New Smyrna Speedway 5/3/14


New Smyrna Speedway moves into the month of May as the very competitive Mini
Stock class will run their first 50-lap race of the season under the NASCAR
Whelan All-American Series banner Saturday night.
Also in action will be the Pro Late Models, E-Modifieds, Sportsman cars and
Strictly Stocks.
Four Mini Stock feature races have produced four different winners so far this
year with defending track champion David Russell, Pat Wells and Ted Vulpius
taking victories with Brooksville visitor James Ellis tuning up for this
week’s $600 to win event by taking the checkered flag first last week. All
four are expected in the field this week along with a host of challengers that
include the likes of Jamie Dixson, Reid Christiensen, Jason Reynolds, Tyler
Simpson, Levi Hammond and many others.
The Pro Late Model racers have also seen a different winner each week they
have been on track with Tyler Audie, Cody Blair and Michael Lira all visiting
Gibson Truck World victory lane. Jarrett Korpi has had the upper hand in the
E-Modified winning all but one race so far this year although his challengers
seem to be “catching up” just a bit more each week. The Sportsman will run
just their third feature of the year Saturday night as both Chris Brannon and
Brandon Morris have won the first pair of events.
Pit gates open Saturday afternoon at 3 pm followed by division practice from
4-6:10 pm. Grandstand gates open at 6 pm with qualifying at 6:20 pm for the
Mini Stocks. Racing begins promptly at 7:30 pm. Adult admission is just $15
with all Seniors (65+) and military with ID getting in for $13. All kids aged
11 and under are admitted free of charge. A reminder that the TBARA Outlaw
Winged Sprint Cars return to the high banks of New Smyrna Speedway on
Saturday, May 10. Make your plans to be there.

There were 0 strictly stocks last Saturday…22 super stocks.Why not reward them by adding them to the schedule and up the purse like they deserve ?

Hasn’t anyone been to VSP to see the show that the equivalent thunders stocks put on with excellent pay outs and full fields ???

Couldn’t agree more. Hell it pays $100 to race a 4 cylinder at VSP.

because they don’t pay the strictly stocks or give them points they don’t care if they don’t show up .
