The ‘Land of the Three Wide’ hosts a 35-lap, $4,000-to-win main event.

The week of racing makes its final stop in Greenwood, La., at Boothill Speedway. Boothill Speedway will conclude its 50th anniversary season with the final two nights of the Wegner Automotive ‘Cajun Swing.’

Friday (Nov. 11) night features another 30-lap affair worth $4,000 to the winner.

The headline event of the week occurs on Saturday (Nov. 12) when the STSS Modifieds go for 50-laps and a $20,000 payday top prize in the ‘Gunslinger’ special.

The entire five-night swing will be broadcast live to a national audience on FloRacing (www.floracing.tv) as part of the $150 annual subscription.
