Race teams along the East Coast continue to show interest in the 2017 event with many racers indicating returning after last year’s popular and successful outcome.
The inaugural race and its wild finish received recognition by the viewers of racing website Speed 51, when they chose the battle between Derek Griffith and Dalton Sergeant in the closing laps and local favorite Tom Scully Jr. grabbing the win and big paycheck. The crowd-pleasing finish was runner-up in an off-season poll.
