One of the biggest field of cars is expected for Thursday with a total purse of $32,300 on the line for the 30 cars that will qualify for the 150-lap feature, we already have confirmation of some stars of the Super DIRTcar Series as Brett Hearn and Tim Fuller will be in attendance, plus our weekly talented field and several drivers hauling from Ontario and Quebec.
Also sharing the schedule will be the Assist2Sell Sportsman with a 50-lap feature paying $1,000 to win and over $5,500 in total purse. This event will be a great prelude for the final Race for the Cure Sportsman feature scheduled for this Sunday. Again, several invaders are expected to compete this Thursday.
