Orlando SpeedWorld has been undergoing a restructuring and will re-open on August 3 with theTBARA Sprint Car program rained out in June as the featured attraction. Bob Watson, formerly of Lee USA Speedway in New Hampshire, has taken over the reins as General Manager and will be bringing a number of changes to the SpeedWorld facility in order to present a “family friendly” show for the fans.
A firm schedule has not been set as of yet, but plans are to move all racing activity to Saturday nights. Watson says that in a conference call this week with himself, track owner Ozzy Moya and New Smyrna Speedway owner Robert Hart, Hart gave his blessing to moving the SpeedWorld show to Saturday night. Schedules will be set so that no conflicts will exist between the scheduling for the two tracks. SpeedWorld will hold two open practice sessions on Wednesday evenings, July 24th and 31st before returning to racing action on August 3. On the schedule along with the Sprint Cars will be the Legend Cars, Super Stocks, Strictly Stocks and Bandoleros. Further details will be made available shortly.
