It was an extremely busy Friday night at AMSOIL Speedway as the Hall of Fame inducted five new members, the Northern Vintage Stock Car Racers were on hand and there were a pair of make-up features from July 11 to be taken care of. Though it was a cool and gloomy day not a drop of precipitation marred the night's action.
