Over $215,000 is up for grabs between the six Dash for Cash 50-lap sprints and the Sunoco 100 on World Series Saturday for the Outlaw Open Modifieds, all beginning on Memorial Day! Ronnie Williams, Jon McKennedy and Matt Swanson lead the Outlaw Open Modifieds into their season opener, with youngsters Tyler Berry, Anthony Bello and RJ Marcotte among those looking for the $5,000 payday on Monday!

In the Thompson track championship chase, a season ahead is ready to restart after nearly seven weeks of preparation following the Icebreaker. Jon Puleo is standing tall among the Sunoco 604 Modifieds, winning the debut events for the division on Icebreaker Sunday. The parity among the 604 Modifieds put on some great side-by-side racing with word on the street screaming expanded fields on Memorial Day Monday!

Ryan Morgan leads the Late Models with defending champion Nick Johnson and Kulwicki Driver Development Program (KDDP) finalist Derek Gluchacki close behind in a talented and competitive field for the 2024 season. The AZ Roofing SK Lights are currently led by Tyler Chapman, as the Ellington-native looks to best his third-place tally in last season’s standings. Youngster Nick Hovey and longtime pilot John O’Sullivan are both tied for second just nine-points back and both will look to best Chapman on Monday.

After a hard charging, rain-dodging win on Icebreaker weekend Al Stone III leads the fan-favorite Street Stock division standings followed close behind by 2023 championship runner-up Ryan Waterman and Aaron Plemons. Waterman, Plemons, Corey Fanning and ‘Leadfoot’ Larry Barnett are certain to dive in for the Memorial Day win and hunt for the Eden Rafferty bonuses!

Defending Mini Stock champion Jared Roy dominated the Icebreaker win after a heartbreaker for 2022 champ Kevin Moore saw him lose considerable power in the closing laps. Moore is among those looking to bounce back, along with fellow hard-luck candidate Dave Trudeau, and find Thompson victory lane once again!
