Entering The Unknown: As the series heads to Montgomery, the only active drivers who have competed at the Central Alabama track in past Pro Cup events are Clay Rogers, , and Bill Plemmons Jr. With that in mind, the KOMA Unwind 200 could be one of the most exciting races of the 2013 season. There are just two races left until we reset the field and start our Championship Series, meaning our drivers are going to be racing as hard as ever to visit Edelbrock Victory Lane.
