On Sunday, October 8 the Wingless 600s will be racing for $4,000 to win while seeing $400 to start. The Winged 270s will also battle for a $4,000 paycheck while receiving $400 for last place. «I wanted to see a race that paid really well, but also paid good all they way back,» explained Serrano.

The Skyscraper' will provide action on the race track on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday Oct 6-8. «There are so many variables that go into having a huge event like this, and with the way our track's been the past few years and the fantastic racing that the micros put on, I for one can't wait for October to come quick enough. We are going to have a unique and intriguing qualifying format that I think the racers will think is fair for everyone,» Serrano explained.
«I've talked to a bunch of drivers and to say that they're excited, would be a severe understatement. I've also talked to several individuals that are interested in sponsorship of all kinds that will only benefit the drivers to the max for this milestone event.

Like I said, details about this show will be coming out non-stop from now until the race itself.»
