It all starts on Friday when Williams Grove hopes to return to action. The 410 sprint cars enhance the Grove show with a Yellow Breeches 500 program. Yellow Breeches races offer $500 just to start the feature.

This year, the Grove will adopt a new qualifying format for its Yellow Breeches races. Timed hot laps will define the heat race fields. Also on the Grove’s schedule this week is its first race of the season for the 358 sprints.
