Super Stocks, Midwest Modifieds and Hornets are also part of the racing lineup, with Northern Renegade Winged Sprint Cars racing Friday night as well.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
