Front gates open and afternoon practice rounds get under way at 2 p.m. As they enter the Speedway, fans will be greeted by an assortment military vehicles on display. The drivers meeting is scheduled for 4:15 and time trials start at 4:30. Pre-race festivities, featuring a planned flyover, begin at 6:30, while the Champ Karters kick off the evening's racing program shortly after 7.

As if Late Model title contenders needed any extra incentive, the first of Saturday's Twin 50s will also be a battle for the Chamber of Commerce Commander's Cup.
Prior to the race, the top five drivers in the current standings  C.E. Falk, Greg Edwards, Casey Wyatt, Mark Wertz and Shayne Lockhart will each draw a coin to see which of the five service branches they'll be representing. The highest finisher among the five will claim the Cup, which will reside at the winner's base for the next year.
