100-Lap Special & Surprise Legends Series Add-On Coming Saturday

Headlining the event is a 100-lap special for the North Coast Compact Challenge (NCCC Mini Stocks). In addition, the event also features a surprise add-on to the lineup: the Great Lakes Legends Series will be laying down some laps running heat races and a 25-lap main event.
