Spring Nationals Super Late Models
Feature Notes: The feature lineup is already set from back in May but there may be some additions and there will almost certainly some subtractions. Brandon Overton and the Randy Weaver/Chip Stone team have split so he most likely will be among those not racing tonight.
So far, the only new arrivals I have seen are David Payne and Rusty Ballenger in a second No. 1G Warrior house car.
Drivers who did not return tonight are Overton, Bruening, Frost, Tipton, McPherson, Ashby, and Helton.
