Friday night?s schedule heats up as Volusia?s own Florida DIRTcar Late Model drivers hit the dirt in a head-to-head battle with $3,000 on the line, followed by UMP DIRTcar Modifieds tackling the monster half-mile oval for a shot at the $1,200 checkered flag. Adult general admission is $20 ? $15 with a PRI badge. Late Model entry fee is $75.

The Convention Holiday Classic winds down on a high note Saturday as the Top Gun Sprint Car Series and Florida Mini-Sprints take to the stage for high speed thrills. Adult admission on Saturday night is $15.

Santa in the Flag Stand

VSP has made special arrangements with Santa Claus and he has agreed to hang out in the flag stand for the 3 nights of the Holiday Classic. We have put him in touch with Ronnie Brown to see if he can pick up some pionters.
