Friday night was an open practice for those wanting to check out new rides, upgrades on equipment and set up or those just wanting to shake off the off-season rust. A special fast time challenge was held for each class with a two lap time trial. The fastest car would score a $70 bonus. It was also a chance for the track to work any bugs out of the new transponder system installed over the winter.
