The Betty and Mario Crook owned and promoted facility will host their lone AELMT race of the 2017 calendar.
In two appearances at Mt. Pleasant in 2016, the “Illini Invader”. Rich Bell would go to victory lane on June 22nd while the “Coleman Comet”, veteran, Curtis Roberts scored his second career win, this one coming at his home track. In one appearance during the inaugural 2015 season, the “Traverse City Terror”, Brandon Thirlby would take home the checkered flag.
This event will be the fourth all-time appearance in AELMT history at the track as defending Track Champion, Eric Spangler, the $10,000 winner of the last AELMT race, the 3rd Annual Merritt Showdown, will look to continue his string of success at Mt.
