Open Wheel drivers are chomping at the bit after an unfortunate rain out on the 9th of August and the field should grow with other competitors bringing their machines to compete at the historic oval. The Pro late model car count has been building each event of the 2014 season and look for some new faces as some drivers will be using this race as a warm up for the Alabama 200 “Fall Brawl” scheduled just 2 weeks later on September 6th.

The Night will also include the Open Sportsman, A Late Model/Super Stock division run on 8 inch tires with very few regulations and an open motor rule. The Uncle Bob’s Street Stocks return for the last points race of the year and are sure to put on a great show for the fans.
