On Thursday night, the NLRA will race at the Norman County Raceway for the 22nd time in series history as part of the Norman County Fair.
Last season at Norman County, Dustin Strand, driver of the No. 71 Q&Z Plumbing & Heating Millenium SRT won both races held at the three-eighths mile oval, his second and third at the track in his NLRA career.
Strand is tied with Brad Seng, driver of the No. 12S S&S Transport MB Custom, as the winningest series regulars at the track with three a piece.
Racing begins at seven on Thursday night with IMCA Sprint Cars among the five classes on the card.
On Saturday night, the series heads west for the first of two visits this season to the Devils Lake Speedway near Doyon, ND. for the 3rd Annual Golden Hammer Classic presented by Walhalla Building Center.
Brad Seng and Shane Edginton, driver of the Performance Auto No. 5E, are the previous winners of the Golden Hammer, while Brody Troftgruben parked the No. 14 Applegren Const. Rocket in victory lane for the first time in his career last August at the ‘Devil’s Playground.’
