Additional payout extends through 50th place, with second through 30th receiving a $250 cash bonus and 31st through 50th receiving $125.

"Evinrude has been an exceptional partner for us over the years," said TXTT Tournament Director Mike Hastings. "They've been a part of our organization from the beginning and the contingency program has played a major role in helping us offer the biggest team payouts in the state. We're proud of our partnership and excited to have their support again in 2016."
