Why can't the late models have twin races to complete our original 10 race season?

602 modifieds on the 15th?

no make up races

So Bandos will get 8 races instead of original 10?

Please separate the Late Models and Legends by at least one class. It will make our night a lot easier.

Looks like the 86 bomber car has more time to fix it. I'm coming for you.

The demolition derby was last night.

Demolition derby here we come!!!

So everything on the yellow flyer is accurate start times, or is all that moved an hour sooner?

The enduro race was soooo awesome. Good show!!

Any idea how long the race will go tonight? Should we expect until roughly 11pm as usual or done earlier due to starting earlier?

Good luck Kevin Pierce!! #wheelman

Go #51!!!!
