Thursday February 6th, the Modifieds will be racing in a 30 lap event for $5,000 to win. Friday night, February 7th, the Modifieds race for 40 laps with the winner taking $7,500.

Alongside the Modifieds, the STSS 602 Crate Sportsman will be racing for both $1,250 to win on both Thursday and Friday nights in a 25 lap event. In the final event the Crate Sportsman will be racing for $1,500 to win in a 30 lap event.
