This year Anderson will focus on the Pro Late Model race.   Brad May won both the Pro Late Model and Super Late Model track titles at New Smyrna Speedway in 2016.  Former two-time Red Eye 100 winners Stephen Nasse and David Rogers are expected to be in the field.  Bubba Pollard is also expected, as he won the race in 2015 and finished second in 2016.
