The speed and excitement of local short track racing returns to the Kinross Speedpark this weekend.
Sunday, August 14th the 1/4 mile facility hosts it’s fourth event of the 2016 season; the “Founding Father” full show featuring Precision Forestry Modifieds, ABC Stock Cars and Four Cylinders.
The ABC B-Division will also host double features, making up their weather-shortened race from last event.
Meanwhile, once again our drivers will be not only competing for regular purse money, but also prizes of nearly $100,000 thanks to Contingency Connection Racer Rewards and nearly 100 National Performance Manufacturers.
Time trials begin at 1:30 p.m. with racing action set for 3 p.m.
Off the track, the youngest fans (12 & Under) will be able to take part in a “Nickel Toss” at intermission.
Heading into Night #4, it’s an intense battle for the top spot of the Precision Forestry Modified Division.
Defending track champion Tim Aho (#27, Sault Ste. Marie MI) and Jay Palumbo (#90, Goualis ON) sit tied for the points lead while Buddy Gray IV (#24JR, Petoskey MI) trails the duo by a mere point.
