  1. HUGE EVENT: More than 80 cars entered. Since the event is so prestigious, 88 cars entered to battle at the paperclip-shaped short track in Martinsville, Virginia. This includes a plethora of CARS Tour drivers, then most prominent late model stock racing series owned by the likes of Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kevin Harvick, Justin Marks and Jeff Burton, big NASCAR names. Some would say the CARS Tour is the biggest series next to NASCAR itself. Of those 88 entries, 83 were able to battle in the heat races. Among them, are big names like Carson Kvapil, Brenden Queen, Mason Diaz, Ryan Millington, Landon Huffman, Doug Barnes and Bobby McCarty. 
  2. HEAT RACES: They narrow down the race field with heat races. They have to divide up those 80+ entries and hold mini-races to figure out how they’ll line up. Just 40 cars will make the race, so the 40 best finishers in the heat races will advance.  
  3. DRAMA: The emotion at this race is high. Not only is Martinsville Speedway a beloved short track venue with a highly sentimental trophy (the famous grandfather clock) it’s known as a track to bring out driver tempers. It’s a race that people like Josh Berry, Mark Martin, Lee Pulliam and Timothy Peters have won – but not without a grueling 200 laps on the famous short track, where bumping and banging is a guarantee. 
  4. HOW TO WATCH: The race airs on FloRacing and the Motor Racing Network airs a radio broadcast from the track. While the green flag drops at 5 p.m. the broadcast will begin earlier with the dramatic heat races on Sunday.
