Well-knowns or on their way up the ladder at the time of their victories were the likes of Jan Opperman, AJ Foyt, Ted Horn and Hinnershitz.
The super late models will race for a $2,000 to win payday while the winner also earns a guaranteed starting spot in the upcoming June Late Model Speedweek event at Williams Grove Speedway.
A banner field of late models should be expected considering the event will be the first of the year in the region for the full-body stock cars.
