For Saturday’s finale, registered fans will be matched with the 24 starters with the fan linked to the race winner picking up $515 in cash and a pair of boots. … The opener is the Edwin Coggins Memorial, honoring a long-time racing supporter who died at last year’s event. … Jonathan Davenport, Chris Madden and Steve Francis won last year’s Super Bowl events. … Among drivers considering rookie runs on the series are Brandon Sheppard of New Berlin, Ill., and Austin Rettig of Sikeston, Mo. … Other non-series regulars expected: Gregg Satterlee, Dennis Franklin, Ross Bailes and Chris Ferguson. … Lucas Oil Production Studios plan MavTV telecasts of the event later in the season. … Golden Isles continues racing the following weekend, hosting big-block modifieds for the first time.
