For the second and final time of the season the IMCA Northern Sport Mods will hit the high banks of Silver Dollar Speedway. Originally, this division had multiple races scheduled for 2023. Between rain and heat cancellations, the schedule was reduced to just two shows.

Information about where to collect your winnings will be talked about at the drivers’ meeting that afternoon. The West Coast Hobby Stock Tour will pay their teams separately.
