Modified drivers will be battling it out for the top prize of $1,200. Stock cars and sports mods each will race for a $1,000 payday while hobby stocks and outlaw hobby stocks will each have a $600 grand prize. The four-cylinder sport compacts will also be in action. The top six finishers on Friday night will be automatically qualified for the main event Saturday.
