Winchester Speedway along with Duck River Speedway have scheduled this 10 event series in 2003 with five shows each at Duck River Speedway and Winchester Speedway. The Points fund goal is $12,000 (the series will start with a $5,000 points fund and will be increased for every race entry during all ten events with the goal being $12,000 minimum based on an average car count of 25 racers per show / $20 of every $60 entry fee on $1,500 to win shows and $40 of every $100 Entry fee for the $3,000 to win shows) in 2003. The 2003 Big 10 Super Series point fund will be split among the Top 15 racers in the final points standings. The 2003 Big 10 series will consist of six $1,500 to win shows (3 at each track) and there will also be four $3,000 to win and $250 to start (two at each speedway) Big 10 shows!
The 2003 Big 10 Steel Head Super series will utilize the same rules as the 2002 Big 6 series with two exceptions. A $250 Protest on MSD ignition boxes has been added and any driver in the Top 5 in points may protest (last season only Top 5 race finishers could protest the race winner). Basic rules are 362 Steel Head, flat top piston engines with any intake manifold. Rear tires must durometer 60 or greater when cold.
