"IMCA Modifieds and Late Models are very popular, and the race fans deserve two great nights of racing. This is a wonderful way to end the season"
More than 100 IMCA Modifieds are expected to compete for the $3,000 winner’s purse in Saturday’s "A" feature. IMCA Late Model drivers will be competing for $1,500 winner’s purse in their main event.
