Bryant and crew will make the trek from Ionia, Michigan in hopes of qualifying for both the Ultimate Super Late Model Series event as well as the Modified feature.
Race fans will be taken back in time when the Bell & Bell Vintage Modified Series takes to the track for their two 15 lap events. These Modified machines will not be there for an exhibition, these drivers will be standing on the gas competing for position and that checkered flag. The Bell & Bell Vintage Series is made up of veteran dirt racers from the Carolina’s driving machines that will take us back to an era where it all began.
The 6th Annual Race for the Kid’s will once again conclude with the Night of Destruction.
