The drivers are testing their cars today, with qualifying set to begin tomorrow, April 12. Racing is set for Saturday and Sunday. 

Lucas said this race is used as a tune-up, a chance for drivers to see how their car looks ahead of the division races, and what changes drivers need to make to their cars. Lucas' first Division 6 race of 2019 is in Boise, Idaho on May 2.
