Notes: 2015 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion Kyle Busch will be pulling double duty, racing in both the Outlaw SLM and Template SLM features. Busch won the ARCA/CRA Super Series feature in 2014. Tyler Roahrig enters the Kalamazoo Klash looking to finally capture his first win in the big race. Roahrig came up just short one year ago after watching Terry Senneker, Jr. go by him with less than 15 laps remaining.  Speaking of Senneker, he’ll be looking for his record sixth Klash victory. 2015 race winner Jeff Ganus will also be in the field searching for his second Klash victory. Defending CRA race winner Brian Campbell leads a strong field of Template Super Late Models including some surprise entries like Quebec’s Raphael Lessard and New York’s Eddie Fatscher. Rookie driver Josh Brock leads the ARCA/CRA Super Series point standings heading into Kalamazooo.  Fresh off his Gold Cup win last week, Harold Fair Jr. returns to the Klash for only the second time in his career. The three-time Gold Cup Champion would love to pick up a win in west Michigan.  The event has never had a repeat winner.  The Bozell family of Andy & Phil Bozell has five Klash wins and a Template Klash win.
