Leading the charge will be current series point leader Ray Allen Kulhanek of Danbury, TX. With 16 of 22 scheduled events already in the books, Kulhanek has made his way to victory lane five times to amass a 104 point advantage in the series championship points race.

Louisiana racers Stephen Chevallier and Lane Whittington, along with Texas City, TX, shoe Greg Rilat, remain in title contention, with McDonald rounding out the current top five.

Other top Gulf South Region contenders include Richard Holt, Larry Hartwell, Greg Coleman, Darryl Wills, Chris Sweeney and Eric Payne, with 2003 O'Reilly ASCS National champion Travis Rilat of Forney, TX, expected to drop in on Saturday night's action as well.

Saturday's racing action is slated to get under way at 7:00 p.m. Gator Motorplex is located off I-45 Exit 98 (Shepherd Hill), then east, then 1.4 miles south on SR 75. For more information, call 936-588-6127.
