Steel Late Models program, along with qualifying for IMCA Sunoco

Stock Cars and Hobby Stocks.

 

IMCA KSE Racing Products Sprint Cars wind up their Jackpot Junction

Champions for the Stocks.

 

Wednesday sees the final night of qualifying for the Stock Cars while

Modifieds from all across the nation converge at Boone for the

opportunity to start in the inside row in Saturday’s main event.

 

The front eight in the middle row of the Modified main will be

determined during the Thursday program, which also boasts Harris Auto
