‘Mashed Potato’ Modifieds headline the card in a 50-lap feature offering $5,500 to the winner. Anthony Perrego is a two-time event winner, taking the inaugural in 2013 driving for Gary Mann and then last year’s program aboard the Brian Smith-owned No. 44.

Perrego will look to defend those honors against a tough field.

Speedway standout Mike Gular, Afton (N.Y.) and Thunder Mountain (N.Y.) driver Alan Barker, Thunder Mountain regulars Brian Malcolm and Colton Wilson, and Capital District Sportsman graduate Rocky Warner in a Jake Spraker-owned ride and several more.

Look for the Ricci family to be out in full force looking to cement another high-profile victory at their hometown track.
