Along with the 100-lap Modified, 50-lap Sportsman and 35-lap Pro-Stocks races will also be on the card.
Hot laps are scheduled to start at 4 pm, with time trials and heat racing to start at approximately 4:30 pm. The pit gates will open at noon with a cost of $45, and the general admission will open at 1:30 pm with a cost of $35 for adults, $18 for seniors, and $5 for kids 16 years old and under.
