The race was so well received, Jake Hodge and the team at Wagler Motorsports Park agreed to do it again in 2020. Mark your calendars for August 28-30, 2020 for the 2nd Annual Working Man’s $10 Grands.

The Working Man’s $10 Grands included $2,000 Gamblers races on Friday and Saturday night. Those events were highlighted by the two $10,000 main events on Saturday and Sunday.

One cool thing about the race was the No-Box winner had the option to take the $2,000 and walk away, or pay a small fee and join the Box class. Both No-Box winners paid the upgrade, joined the Box class, and both earned a spot in the $10,000 final round.

Final round coverage is listed below.
