Pre-entry fee is $30 for each day or $40 if not received by Saturday, April 30.  On Saturday, Hornet Challenge entry formApril 30, 5 Lincoln pre-entries and 5 Macon pre-entries will be pulled from a draw to give them guaranteed starting spots in that race.  Those spots will only be used if the driver cannot make the show through the heats or last chance.  Definitely some incentive to enter early.
