On Saturday night, the series is scheduled to race for its highest payday in series history, as the fourth annual Golden Hammer Classic will pay $5,000, thanks to Walhalla Builders.
This will be the final scheduled visit to the Devils Lake Speedway this season after the scheduled race in May and the originally scheduled Golden Hammer on June 25th were lost to rain. Mike Greseth, driver of the No. 17 Morton Buildings Rocket XR1, picked up his first Devils Lake win on July 23rd.
This will be the 30th visit for the series to the third-mile high-banked oval near Crary, North Dakota. Brad Seng, driver of the No. 12S S&S Transport MB Custom and Dustin Strand, driver of the No. 71 Q&Z Plumbing & Heating Millenium lead all drivers in previous victories with the series at the speedway with four triumphs each.
