The format for Thursday and Friday will follow the standard WAR Race Procedure. All drivers will draw in for heat race position. The top 16 in passing points from heat races will lock into that night’s A-Main. The FK Midwest “High Point Man” will redraw to decide the starting line-up for the top 6 in passing points for the A-Main. The remainder of the field will battle for the top 4 transfer positions in the 12 lap B-Main. The A-Main will be 25 laps to the checkered flag and standard payout.

The format for Saturday will be similar. All drivers, other than the 6 locked in competitors, will draw in for heat race position. The top 10 in passing points from heat races will transfer directly to the 30 lap A-Main. The remainder of the field will run a 12 lap B-Main with 6 cars transferring to the A-Main that will be $1,200 to win and $200 to start. The top 6 locked in drivers will redraw for their starting positions in the A-Main.
