    Anyone have an idea on car count for the Mods?

  2. Fast Eddie says

    No entry lists are posted usually, but this might get interesting with the “race within a race” format since the MRS is also involved. They have extra $$ if you’re a member along with MRS points. I would think there will still be a number of Open cars as well. With the drafting that happens there it’s still fun to watch even if it’s a smaller field.
