Additional payout extends through 50th place, with second through 30th receiving a $250 cash bonus and 31st through 50th receiving $125.
"We're fortunate to have such a great partner in Evinrude," said TXTT Tournament Director Mike Hastings. "They build an incredible product, offer a robust contingency program for Texas Team Trail anglers and have been a part of our organization from the beginning. We're proud to build on our partnership in 2015 and beyond."
