On Saturday, the pit gate will be open all day before being closed and cleared at 3:30 pm. All gates will re-open at 4:00 pm. A driver autograph session is scheduled from 4:30 pm to 5:15 pm. A drivers meeting is set for 6:00 pm, with on-track action beginning at 6:30 pm.

Sunday’s event will once again see the pit gate remain open all day, before being cleared at 2:30 pm. The pit and general admission gates will re-open at 3:00 pm. A drivers meeting will take place at 5:00 pm with hot laps set for 5:30 pm.

The Pitts Homes USRA Modifieds will be the support class on Saturday with a $2,000-to-win feature. On Sunday, the O’Reilly Auto Parts Street Stocks will be in action, with the feature winner taking home $1,000.
