After a rainout last Saturday night, track owner Kelvin Hampton wanted to reward the 95 entrants that waited patiently through a line a thunderstorms on Saturday night that eventually rained out the event. After several requests, Hampton has also added the Open-Wheel Modifieds to this Saturday night’s racing program to run for regular money and points.
With eight Divisions and the rescheduled Crew Chief’s Race at the end of the regular racing this Saturday night, Hampton has elected to Hot Lap Qualify the seven Weekly Divisions, and have them go directly to Feature Races.
Drivers that were entered in last Saturday night’s rainout will qualify first and start in front of any new competitors that enter this Saturday night’s racing program. The new drivers will qualify after last Saturday night’s entrants and line up for the Feature Race behind them by the time they qualified.
