Stage Racing is making it's debut in Grand National, with tonight being one of three races this season to have three stages, along with the Coca Cola World 300 on September 28th, and the Ford 250 on November 16th. Tonight will consist of two 25 lap stages, and one fifty lap stage at the end.

Look for the Arizona driver to be near the front and in contention come lap 100 yet again. Also look out for both defending champions Trevor Brownlee and Stephen Laarkamp.
