In addition the Interstate Batteries Hornets will be on the road course. The racing begins at 6pm with spectators gates opening at 4pm.
A great battle is underway for the 2013 Super Late Model track championship. Six time division champion Tom Moriarity has a 16-point edge over Daniel Moore. Both have one win this season. Only 14-points back of Moore is Doni Wanat who has a slim 2-point advantage over 15-year old Garrett Archer. Scheduled for 75-laps on the 3/8-mile this Saturday will be a pivotal race as the season enters the second half.
Also a great fight for the 2013 title is waging in the Street Stock division. Current leader Roger Drake has a 10-point lead over Jason McQuinn. McQuinn is 9-points up on Darrel Lutovsky who enjoys a 15-point margin on Joe Kneeland and Steve Ptacek who are tied for the 4th position in the title chase. Of the five only Joe Kneeland has a NASCAR Street Stock championship. Kneeland won the 2011 title.
In the Mini-Stock division the points for the title are not as close with defending division champion Jon Roberts holding a 63-point lead. In second in points is 18-year old Devin Kessler with a 4-point edge on Travis Woodward.
Hornet division driver Cyril Greenawalt has the points lead by 14-points. Scott Hunt holds onto second position and is the leading candidate for Rookie of the Year in the division. 36-points back of Hunt is former champion Jaime Corbett. With a lot of races left in 2013 the mid season is always an important race.
