The following schedule change has been announced for PGS. April 7th the TBRA Sprint Cars have been added to our schedule and the Late Model Sportsman have been rescheduled to April 14th. The Open Wheel Modified race on April 14th has been rescheduled to May 12th. On May 12th the Open Wheel Modified will run 100 Laps with a $100.00 entry Fee. There will be a mandatory pit stop at lap 60. The teams will be able to have a 3 man pit crew (driver does not count) that can change up to 2 tires either side or the front or back of car, add fuel, and make any adjustments necessary. There will be a 5 minute time limit for this pit stop. This race will pay $2,000 to win and pays nicely thru the field with $125 to start. This payout is guaranteed with a 20 car field. Track tire rule is 8? Goodyear treaded, but Hoosier 8? treaded tires can be run with a $20.00 per tire stamp. The rules for this race are as follows, if 2 or more cars have contact and there is a yellow flag all cars will be relegated to the rear of the field unless someone is man enough to tap out and take responsibility for the incident. No penalties for those who stop to avoid the accident. Last 10 laps are all green flag.

As a side note just to clear the air, contrary to what certain drivers have been saying. The owners of the Punta Gorda Speedway are and have been since June of 2010 are Kevin Williams and Mike Chase. But the owners would like to thank Danny Yates Landscaping, Q Auto Injury Attorney, Allied Recycling, Bubba the Love Sponge, Muscle Car City, B & R Color, Perfect Pest Control and Legends Cars of SW Florida for presently being the only local businesses that have stepped up to help the Punta Gorda Speedway become more successful.
