Following a win for Lou Kennedy, Jr. in the series' debut at the track in 2011, the series has raced ten more features at the track, all of which have been during Governor's Cup weekend.
Wade Nygaard won the first two Governor's Cup championships while he and Mark Dobmeier, driver of the Buffalo Wild Wings No. 13, split feature wins in the series' first two trips for the event in 2018 and 2019.
In 2020, Brendan Mullen, who was coming off his first series win just six days prior in Jamestown, won the opening night, while veteran Bobby Martin won the second night and the overall title.
Since then, Mullen, driver of the Native Nation's Cannabis No. 11M, has won the opening night three straight seasons, while Mark Dobmeier and Jade Hastings have won night two in 2021 and 2022 respectively. Last season, Dobmeier became the first Governor's Cup champion to not win either one of the main events.
Coming into the weekend, Jade Hastings, driver of the Ault Construction No. 8H, is the new series point leader and will carry a 19 point lead over Brendan Mullen and a 22 point lead over Mark Dobmeier into the weekend.
Nick Omdahl in the CMS No. 0 and Blake Egeland in the Engelstad Farms No. 26 complete the current top five.
Zach Omdahl is sixth in the Minn-Kota Power Co-op No. 17, with Jack Croaker eight with the Hugo's Family Marketplace eight-ball.
Tom Egeland is eighth in the Egeland Racing Engines No. 14, with Adam Sobolik ninth in the Evil Iron Classics No. 52. Austin Pierce rounds out the current top ten in the Opp Construction No. 2A.
