The Baumann Auto Group has upped the ante.

Each week at Fremont Speedway if the driver scheduled to start on the pole of the feature accepts the Baumann Auto Group Big Bucks Bump challenge – to go to the tail of the starting grid – and come through to get the win there will be a $5,000 bonus in addition to the normal payout.

That’s for each of the three divisions – the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprints; Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints; and the AAA Ohio Auto Club Dirt Trucks.

And, if the pole-sitter turns down the Baumann Auto Group Big Bucks Bump, the outside front row starter will be given the chance.

To sweeten the challenge even more, if the pole-sitter (or the outside front row starter if the pole-sitter turns down the challenge) accepts but can’t quite get the win, the driver’s finishing position money will be doubled.

According to Fremont Speedway Promoter Rich Farmer the Baumann Auto Group Big Bucks Bump will be in effect every week, including UNOH All Star events, through the first weekend in July.

“The Baumann Auto Group really stepped up to help create some additional excitement at Fremont Speedway and I can’t be more thankful,” said Farmer. “This will be a whole lot of fun for the race teams and especially the fans.”

“If you think it can’t be done, last year Greg Wilson started 18th and got the win so it’s not out of the realm of possibilities,” added Farmer.

The Baumann Auto Group Big Bucks Bump went into effect beginning with racing on Roots Poultry Night last Saturday night.
