Notes: The rainout last weekend shortened the five-week Art Palmi Dodge October Super Series to four weeks. The Mini Stock Figure 8s, which had been scheduled for the first week of the series, have been rescheduled for the last weekend of the month. The series gives drivers who are competitive but unable to claim the track championship in their class a chance to redeem themselves. Because the series is short, drivers are inclined to push a little harder and race a little faster in this winner-take-all situation. Also because of the rain last weekend, heat races will be used to establish starting positions for Pure Stocks and Mini Stocks, instead of running the usual A and B Mains. However, both classes will return to the A and B Main format in the following four weeks.
