The “Madhouse,” as Bowman Gray is known, is a flat .25-mile track in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, that delivers grassroots racing every season. It has hosted 29 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races in its history, from 1958-1971. Rex White scored the most Cup wins here with six — including four in a row from 1961 to 1962. Junior Johnson and Richard Petty had four Cup Series wins here, while David Pearson had three. Bobby Allison won the final Cup Series race at the track in 1971, but the track has thrived at the local level ever since.

Saturday’s lineup includes 200-lap modified feature, plus a 40-lap sportsman race. There also will be races in the street stock and stadium stock division.
