There will be many new drivers competing in this event who have never raced at this track but the long straightaways will be similar to the previous event at Greenville-Pickens Speedway. An outstanding group of drivers are competing for rookie-of-the-year Honors with Jason Hogan leading after two races with Dusty Williams and Jarod Robie tied for second Followed by Joe Aramendia, Johnny Brazier and Tommy Owens.
