The 2015 Highbanks Hustle III will feature a Saturday night finale paying $7,500 to win, making it the highest paying wing outlaw micro sprint race east of the Mississippi River! The overall purse has been increased close to $7,000 from last years event that was won by Jake Hagopian of California. This also means purse money will be increased through the field as well!

The 3rd edition of the Highbanks Hustle will take place June 18th-20th here at Southern Illinois Raceway. It will all start on Thursday the 18th with an open practice for all drivers. Pit admission will be $10 and grand stands will be free this night. Friday the 19th will feature a preliminary night paying $500 to win and $50 to start. The top 6 from Friday will lock into the dash and the front 3 rows for Saturday night's A-Main. Both Friday and Saturday Night's racing will cost $10 for general admission and $30 for a pit pass.

Additionally, there will NOT be an increase in driver entry fees! The Hustle will have a pre-entry of $100 and a post entry for $125. SIR wanted to give back to the awesome racers and fans from all over the country that have supported us the last couple years with this event. By paying more to the racers and not charging any additional fees for general admission or entry we hope to accomplished this.

The full purse will be announced very soon, so be on the lookout for that announcement! Anyone interested in event sponsorship should contact Jake Palmisano or Kurt Hermann. Who's ready for the Hustle?
