WHAT TO WATCH FOR

• The NASCAR K&N Pro Series East heads to historic Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, N.C., on Saturday, May 31. The NASCAR Hall of Fame 150 will be the fourth series event at “The Stadium,” which hosted 29 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races from 1958-71. NASCAR Next drivers and alumni won the first three visits to the .25-mile asphalt oval, a trend that is likely to continue with six members of the current class and three alumni entered in Saturday’s event.

• The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour will make its second attempt at the TSI Harley-Davidson 125 at Stafford (Conn.) Motor Speedway when it heads to the half-mile asphalt oval on Friday, May 30. Rain washed out the tour’s first attempt last Friday, but not before Bobby Santos captured the pole award in qualifying, his fourth in the last six qualifying attempts at Stafford. The veteran driver won this race during his 2010 championship season. Friday night’s event will be the second of four at Stafford this season, and the first of two under the lights.
