5:31

SK Modifeds have ended practice for the day.  There are a few more divisions that have some breif track time up until 6pm that we will dive more into tomorrow.  We want to thank you for following along today as we know many people wanted to see who was the fastest guy in town, but we'll cover that tomorrow when we go live with Trackside Now.

 

5:28

There are no practice times today.  From our view Ryan Preece looked good as did Woody Pitkat who won the SK race here last year.  We are sure there will be more to battle with tomorrow.

 

5:20

SK Modifeds are now on the track.

5:00

We have one hour left to go in this optional practice day.

 

4:56

We checked in with some of the Tour Modifed teams to see how they are doing here today:

Ryan Preece - excited for Saturday, car is good so far.

Burt Myers - tested back up car,  just trying to learn some things for the rest of the weekend, track is slowly rubbing up, should be all good by Saturday, also better that there is no water seeping up this year like there was last year.

George Brunnhoelzl III- Car was pretty good, tested on old tour tires, putting on 4 stickers soon "we will see what happens".

Andy Seuss - tested here the other day for 4 hours, just trying to get the car right, the white car (David Riggs machine) just has not been the same, looking to make it better when they practice tomorrow.

Erick Rudolph - feels like the southern cars might have an advantage with racing here as much as they do, but so far the car is pretty good

Matt Hirschman - looking to make a couple more runs, so far so good.

We know that over 30 have started the event in the past and with 30 on the pre-entry list we think that they could all start, but nothing is set in stone. There are lots of cars here, but some are not unloaded and or have not gone out yet. We will work on the pics and info as we go.
