“We’ve had some practice sessions the past few weeks, and worked on developing pit parking and strategies that would allow us to have our first race of the year,” Magnolia Motor Speedway promoter, Johnny Stokes said. “I’m very excited to have this event, but I can’t stress enough how important it will be for the teams to please maintain their distance in the pit area. We want to make sure that we go above-and-beyond to meet all of the requirements that have been laid out for us.”
