Lakeside Speedway is gearing up to celebrate both Gary Dellinger and Gary Davis on Friday evening with the annual Gary D Stock Car Special. Both men were long-time race fans with close ties to Lakeside Speedway and each man has an area at the speedway named in his honor. This includes the Gary Dellinger Memorial Pit Building where drivers check in to race and the Gary Davis Lineup Memorial Road where the drivers line up and stage to race… hence the Gary D Memorial.

Stock Car drivers will compete for additional purse money with the set payout at $1,500 to win and $160 to start. The full payout is as follows: 1) $1500, 2) $700, 3) $500, 4) $450, 5) $425, 6) $375, 7) $350, 8) $325, 9) $300, 10) $275, 11) $250, 12) $225, 13) $200, 14) $180, 15-24) $160. If there are 24 or more cars checked in, the track will add to the overall purse and the race will pay $1,750 to win and a whopping $200 to start with all finishing positions increased.

In addition to the Stock Cars, classes competing this Friday include A-Mods, B-Mods, Pure Stocks and Mod Lites. The Mod-Lites also have additional money on the line as their feature event will pay $500 to the winner. Grand Nationals and E-Mods have the night off.
