Nss 4/5


After a rain-out last Saturday night, New Smyrna Speedway returns to action
this week with a 100-lap Bright House Challenge Super Late Model event along
with racing in four other divisions.
This years’ Bright House Challenge series is being run at both New Smyrna
Speedway and DeSoto Speedway in Bradenton. The opening Bright House race of
the year was held at DeSoto a few weeks ago and saw Joe Boyd of Riverview top
a strong 26-car field. Wildwood’s Wayne Anderson was the runner-up in that
one with Jesse Dutilly, Scot Walters and “No Brake” Jake Perkins completing
the top five. All but Walters have indicated they will be in the field this
Saturday night.
Travis Cope of Weeki Wachee is the defending Bright House series champion, but
was not in the field at DeSoto. Cope will, however, be racing this week and
is the hottest SLM driver at New Smyrna having topped the points for the
recent Super Late Model Triple Crown. Cope won both the Red Eye 100 and Pete
Orr Memorial in January, then finished second to Kyle Benjamin in the Bruce
Gowland Memorial race that also ended the action for the World Series of
Asphalt Racing in February.
Former Bright House champions David Rogers and Rich Clouser will be in the
field this week. Others expected are George Gorham, Jr., Anthony Sergi,
Daniel Webster, Tim Russell, Anthony Cataldi, T. J. Duke, Daniel Keene, Jr.,
Chris Fontaine, Doug Elliott and Michael Atwell and several more.
The E-Modifieds will also be in action this week and defending track champion
Jarrett Korpi will be going for two in a row after his victory on opening
night. David Russell, the 2013 Mini Stock track champ, will also be going for
two in a row in that highly-competitive class. The Sportsman cars will make
their initial 2014 appearance Saturday night while the Strictly Stocks will be
in action as well.
Pit gates will open Saturday afternoon at 1:30 pm with division practice from
3-6:05 pm. Grandstand gates open at 6 pm with Super Late Model qualifying at
6:15 pm. Racing begins at 7:30 pm starting with a 25-lap feature for the
Sportsman cars, Mini Stocks for 25 laps, the 100-lap Bright House SLM race, 25
laps for the E-Modifieds and the Strictly Stocks capping the night off with
their 20-lap feature event. General Admission is $20 for adults and $18 for
seniors (65+) and military with valid ID. Kids 11 and under get in free.

Looks like a good night, definitely considering heading out!

Add…Matt Montineri, Jason Boyd and Kevin Dicks. Will try to update as I talk to people and after practice tonight. Hope to see you here!

Better bring some WD-40 to oil up the rough edges on Jason Boyd… he hasn’t driven in awhile as far as I know… Haven’t seen Kevin Dicks in a long time also…

Add Brad May, Michael Lira and Stephen Nasse.


I’m going to try and make it out to NSS as I’m going to be in Deland with not much to do but sit around…maybe I can bring my little nephew out with me. What’s the age limit in the pits now, Kim?


There is no age limit we just have to have a minor release form signed at the gate (you can sign). Also kids in the pits are full price. Hope you guys make it out!

Add #12 David Green and #64 (I believe Shelnut will be driving)
