The final regular race program of the year before year-ending specials close out the season at Lakeside Speedway takes place this Friday featuring the first STARS Mod-Lite ‘Rage on the River.’

Joining the program are A-Mods, Stock Cars, B-Mods, Pure Stocks and E-Mods.

Mod-Lite contenders will look for the Rage on the River crown and to dethrone Dillon Raffurty, who recently swept the action at the Boone Nationals and has racked up a 30-win season in his No. 46 Mod-Lite.

Other drivers to watch in Lakeside Speedway classes include A-Mod champion Nic Bidinger, previous B-Mod winner Tim Powell, champion Kasey Shields in Stock Cars, multiple-time winner Spencer Reiff in Pure Stocks and recent winner Eddie Ingram in E-Mods.
