More than 75 racecars are expected for the Speedway’s opening night triple header, which will open the point championships for the Novelis Supermodifieds and Pathfinder Bank Small Block Supers.

The RoC Modified Richie Evans Memorial will be the second event on the RoC schedule with the ground pounders already having competed in one event this season with Eric Beers scoring a victory at Mahoning Valley Speedway on April 23.

A total of 31 RoC Modifieds were on hand for the RoC opener in April, with another stellar field expected this weekend.

Beers leads the series standings over Matt Hirschman, Don Wagner, Kristopher Graver, Earl Paules, Chuck Hossfeld, Jimmy Zacharias, Brian Defebo, Tony Hanbury and Patrick Emerling.

Last year, Mike Leaty topped a stout field of RoC machines to take home the coveted Evans Memorial clock at Oswego beating out Emerling, Hanbury, Tyler Rypkema, and Rusty Smith for the big win.
