The finale of the three race weekend will take place on Saturday night at Peoria Speedway in Peoria, Illinois. This as well will be a $5,000 to win event. The series was originally scheduled to compete here back in April before having to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic that kept Illinois race tracks closed.
