On Saturday, the Show Me the Money Pro Late Model Series comes to a close as part of the Alabama State Championship at Montgomery Motor Speedway. Here are 10 Things to Know about this weekend's event.

- Saturday will conclude the 12th season of the Show Me The Money Pro Late Model Series at Montgomery Motor Speedway (AL). The track has now hosted 70 Show Me the Money Pro Late Model races with this Saturday’s being the 71st in the series history and sixth this season.

- The half-mile track is a fast venue for the Pro Late Models, but the semi-banked turns create for great racing as people search for the best way around the track to save their tires for the late stages. The half-mile was built in 1953. The track was dirt for the first three years before asphalt was laid down in 1956.

- The championship battle all comes down to the final race as Jake Garcia leads Gio Ruggiero by six points heading into the final 100-lap race. Ruggiero has a win and four top five finishes as Garcia has a pair of wins and five finishes in the top five. Garcia has eight career Show Me the Money wins and no championships, but has been second and third in the standings. We will see if he can complete the job.

- The racing card will consist of the 100-lap Show Me the Money finale, the Modifieds of Mayhem 50-lap dash, the Late Model Sportsman, Street Stocks and RoadRunners.

- It will be a tough sendoff for Christopher Tullis, who will give up the Show Me The Money title after having won it the last two seasons. He did post three top-five runs in five starts this season, but it was too much to overcome the success of Jake Garcia and Gio Ruggerio.

- Hunter Robbins won twice this season with the Show Me The Money Series. As far as we know he is not scheduled to race this weekend as he would be looking for win number three this season at the half-mile.

- In the Modifieds of Mayhem, Jaxson Bishop has a solid lead over Brandon Curren with two races to go. The 50 point cushion could land him the championship, but a strong car count this weekend and a large field at the 75-lap finale at the Snowball Derby could become trouble for Bishop. Lurking in third-place is Augie Grill who has won in three of the four races he’s run this season.

- Grant Thompson, Johnny Brazier, Josh Adkins, Evan Shotko, Zach Johnson, Jim Wall, Bryson Shaffer, Gavid Graham, JoJo Wilkinson, Zack Dixon, Brittney Zamora, Brian Reeves, Justin Bonnett and Jeff Dawkins are just some of the Pro Late Model driver expect to be on hand this weekend.

- Less than 30 points separate Daniel Jacks, Charles Davis, Kameron Wesenburg, and Keith Grace for the Montgomery Motor Speedway Street Stock crown. This race for the title will go down to the final laps to crown the champion.
