HAMPTON — After posting victories in the A Main and Top Dog races during last week’s season-opening program, Adam Florian of Suffolk will be looking to maintain his early momentum on Saturday as Arena Racing USA’s Hampton Roads Series returns to the Hampton Coliseum for Daily Press Kids Night.

Saturday’s lineup includes A, B and C (Rookie) Mains — 50 laps each. The top finishers from the A and B Mains will fill the 14-car starting grid for the 50-lap Top Dog finale.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and racing gets underway at 7. Drivers will be available to meet and greet fans before and after the program.
