The purse in all divisions combined will be over $100,000 throughout the weekend!!

Series Director Dewayne Keith stated "We are beyond excited to be apart of this monumental weekend. It will be the biggest weekend for the series in our 40 year history. Cherokee Speedway is a big part of the series history going back to the Gault family and BJ Parker in 1992. Since then the series has raced there consistently and has always seen a great show!! If the crowd at the STANDING ROOM ONLY March Madness earlier this year was any indication then we are really gonna see something special for The Mike Duvall Memorial!!!!"
