Jason McPherson returns to his home track and will be a welcome addition.
Street stocks have an amazing 32-car field and the intensity will be insane as only the top 20 will make the final. Look for plenty of wheel banging as the fast cars muscle their way into contention.
Steve Harvey, Corey Bauld, Troy Russell and Dale Riley Jr will be just some of the names to watch.
