Notes: Tuesday’s race will be a 250-lap race with caution laps counting until the final 10 laps of the race.  Controlled pit stops will be used, meaning that drivers who visit pit road during a caution period will not lose positions in regards to other cars that pitted during that same caution period. The top 16 qualifiers in time trials will be locked into the main event.  The remainder of cars will be split into one or two last chance races, with a total of 10 additional cars transferring to feature.  A dice roll plus seven will determine an invert between eight and 13.

 

Dalton Zehr enters Tuesday’s race red hot after scoring wins at Norway Speedway and Dells Raceway Park this past weekend.  Jeff Van Oudenhoven carries momentum into the event as the most recent winner at the Kaukauna oval.  Casey Johnson, the only repeat winner at WIR this year, leads the battle for the track championship. Speaking of two-time winners, two-time ARCA Midwest Tour winner this season Austin Nason will be looking to score one of the biggest wins of his career in the Dixieland 250.  Ty Majeski, who recently scored a huge win in the Slinger Nationals, will be searching for his first Dixieland 250 victory.
