships varied according to the size and importance of the breed; large leads had large payouts, while smaller leads had lower payouts.
Great performances from Next Gen Car in the NASCAR Cup Series
In the 2022 Cup Series, Next Gen cars offer fierce competition. Since the introduction of the new generation of cars in the Cup Series, this season has been exciting.
The series saw a total of 12 different winners in the first 16 races of the 2022 season, matching the 2000 and 2012 seasons for the most winners in the modern era, behind only the 2003 season which had 13 different winners.
In addition to the 12 different race winners this season, four are first-time Cup Series winners. Since the introduction of the Next Gen Car, it is difficult to predict which driver will claim victory at a race weekend.
Last season, Nashville Superspeedway hosted the track’s first Cup Series race, which was won by Hendrick Motorsports driver Kyle Larson. The Cup Series champion won by a margin of 4.335 seconds over Ross Chastain, who finished second. Only time will tell if he can defend his championship in Nashville this weekend.
