Each of these drivers will be seeking glory at this edition of the Championships. There will be many drivers to watch throughout the weekend, Kyle Edgar has shown great speed throughout the season with many top notch performances in the ECKC series. Austin Bisschop has also been a top contender during this season in his class. We are looking for a solid breakout performance from him with the potential for victory.
