(Flat Rock, MI—July 30, 2019): One of the most competitive weekly classes in the state of Michigan is preparing for its biggest race of the season this Saturday, August 3 at Flat Rock Speedway! The Corrigan Race Fuels 100 lap race for the ARCA DTS Drive Train Specialists Street Stocks hits “The Rock” for the all-green flag event.
A 30 lap B Main for the Street Stocks and a full race card for the ARCA Late Model Sportsman class is also on the schedule. The Bandoleros and exhibition races for the TKC Go-Karts will also take place Saturday evening, along with the Kids Power Wheels Derby.
To date, there have been 6 winners in the 8 races for both the A Main and B Main Street Stock features in 2019. The class has been averaging 27-30 cars per night, and the last 2 Saturdays have seen 33 and 34 cars in competition. The A and B Main classes are determined by qualifying times.
The 100 lap battle will award $1000 to the winner of the annual event at the ¼ mile paved oval. Jeff Metdepenningen is the defending 100 lap race winner and Ian Jezylo notched the B Main win last season.
Saturday’s race will be 100 laps of green flag racing, with double-file restarts as usual should the yellow flag appear. The pit crews will be staged in the infield on the Figure 8 track for pit stops if needed for the 100 lap contest.
