It’s a schedule that will give our fans a tremendous amount of entertainment and variety every weekend, our corporate partners the exposure they deserve, and our drivers the opportunity to compete against tough competition every night plus have the flexibility to race at other tracks in the region when not scheduled with us.

Also on the docket Friday night will be Late Models and B-Mods. Saturday night, the MSTS, Nebraska 360s and RaceSavers will compete again, along with the Tailgators Late Model Street Stock Series (LMSS), which is the equivalent of our Pro Stocks, Hobby Stocks and B-Buzzer front wheel drives.
