This race will also be the finale for the Sioux Chief Showdown. Which allows drivers from the ARCA Menards Series, ARCA Menards Series East, and ARCA Menards Series West to compete against each other for a chance at a championship. Ty Gibbs currently is atop the points leaderboard and it will all come down to this Saturday if he will add the Sioux Chief Showdown to his impressive 2021 ARCA Season.

Swanson who got his first Super Late Model win earlier this year at Salem will return to the track for the 3rd time to try and find a win that would go a long way to solidifying him as one of the greatest racers of all times.
