Also on the card will be the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks, with $500 being paid to the winner of that event. The Gary Glass Automotive and Washington House RUSH Sprint Cars will be in competition for their final appearance of 2021 at Tri-City. The RUSH Sprints will have a $800 payday awaiting the winner.
