It’s the biggest event the track has seen.

The annual Hot Shoe 100 is set for Kinross Speedpark this weekend with the main event set to be the 100-lap modified feature that will see the winner take home the over $10,000 prize.

The event began in 2014 as a fundraiser and single-day event but has grown in its six-year history to an event that has raised more than $35,000 for cancer charities.

In addition to the modified feature, the main event of the evening, the two-day event will also see racing in a pair of other divisions – ABC stock car and four cylinders.

In addition to the main modified feature, a b-main feature will also run with the winner taking home $2,500 and a c-main feature will also run with the winner taking home $1,500.

Among the drivers set to compete in the modified division is veteran NASCAR driver Kenny Wallace.

The 25-year racing veteran competed in over 900 events before his retirement in 2015. He has continued to drive local tracks similar to Kinross since his retirement.

Practice for the event began Thursday evening in all three divisions and will continue through Friday before racing begins with qualifying on Friday afternoon at 4:30 p.m.

Dash and heat race action is set to begin at 7 p.m. Friday.

Drivers will get a chance to run practice laps again on Saturday, beginning at 11 a.m. with a drivers meeting set for 3:30 p.m.

The features in each division are set to begin at 6 p.m. on Saturday with the 100-lap modified feature set to follow the intermission on Saturday night.
