The northern and southern Modified stars will engage in an all-out duel for racing supremacy with some of the biggest names in Modified racing including the likes of two-time and defending champion Burt Myers, Ted Christopher, Jason Myers, another two-time Shootout champion Matt Hirschman, Junior Miller and countless others.
The SK-Type Modifieds, an equally as competitive and tenacious brand of open-wheel racers, will compete in a 50-lapper of their own. New to the Shootout in 2010 will be the USA Modifieds. Joining the open-wheel brethren are the authentic and very racy Vintage Modified and Sportsman divisions.
The CRA-sanctioned 125 lap Super Late Model event will showcase drivers from various Super Late Model Series including CRA, PASS, the Blizzard Series along with a group of competitors from a number of other series and tracks.
