This year there will be a stop in Northern California to make it seven races in eight days across three states which come out to be over 700 miles on the road over the course the series of races.

Last year’s edition saw Brian Poppa emerge victorious to seal his fate as the series champion at GHR after winning the feature with 35 total cars making the trip.

The home turf will be defended fiercely by some of the local talent including Scott Miller who has three wins this season already.
