Wednesday will serve as a travel day with teams hauling across I-90 to downtown Jackson, MN, where a hauler parade is scheduled. A fan fest at the track with live music and more activities will follow to wrap up the day off.
On Thursday, June 24, the 43rd annual AGCO Jackson Nationals commences at the recently renovated 4/10th-mile oval. Back-to-back purses at $10,000-to-win, $1,000-to-start will lead into Saturday’s nightcap which is boosted to $50,000-to-win, $2,000-to-start.
