Notes: Kyle Busch returns to the Dixieland 250 after winning a version of the race in 2007.  Busch passed Dan Fredrickson for the win in the final 25 laps that year in a race that was 150 laps. Fredrickson has never won this race.  Speaking of big names who have never won this race, ARCA Midwest Touring series point leader Ty Majeski has also never tasted victory in this show. Recently, Majeski won the White race as part of the track’s Red, White and Blue Series.  Mark Martin will be on hand signing autographs as he won the first race back in 1981 and followed that up with a win in 1984.  A year ago, Dennis Prunty became the seventh different driver to win both the Dixieland event and the Slinger Nationals. Steve Carlson has won this race a record seven times, but is no expected to be in the field.  Defending Winchester 400 winner Travis Braden will be in the field looking to gain another big win the resume.
