"Entries have been pouring in," said Operations Manager Kim Brown. "This looks to be one of the best years ever for the World Series and we are very excited about the nine nights. We have twenty two Super Lates already pre-entered and more coming in. They are coming from Florida, Ohio, California, Ontario, New York, and North Carolina. What a great field fans will see."
"We have had a large response from the ASA Crate Type Late Models with 31 already pre-entered. For that field, they are coming from all over the country it seems. Drivers are coming from states that we have not normally had for the World Series like Vermont, Kentucky, Iowa and Idaho. This truly is going to be great."
