Defending champion Craig VonDohren will be looking to add to his impressive resume of track championships, eight so far, when the T.P.Trailers NASCAR 358 Modifieds take to the track tonight. Mike Gular and Jeff Strunk, a 10-time track champion, will be looking to keep VonDohren from winning that title and taking it themselves. In the BRC Late Models Chuck Schutz will be looking to hold off a challenge from Wayne Pfeil to win his eighth title. And in the Sportsman division the title is ups for grabs by leader Jordan Henn, Mike Lisowski, Craig Whitmoyer, Brian Hirthler, and Ryan Lilick. All five Sportsman racers are shooting for a first championship.
