Brandon Oakley, Brandon Hermiller, Jerrod Foley, Travis Braden, Brent Downey, and Kody Evans are among the first of those drivers to pull onto the racing surface.
Now the CRA JEGS machines will roll onto the track for the first time today.
Ross Kenseth is hoping for a big win here this weekend and a big win next month at Milwaukee. The former All American 400 and Winchester 400 winner is set for the Howie Lettow Memorial 150.
One of the most prestigious Super Late Model events in the country celebrates its 30th running in 2013.  It’s the World Crown 300 at Jefferson, Georgia’s Gresham Motorsports Park.  The World Crown winners’ list reads like a who’s-who in short track racing and drivers from throughout the country will try to etch their name into World Crown history on July 4 in the 30th annual running of the 300-lap event.  For more details on the 30th Annual World Crown 300 at Gresham Motorsports Park, visit www.racegmp.com
Berlin Super Stocks will be the first to practice, with Ben Welch (#67) and Nate Walton (#66) being the first to hit the track.
There is no pre entry list for the Outlaw Super Late Models so as they roll in we’ll let you know who they are.
One of the bigger stories we’ll be following all weekend long is how many JEGS/CRA teams running Friday that are not already entered for Saturday will go ahead and enter late for the Battle at Berlin 251 on Saturday.

TJ Reaid is one of the drivers here this weekend that has never raced here. Don’t count him out as he’s worked with and watched another race here from The KBM pit box when Kyle Busch went to victory lane.
While all the cars on the grounds may not be here yet, we are expecting a healthy field here for the Battle at Berlin.
