The third annual Firecracker 100 Kick-It Cup will be contested on Friday afternoon (June 26) of the huge World of Outlaws Late Model Series weekend, pitting two teams comprised of WoO LMS, regional and Lernerville driving stars against each other in a kick-ball game designed to raise awareness and money for programs and research devoted to childhood cancer.

The Firecracker 100 Kick-It Cup will be played at 1 p.m. on Friday, June 26, on the football field in the Lernerville Speedway camping area. It will see more than a dozen late model drivers test the strength of their kicking legs. The group will include Gregg Satterlee, Shane Clanton, Rick Eckert, Tim McCreadie, Morgan Bagley, Boom Briggs, Eric Wells and several others.
