BELLE ROSE, La. --

Through a point battle during the South Central Division's 2012 season and a year-end Wild Card drawing the field has been set for the inaugural NHRA Division 4 Moser Sportsman Shootout to be held Saturday, March 23 at the upcoming JEGS NHRA Cajun SPORTSnationals. The event presents a unique match of NHRA sportsman racers in Super Stock, Stock, Super Comp, Super Gas, Super Street, Top Dragster and Top Sportsman in head-to-head competition to see - who really is the best of the best.

Slate Cummings, the dual 2012 Division 4 Champion in Super Stock and Stock eliminators and Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series Super Gas National Champion Jeff Lopez headline an allstar group of racers that have qualified for the special race. Cummings has qualified in both Super Stock and Stock for the Moser Sportsman Shootout and will face his father Larry in the Super Stock pairing.

The Moser Sportsman Shootout is unique in that racers from the seven entirely different class structures will be racing each other. Eliminations will be in a dial-in/breakout handicap format on an eighth-mile. The Christmas tree will be a full countdown mode with the Cross Talk feature not in use.

A $15,000 cash purse is up for grabs with $5,000 to the winner, $2,000 to the runner-up, $1,000 to each of the semi-finalists, $700 to the quarter-finalists and $400 to each of the remaining event qualifiers.

To be eligible for full posted purse qualifier must run the NHRA Moser Engineering Sportsman program decal and Moser Engineering axles and display the Moser Engineering product decal during the Sportsman Shootout Event. Qualifiers not utilizing Moser Engineering axles and displaying the Moser Engineering Sportsman Shootout program decal and Moser Engineering product decal for the duration of the Moser Sportsman Shootout event will receive 50% of the posted awards. Drivers are not required to have Moser Engineering axles to qualify or participate in the program.

Product use and proper decal display from tech inspection to completion of the Shootout by the competitor is required for full payout. The NHRA Certification Team will be responsible for product and decal verification at the Moser Sportsman Shootout.

A similar program was contested last season in the North Central Division with Daryl Bureski, a stock eliminator racer drawn as one of the two Wild Card entries, defeating James Monroe's Top Dragster entry in an exciting final.
