True to its name, the 2022 IceBreaker at the 4/10-mile paved oval will be the first chance for Late Model Stock, Super Truck, Limited Late Model and Mini Stock drivers and teams to run their cars in feature events this year as the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series season nears.
The entry list for the seventh annual IceBreaker is stuffed with talent, including drivers from the NASCAR national series and ARCA Menards Series ranks in Josh Berry, Jeb Burton, Mason Diaz, Thad Moffitt and Connor Mosack, to name a few.
With the addition of Keen Parts and CorvetteParts.net as partners, the IceBreaker in 2022 will award $10,000 to the winner, up from $5,000 in previous years.
