One crucial factor to consider is the track conditions. The US 131 track is known for being one of the best this year, allowing racers to generate significant power. ProCharger and blower cars, in particular, are expected to shine. However, with the cold weather, tuning for the track becomes paramount. Expect to see some tire-shaking and tire-smoking action as the racers grapple with the challenging conditions.


The 405 crew, well-known for their fierce competitiveness and camaraderie, faced off against each other in a series of intense races. One of the standout matchups was between Ryan Martin and Shawn "Murder Nova." Unfortunately for Ryan, luck wasn't on his side as he was defeated by his own teammate, Shawn "Murder Nova." It was a testament to the skill and determination of the 405 drivers, who never hold back, even when racing against their friends.

However, her journey came to an end in the semi-finals when she faced off against Nate Sayler, who emerged victorious in a thrilling battle. Nate Sayler's impressive performance earned him a spot in the finals, where he would face Kayla Morton.
