The 410 sprint car drivers that enter the program are in line to receive thousands of dollars in contingency cash and prizes to go along with the more than $55,000 in purse money that is posted for the prestigious and lucrative event.
The super late models are also on the program and will race in a 25-lap, $2,000 to win, $200 to start main event.
The 2017 version of the Dream Race will honor two-time Port Royal Speedway track champion Mike Wagner, who has spent over 30 years of his life racing sprint cars, most prominently at Port Royal.
Over $2,500 in contingency cash will be given away to the sprint car drivers on the night in the forms of lap money, hard charger awards, fast time awards and more.
The Dream Race will again consist of time trials and a pair of 16-lap semi-main events that carry full purses worth nearly $10,000 alone before the big 35-lap Dream main brings more than $30,000 to the table.
