For the ninth time this season, the IMCA Sport Mods will attack the quarter-mile bull ring. The division continues to be led by Jimmy Ford. His lead over Shaun Merritt stands at just 12-points. Scott Savell sits in the third spot just one-point back of Merritt. Hunter Merritt sits fourth and is only three back of Savell. These four drivers have attended all eight races up to this point. Ford is the only one in the top four to get a main event win this year. Look for one of these four to end up in victory lane this Saturday night.


Howard Law picked up his fifth win of the season during the previous Hobby Stock point race. Only twice this season has Law not parked his No. 14 in victory lane. He leads Kyle Cheney by 32-points going into the final two races of the year. To his credit, Cheney has secured a win this season. Zach Lindgren is four points behind Cheney and eager to get a win at Marysville. Joe Gillock and Jacob Bright round out the top five. Fifty-four different drivers have earned championship points this season. The real question is, can anyone beat Law?


Bobby Butler is 30-points ahead of Korey Lovell in the winged 360 sprint car division. This Saturday marks the eleventh point race of the year for the winged warriors. There has been no true dominant driver this year. Only one driver has won multiple main events. That honor goes to William Fielding. Butler the leader, has a win, but consistency has helped catapult him into the point lead. The top five in points is evenly spread out. Thirteen drivers have competed in at least eight races coming into this Saturday. That number shows the strength of weekly winged 360 sprint car racing at Marysville.
