In addition to the racing action, all race fans in attendance will have the opportunity to meet their favorite drivers. During intermission the track will bring all of the race cars on the fronstretch and allow the fans to go out on the track for a meet and greet session with the drivers. This is an excellent opportunity for race fans who do not usually purchase pit passes to talk to the drivers they watch compete week in and week out.
Friday’s races will also be the final points race of the 2012 season. Eddie Carrier Jr. (Late Model), Jeremy Rayburn (Jordan Heating & Cooling UMP Modified), and Eric Dennison (GCP Engines Sport Mod) have already clinched the track championship in their respective divisions, but the Street Stock track championship battle is still wide open.
