Symons of New Smyrna Beach, two-time Brighthouse Series champion Tim Russell
of Longwood, veteran campaigner and former track champion Rich Clouser of

Several drivers just have to start their respective feature races Saturday
night to claim point championships. Donny Williams (Sportsman), Jarrett Korpi
(E-Modified), Shannon Kelly (Super Stock) and Jimmy “Spaceman” Barron
(Strictly Stock) will take home titles just by showing up this week.
In the Pro Late Model class, Australian rookie sensation Will Carroll just has
to have a decent night to claim the championship after this week’s 50-lap run
as he has a reasonably comfortable 25 point advantage over second place Ricky
Anderson. The Mini Stock class is another story though as Pat Wells has only
a six point edge over former champion David Russell going into action this
week. Wells is hoping to claim his first track championship.

(Pro Late Models only from 4-5 pm). Grandstand gates open at 6 pm with
