After a 4-hour practice session scheduled for 5-9 p.m. MST on Tues., January 12, competitors and fans will be invited to hang around the 3/8-mile oval for some camaraderie at the annual Pit Party. The Fired Up Freedom Fire Truck/Catering Truck will be on hand to feed everyone in the pits and highlights of the first two nights of racing will be shown on the big screen TVs that are on the truck.
The practice night get-together is sponsored by Rugby, N.D.-based Total Ag Solutions, an agricultural services company that specializes in grain bins, grain handling, grain dryers and clear span building sales across all of North Dakota and areas of Montana, South Dakota and Minnesota. The firm is also a sponsor of Lance Schill, a Langdon, N.D., racer who competes in the Wild West Shootout.

Teams are welcome to practice as many times as they like during the four-hour session that spans 5-9 p.m MST. Grandstand and pit admission is free for the Tuesday practice.
With two nights of racing and six features in the books, there have been six different winners. Jonathan Davenport and Ricky Thornton Jr. have split wins in the Dirt Track Bank Super Late Model division presented by Black Diamond Race Cars. While the $250,000 Keyser Quarter Million Dollar Bonus for a clean sweep of the event is off the table, each driver is still in pursuit of the $100,000 bonus for five wins and $25,000 for four wins. Additionally, the first of the two competitors to reach three victories would receive a $10,000 windfall.
Dustin Strand and Jake Gallardo have split victories in Mesilla Valley Transportation / Border Tire Modified action presented by Arizona Differential.
