And a $1,000 award is available to drivers who finish in the top 10 positions in all four races. Drivers were required to pre-register by March 1 to be eligible for the special awards.

“I think it’s going to be a really important race for us,” said Series 2016 Champion Todd Gilliland. “The way we started last year, with the first two K&N West wins, was a big momentum booster to start the season. It got us an early lead in the points, which made it easier to manage through the whole season.”
