After the races on Friday night, Cunningham Fertilizer and other area sponsors will be hosting a post-race party for all drivers and teams, with three kegs of beer and Karaoke going as late as party-goers can last.

All classes return on Saturday for the Memphis Nationals finale, with last-chance qualifiers, pole scrambles and main events for all seven divisions. The 12 qualified drivers from Thursday and Friday in the Modified, Stock Car, B-Mod, Hobby Stock, Hornet and Cruiser classes will each battle it out in a "pole scramble" to determine the starting line-up for the feature races. The Super Late Model "pole scrambles" will feature the top 10 drivers from Friday's A-main qualifier. The remaining spots in the main event fields will be filled through last-chance qualifiers in each division.

In Saturday's main events, Hornets will be racing for $300 to win and $70 to start, Cruisers will battle for $300 to win and $75 to start, Hobby Stocks will race for $700 to win and $100 to start, B-Mods are going for $1,000 to win and $100 to start and Stock Cars will be fighting for $2,000 to win and $100 to start.
