With the sanctioned event cancelled there will be no sanction fee for the competitors. The same night will see the first-ever appearance of the brand new RUSH Modified Series at Eriez.
The Bonnell Collision Center Crate Late Models will be showcased with past champions Max Blair, Kyle Zimmerman, and Chad Wright defending the home turf against the best Crate Late Model drivers in the northeast region including Joel Prosser, Wayne Robertson, and Kyle Thomas.
