Track owner and promoter J.P. Josiasse says it's a great chance to experience the best in short track stock car racing excitement.

"Our drivers and race teams get pumped-up for these shows and love the opportunity to meet the fans who show their support week-after-week. Its more than just signing autographs and handing-out treats. They're building base of support that will last for years and that's a great way to create a new generation of fans."
