The All-Star Shootout has a 30-minute time limit and will feature two segments with a mandatory caution at Lap 20. The race will be restarted by the car’s last completed green flag lap except for those cars involved in a random number selection that will determine the number of cars to be inverted for the restart.

“That’s a really cool event that the speedway puts on every year and I know the guys look forward to it,” said Bonsignore, who has two top-fives and a seventh-place finish in the Shootout. “It’s definitely a good thing to be a part of and I’m looking forward to it.”

The mods will also be on the track Saturday, too, as the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour will have the first of two points races, the Eastern Propane & Oil 100. Doug Coby is the reigning July race winner, which will be the first race on a Tripleheader Saturday of racing that also includes the NASCAR XFINITY Series Overton’s 200 and the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East United Site Services 70.

    How is the Whelen Modified Tour’s Most Popular Driver left out of this race? That’s OK, she’ll be in the event soon enough, plus I can’t make it on Friday. So go Stolimoto! Bottoms up boys!

  2. Based on previous champions, race winners from 2016, and then points from 2016 until a full field of 20 cars.

  3. Thank God pit stop Ali is out that saved some teams some money

    Liz, in racing and government, there are stark differences in the popular vote and actual performance.

    I’m thinking Max Zachem is going to have a good race.

  5. Fast Eddie says

    I hate it when family stuff happens on Loudon Saturdays! Good luck and safe race to all, especially the Zachem and Santos teams!
