It's a triple play this weekend at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway, with three 50-lap features on the 5/8-mile oval Saturday night along with its 1/4-mile local program. Here are 10 things to know for this weekend's triple header.

- The Pro Late Models, Modifieds of Mayhem and Super Trucks will all go for 50 laps, making up the triple 50 format.

- 26 Pro Late Models were listed in the pre-race entry list sent out by the speedway earlier in the week. The three winners this season have been Cole Williams, Hunter Wright, and Dylan Fetcho. They sit atop the point standings.

- The Modifieds of Mayhem take on the Nashville high banks for the third time in series history. Jeff Letson won there in 2016, while Bill Burba won one year ago in the Tour's return to Music City.

- Already this season Jaxson Bishop has won at Crisp Motorsports Park, and Augie Grill is twice a winner at Five Flags Speedway (FL) and Montgomery Motor Speedway (AL). Both will be in action on the Nashville track this weekend.

- According to the series there are 22 pre-race entries for the Modifieds of Mayhem Nashville event. Half of the drivers hail from Alabama as those racers will look to take a trophy back to the Yellowhammer State.

- Jaxson Bishop is the series point leader after three races.

- Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway is a track loaded with history. The NASCAR Cup Series ran the track for several seasons into the 1980s before switching to other venues. Plans are in the works to get NASCAR to return to the NASCAR track in some fashion.

- All the action leads up to the 38th All American 400 weekend at Nashville, coming in October.

- The remaining events in the season for the Modfieds of Mayhem will include two stops at Montgomery and two stops at Five Flags, with the finale coming on Snowball Derby weekend.
