The newly entitled “Big Buck 50 Presented by Whitetail Trophy Hunt” will also see a significant jump in purse money as the event will be $4,000 to win in 2015, up from $2,500 in 2014.

“We are really excited to welcome Don and Craig Danuser and the entire group at Whitetail Trophy Hunt as partners to this great event. I have known Craig for many years and there are two things he is passionate about and that is Stock Car Racing and Whitetail Deer Hunting so it was a great way for us to spread his message and help both organizations grow their events in a positive manner.” stated Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Dan Robinson

Along with the addition of Whitetail Trophy Hunt and the increase in the purse money, the Big Buck 50 will also see some minor rule changes including the allowance of Bert/Brinn Transmissions and the addition of (2) Lucas Oil Speedway points provisionals for 2015.

The Whitetail Trophy Hunt builds a camaraderie that brings hunters back again and again. Almost $4 million in cash and prizes has been awarded over the years to many fortunate whitetail hunters.
