In addition to their support, Halmar Racing will be providing a car from their team for NASCAR XFINITY driver and Fox Television racing analyst Kenny Wallace,” said Hearn. “When I first approached Kenny about coming to The Big Show, he said he wouldn’t come just to sign autographs. He wanted to race. So we’ve got a quality Modified lined up for him.”
The evening’s racing program will include group time trials, heat and consolation races, plus the big 100-lap feature race for the Modifieds.
