Fueled by Monster Energy, the NASCAR CITGO Lubricants Late Models, NASCAR Spec-Mods and Street Stocks will race 105 laps on the half-mile.  The INEX Legends will have a 30 lap contest to wrap up their championship season on the quarter-mile.  The INEX Bandoleros will be racing 20 to end their championships.

Faster Pastor races are well-known for producing great action and a great lineup of pastors will duke it out in NASCAR Mini Stocks on Saturday night.  Parishioners from the participating churches can pre-purchase tickets through their churches for just $10.  Participating churches include Valley Bible Fellowship, Sunshine Church, Westside Believers Fellowship, Northminster Presbyterian, and Calvary Bible Church.  All boy scouts and girl scouts, along with their troop leaders, will be admitted free of charge and boy scouts will present the flags during opening ceremonies.

On the half-mile speedway, David Mayhew has already clinched the NASCAR CITGO Lubricants Late Model championship and will look to add to his 15 win tally on the year.  Irwindale regular Andrew Porter will join the field for his first start of the season as well as the return of Eric Richardson to the division.

Spec-Mod points are led by Bakersfield police officer Chris Dalton, who won the first three division races but has only scored one win in the last four starts.  Eric Brust jumped to third in the points after his win with the division on October 5th.

Rich Delong III has a perfect three-for-three record in the Street Stock division this year, with Saturday’s race the final event for the division before a full slate in 2014.

Young driver Buddy Shepherd of Bakersfield will wrap up his INEX Legends track championship on Saturday in a season that has included three main event victories.  Shepherd has already clinched the title ahead of Claremont’s “Tricky” Ricky Schlick who has won three of the last four races for the class.

Eight-time INEX Bandolero winner Tyler Bannister has also already wrapped up the division crown, but will try to get his ninth win on Saturday.  Ryan “The Rhino” Vargas of La Marada has won three times to rank second in the division with rookie Colton Page in third.

Saturday night’s events are just $15 for Adults, $8 for Seniors 65+, Active Military, Children 6-15, and Children 5 and under are free!  A Family Pass for two adults and two seniors or children is $40 (Box office only).  Reserved stadium seats are $20.  Grandstand gates open at 4 p.m. with autographs at 6 p.m. and opening ceremonies at 7 p.m.
