Chris Blackwell broke through in the last meeting, ending Jeff Prieur’s two-race win streak to start the season after a pair of second place finishes. Jose Guevara has finished in the top four of all three races.
The Bandoleros division will hold two 15-lap races. Daegen Campbell and Owen Romzek have split the two main event races earlier this month. Skyler Meisenbach finished third each.
