“Honestly our season ended September 24th and it’s taken this long to determine award winners. That’s how many guys were up for each and deservingly so. At the end of the day we had to narrow it down and we’ve done that. I think everyone will be pleased with how we close out our racing season,” said KOD Promoter Rob Hazer.

Last year the King Of Dirt Racing Series packed the banquet hall at the Winner’s Circle Restaurant and expects to do so again this year. With space being limited, everyone attending is asked to be prompt with ticket sales.
