A few of notes for tonight’s Kalamazoo Klash:
– 150-laps is the distance
– Double-file restarts all the way through the race
– The leader of the race will choose which lane he wants to restart in
– Lapped cars will go to the rear of the field
– There will be a free-pass or “Lucky Dog” each caution
– At the 100-lap mark, a dice will be thrown and an invert (from 1 to six drivers) will take place depending on where the dice lands. 
6:40
It’s currently 82 degrees and sunny. The sun is beginning to drop outside the 4th turn. The Boyne Super Late Model race should take place under sunny skies, while the Kalamazoo Klash we expect to be run under the lights.

Tires will be a big deal as drivers will have to save them for when they need them at key points in the race. The 15 minute break will allow teams to change all four tires. 
2:02
The Klash race is split into two segments. 100 laps then a 15 minute break and a 50 lap segment. After the break they will invert the top six for the final 50 laps. That’s not all after time trials the top 20 are locked in as the rest will have to race there way in. The invert for the start of the race will be 7 plus TWO dice rolls. There could be a 19 car invert for the A Main.
