The All Stars will again be led into Williams Grove by series point leader Aaron Reutzel of Clute, Texas, who has six wins under this belt on the circuit this year.
Last year, Reutzel drove to victory in the first Gunn Memorial twin 20 and by doing so he became the first ever All Stars touring driver to win a main event at Williams Grove Speedway since the series first raced there in 1970.
Reutzel is going for his third All Stars circuit title in a row in 2020.

Following Reutzel’s win in the first Gunn Memorial twin last year, Lance Dewease came back to score the second of the twins but then Reutzel rallied again in September for another All Stars win at the track.
Thus, the locals known as the Pennsylvania Posse now hold a 35-3 record of victory against the touring stars as they again prepare to take on Williams Grove Speedway.
Invading independent Kyle Larson scored an All Stars win at Williams Grove in July of this season and in total Larson holds 12 this year in series action.
After the August 28 racing program, the All Stars Circuit of Champions will return to Williams Grove on Friday, September 18 to contest the Dirt Classic Qualifier.
The August 28 twin 20s will be another race in the 2020 Hoosier Diamond Series of races at the track.
