Defending SSS champion Donnie Wilson seeks his first win at Five Flags. The Oklahoma City driver is o-for-51 in Blizzard Series action. Last time out Wilson was second for the fifth time in a Blizzard race. Casey Roderick will look to bounce back from a seventh-place run as he seeks a third straight Blizzard title.
