During the 12 weeks of Virginia Army National Guard Dirt Series action the speedway will feature six nights of the twin race format that was used and which became popular during the last part of the 2012 season.

Weekly divisions begin competition for the division championships and the Guard’s Dirt Series championship with races on April 13. The final points race will be run on Sept. 14.

Divisions will include the Victory Lap Late Models, Truckin’ Thunder Sportsman, Budweiser Modifieds and the Collision One Limited Stock Cars.
