Race Preview:

After his dominant performance in the Snowball 500, Ryan Hendrickson enters the Freezin' 250 as the pre-race favorite. There are questions over his ability to reclaim the Freezin' 250 crown, however, as his best motor failed along the way to winning the Snowball. How quick will Hendrickson be after this? Over the last few months many have stepped up their racing program. Potential winners include Mark Webster, Scott Udave, "Hoss" Phoenix, Warren Lux, Larry Weaver and Kevin Hendrickson.

The Big Block IROC race is part of SCCOTTT's ongoing drive to better T-Jet racing. Similar to a Fray style car, but with unlimited power, Big Block was conceived to help level the playing field and to bring preparation costs down.

** The four cars used in the Big-Block IROC support race for the Freezin' 250 will be given away at race's end. Every driver who enters the race will automatically be entered to win a car as well. Each car is prepared by KRD Racing and valued at approximately $50.**

SCCOTTT's Friday Night 1/32 Racing Series runs every Friday evening with races beginning at 7:00 PM. Current classes are World Sportscar Championship, (WSC,) Trans Am and 1/24 Le Mans. Call or e-mail for rules.
