“With over 150 entries and not less than 10 starters in each class, racing will be the ultimate adrenaline rush for any oval fan,” said Abie Sada, marketing manager and commentator at the Rock Raceway.

“This event will serve as the fourth round of the National Hotrod Championships.

“Practice and qualifying sessions will take place from 5pm.”
