Moler Raceway Park held their first fan appreciation night of the season Friday with reduced admission prices and a chance for fans to meet their favorite drivers and look at the cars during intermission. After being rained out the past two weeks fans and drivers alike were eager for some spring racing action and the ¼ mile speed plant would not disappoint. With April showers providing plenty of moisture and some help from the MRP track crew the racing surface would stay extremely smooth and fast throughout the evening providing plenty of excitement.
