Check back here for updates throughout the afternoon and evening on our biggest day of the year. I will be getting to the track just after the gates open. I did see that the 10 car will not be back today after Motor problems last night, we may gain a couple cars today but we will see.

Also don't forget to pick up a hoodie for 25 bucks or to get in the qualifying game for Just Two Bucks a spot, all this helps Harold and our site out.

The 77 who had issues night is back , the g4 and 9 both repaired and ready to go. We gained the 32 Sutton and the 50s looking Thundercar number 15 of Billy Bartholomew...and lost the 10 of Armour , so as of now we have 45 cars I believe

29 Corbin III may of just blew up but hopefully just a hose coming off or something simple...the 70 Donnie Sloan and 53 Johnny Byrd have also showed up making 47 cars in the pits...not much longer left as cleanup continues and have not see the 00 of Turner make an attempt yet...neither has 14 Matt Smith but I don't think there was any plan to actually race but who knows , car is here and practiced more earlier...was even rumor of someone (Dk who) jumping in it. Also no attempts yet for the 3 Schaeffer, 21x Spurgeon, 78 Owen, 15 Bartholomew
