Attention All Super Late Model Car Owners & Drivers

There is no Super Late Model racing on the schedule of any asphalt track in the Central Florida area other than at Citrus County Speedway for this coming Saturday, March 18th.

Do you want to race? Come out to Citrus County Speedway. We’ll make it worthwhile. We’ve got this race scheduled as a 50 lap feature, but if we can get 18 or more Super Late Models to come we’ll boast the laps to 75 and increase the purse commensurately.

We’re providing the track and the money as our part so now it’s up to you. Why not come join us.

There should be some very good cars in this one. And when you factor in a good purse, the nicest pit area in Florida, and no mandatory race fuel purchase, no mandatory tire purchase. They still offer the best race fuel on the market ( highest motor octane of any 110) at the same price or less than other tracks, but don’t want to get the mandatory purchase thing started.
Citrus County Speedway is still the place to race.Looking forward to a big night.

Inquiring minds wanted to know. . . . .

what is the payout for the race if it is run for 50 laps and there are less than 18 cars as compare to 75 laps with 18+ cars.

The answer is now readily available on the Citrus County Speedway official website: Find “Class Payout” on the left side, click on it and it will take you to all the class payouts. Find Super Late Models and voila you’ll see the complete payouts for 50 laps or 75 laps.

It will be $1600 to win for 50 laps with less than 18 cars and $2000 to win for 75 laps if there are 18+ cars. The track will be ready, the money is guaranteed. The breakdown through the field is fair. It now rests in your hands as the competitors. We hope you decide to join us.


Wait, what? Isn’t “octane” an effective measurement of temperature that a given gasoline will explode at? In other words, a reasonable measurement/guess of compression levels are possible before pre-ignition occurs?

Is not 110, um, 110? And how is “motor octane” different? Thought all them octanes referred to what was happening in the motor.

Perhaps everyone but me knows the answer to this one, but at the very least it will be a great way to promote your product.

Gasolines, including racing gasolines, are rated by three different methods. Research, Motor, and R+M. You’ve no doubt noticed that the gasoline at your local station says 93 R+M/2. The Research octane method is a test that reflects what gasoline is subjected to in a low speed, low compression, low load environment. The Motor octane test is more in line with what racing engines would see, high compression, high RPM. So for racing purposes, the Motor Octane is the most important number to pay attention to. And that’s a standard used by the major race fuel manufacturers.
Street gasolines are rated by using the “advertised” octane which is the R ( research ) value and the M (motor ) value, adding the two values together, and dividing by 2. Thus 93 R+M/2.
Racing gasoline for the most part uses the same “advertised” octane rating as pump gasoline. It gives the racer a way to compare the octane rating of pump gas to the octane rating of race gas. For example, Renegade Pro 110 tests a little over 108 Motor Octane and 113 Research octane. Divide by 2 and you get approx. 110. Other brands of 110 are as low as 106 Motor Octane. And since the prices are the same, you might as well go with the brand that gives you the most for your money.
The best comparison for race gas is always the Motor Octane rating of the fuel you need, because the Motor Octane number is the only important one for performance and racing applications. All of the Motor Octane numbers are available on each manufacturers web site or in their brochures.

I notice another track following the lead of Citrus County and advertising that there is no mandatory fuel or tire purchase for their race either. Citrus County Speedway might have started a trend.


Actually, I now recall the whole “research” & “motor” thing.

Kind of like the “gross” vs “net” horsepower deal of about the same time.

I used to pump Amoco “white” (unleaded) high test when it was “research” rated.

Of course the feds hadn’t gotten involved to tell the industry that their numbers were all “wrong” at that point.

While we are being all technical and such, a motor powers the air compressor in the shop. An internal combustion ENGINE powers a car. Lol

So here’s a question for renegade

So using the same formula what is the octane rating on non ethanol pump gas at the boat marina?

You can buy Ethanol Free 90 at many gas stations and marinas around Florida. The Motor Octane of Ethanol Free gasoline would depend on which brand.

There’s a very impressive field of Super Late Models assembling at Citrus County Speedway tonight. Should be a heck of a show.

Ethanol free fuel is additionally available at Harris Oil in Mount Dora, located approximately at highways 441 & 46.
