The Late Model Trucks will hold the final race of their season, a 35-lap championship, as part of the eight-race main-event card at the track.
Also racing tonight will be the 206 Outlaw Karts and Animal Outlaw/125 Karts, Bandoleros, Legends and Vintage Midgets and Sprints.

Veteran driver Mark Allison, who is coming off a victory in the last race in Rosamond, California, enters tonight’s Late Model Truck race as the favorite to clinch the season points championship.
Allison leads the field with 180 points, followed by Gary Wyatt with 172 points and Michael Riefler with 169.
The vintages are returning for the first time this season. Marty White has won the last two main events, in March and January of this year.
