Notes: The winner’s check for this year’s Kalamazoo Klash has doubled from $5,000 to $10,000, making it one of the richest Outlaw Super Late Model races in the country. Tyler Roahrig shook the monkey off his back by winning the Klash one year ago, and he’ll now look to make it two in a row this time around. Tyler’s father JR Roahrig enters the Klash with momentum after winning the $10,000 Summer Sizzler at New Paris Speedway (IN). After a year away from Kalamazoo Klash victory lane, Terry Senneker, Jr. will be searching for his record sixth win in the race. Four-time Klash winner Andy Bozell is entered and will be looking to tie Senneker with five wins in the prestigious race. Drivers scheduled to pull double-duty in the Outlaw Super Late Models and ARCA/CRA Super Series include Harold Fair, Jr., Phil Bozell and Steve Dorer. Tuesday’s ARCA/CRA Super Series will kick off the “Chase” for the 2018 championship. Josh Brock, Austin Kunert, Hunter Jack, Logan Runyon, Greg Van Alst and Jon Beach are the six drivers locked into the four-race championship battle.
