Ridgeway, VA – The field for the richest Late Model Stock Car race in the country has been set. Over seventy cars took to the half-mile speedway earlier this afternoon to narrow the field down to forty-two. The only two cars that were safe – Stacy Puryear and Tommy Lemons, Jr.

Philip Morris, Josh Berry, and Brandon Pierce were the three winners in their respective heat races has the sun began its descent over the famous Paperclip shaped track. Ten cars from each heat race transferred into the main feature making up the first thirty-two starters. Everyone else, that could answer the bell, were sent to the 25-lap Last Chance Qualifier.

Justin Carroll took the checkered flag in that feature earning him the thirty-third starting position once the green flag waves later this evening. The race is set to roll off at 8:00 PM EDT. The feature is set to run in three segments. The first scheduled break will come at lap 100 where teams will have a five minutes to change up to four tires and add up to ten gallons of fuel. After some pushback earlier this afternoon, teams are also allowed to make minor adjustments on the car, no hard parts. The second planned break will come at lap 180 where again, teams will have five minutes to change up to four tires, add ten gallons of fuel, and minor adjustments – no hard parts.
