“I won’t be there this weekend, so I guess I’ll have to give somebody else a chance to win” Beaumont said jokingly, “We’ve got a a couple cars coming form down south and some local boys who race pretty hard, so it’ll be interesting.”

Admission for the races is $10 for adults, $5 for seniors and students, and free for kids five and under.

Races start at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, and 1:00 p.m. on Sunday.
