The United Championship Racing Alliance heads towards I-75 Raceway for the annual "Spring-Loaded" 604/Crate Late Model event Saturday night for round #3 of the Red Line Synthetic Oil 2021 Championship.
Nearly $10,000 in posted prize monies will be on the line for the 24 starters, that's being headed by Kenny Kizzar (#0) of Soddy Daisy, who has two top 5 finishes already in 2021.
Kizzar is flanked in points by Sam Seawright of Alabama and Mack McCarter of Tennessee, the series first two winners of 2021.
It'll be "a whole new ballgame" Saturday at I-75 Raceway as new ownership and management has taken over the facility and completely reconfigured the 3/8's mile clay oval. It's now laid out like a paperclip shape, with higher banking.
Local dominator Cory Hedgecock of nearby Loudon has moved on to Super Late Model competition and it's unknown if he'll compete for his fourth consecutive "Spring-Loaded" victory.
Former Track Champion Kyle Courtney of Knoxville has already claimed that he'll be in attendance this weekend.
Last year's Rookie of the Year $1,000 bonus recipient Jason Cardwell of Knoxville sits 4th in the points standings, while this year's leading RotY Jerry Green, also of K-town, is currently fifth.
