2024 HTF Series Schedule: Increased Payouts, More Races, and $150,000 Total Points Fund

2024 HTF Series Schedule: Tour’s Sophomore Season to Feature Increased Payouts, More Races, and $150,000 Total Points Fund

After a successful first season that saw the series hold 18 points races at 12 tracks, the Hunt the Front Super Dirt Series is set to take a significant step forward for its second season in 2024 with an expanded schedule that will feature increased race payouts to go along with the tour’s previously announced $150,000-plus total points fund.

The 25-race tour will take series competitors to 14 different tracks across eight states in 2024 starting at Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga, Ala., in March and concluding with the 50th annual National 100 at East Alabama Motor Speedway in Phenix City, Ala., in November.

Along with paying $50,000 to the season’s points champion, the tour will feature significantly increased race payouts with all Saturday races paying at least $15,000 to the winner and a minimum of $1,000 to every feature starter. Five races will pay $20,000 to the winner and the season finale at East Alabama’s historic National 100 will pay $50,000 to win.

The $50,000 champion’s check is part of a significant points fund increase for the tour in year two with total points fund money jumping to $153,000 from just over $60,000 in 2023.

Second place in the season-long points chase will be worth $25,000 with $15,000 for third, $12,000 for fourth and $10,000 for fifth; positions 6-10 will pay $5,000, $4,000, $3,000, $2,000 and $1,000. The tour will also pay out a $16,000 midseason points fund again in 2024 with $5,000 going to the points leader at midseason. In addition, the tour’s Rookie of the Year program will be increased to pay five spots with $5,000 going to the top first-year driver.

Here’s a closer look at the series schedule.

Sweet Home Alabama

Along with hosting both the season opening weekend and the points finale, the state of Alabama will also host the most series events in 2024 with the tour making two trips each to both Talladega and East Alabama.

Talladega will open the season March 15-16 with the revived Bama Bash featuring a $5,000-to-win Friday program and a $15,000-to-win weekend finale. The tour will return to Talladega Oct.4-5 as part of the track’s festivities during the fall NASCAR weekend taking place at nearby Talladega Superspeedway. The annual Red Farmer Tribute weekend will feature a $5,000-to-win show Friday, Oct. 4 and a $15,000-to-win show Saturday, Oct. 5.

East Alabama Motor Speedway will once again play a major role in the HTF Series season with the track hosting a $15,000-to-win event on Aug. 17 in addition to the season-ending National 100 on Nov. 1-2. After featuring on the series as a non-points race in 2023, the National 100 will serve as the tour’s championship weekend in 2024 with the $50,000-to-win event offering full series points. Another change for the National 100 weekend will see the tour’s traditional Saturday-Sunday format shift to Friday-Saturday with prelims set for Friday night, Nov. 1 and the 100-lap finale taking place Saturday night, Nov. 2.

Expanding to New Areas

Five new tracks were added to the series schedule for 2024, taking the the tour for the first time to east Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Kentucky. Smoky Mountain Speedway in Maryville, Tenn., will be the first new track the series visits for a $15,000-to-win event on April 27.

Later in the year, the series returns to South Carolina to visit Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, S.C., for a June 21-22 doubleheader weekend during the Rock Gault Memorial. The event features a $5,000-to-win show Friday and a $20,000-to-win Saturday finale.

Finally, the tour will make its first visit to the Bluegrass State in August with a trip to Lake Cumberland Speedway in Burnside, Ky. The Harold Hardgrove Memorial that will feature a $5,000-to-win show Aug. 23 and a $15,000-to-win race Aug. 24.

Five Races Pay $20,000 to Win

Along with the big shows at Lancaster and Cherokee, the series will feature three other $20,000-to-win events for a total of five of the big-money races that feature a full payout of $65,000.

After hosting three series races including the points finale in 2023, Swainsboro Raceway in Swainsboro, Ga., is back on the schedule with a May 31-June 1 doubleheader weekend that will feature a $20,000-to-win Saturday night show.

The Independence Shootout at Senoia Raceway in Senoia, Ga., on July 6 is back on the series schedule for the second straight year and will increase to a $20,000-to-win purse. The event will also serve as the tour’s Mid-Season Championship Race with the tour crowning its Mid-Season Champion at the event.

The second half of the tour’s season will once again kick off at Duck River Raceway Park in Wheel, Tenn., with the Deep Fried 75 again paying $20,000 to the winner on Aug. 3. The event expands this year to include a $5,000-to-win weekend opener on Aug. 2.

Other Returning Favorites

Three other tracks will host HTF Series events in 2024, all of which were also on the tour last season. All-Tech Raceway in Lake City, Fla., serves as the lone Florida track on the series schedule with the series once again sanctioning the track’s Southbound Throwdown weekend April 12-13. The event features a $5,000-to-win opener and a $15,000-to-win weekend finale.

As the only Mississippi track on the tour’s initial schedule, Whynot Motorsports Park in Meridian, Miss., will again host the tour for a doubleheader weekend May 17-18 that will also feature a $5,000-to-win Friday race and a $15,000-to-win Saturday show.

Lavonia Speedway in Lavonia, Ga., also returns to the series schedule, hosting the tour for a Friday night event on Sept. 13. While the $10,000-to-win show is a standalone event for the HTF Series, it serves as a lead-in to a World of Outlaws Late Model Series doubleheader at nearby Senoia Raceway and Rome Speedway on Saturday and Sunday of that weekend.
