“Track Enterprises officials, the promoters of the weekend event, ask us to come up with something with our cars on the track as part of the Saturday show,” remarked R.J. Scott, Managing Partner with CRA. “We thought this was something unique that we had never done with any of our divisions before. It gives our guys a little more track time in front of the ARCA Menards Series event crowd and the opportunity to make a little money as well. No points, not a bunch of laps, just a little fun on a Saturday night!”
