Tickets will be available at the gate on race day (cash only). Grandstand gates open at 12:00 noon with qualifying for all six Weekly Racing Series divisions slated to get underway at 2:00 PM.
While the checkered flag is the immediate goal, Sunday is the first opportunity for drivers on the CARSTAR Weekly Racing Series to gain valuable championship points.

The Weekly Racing Series will return to its usual 7:00 PM time slot on Friday nights starting on June 2nd and will run every Friday night following for the remainder of the season.
