It was a chilly night for race fans at Auburndale Speedway Saturday but some good, hot racing kept most of them from thinking just how cold it was in the grandstands.
The Super Late Models were the feature attraction and, although just eleven showed up to do battle, battle they did in a race that had several twists and turns.
Palmetto’s Nick Neri led a very close field in time trials with a lap of
13.629 seconds just ahead of the 13.656 lap of Jon Guy and Jesse Dutilly’s lap of 13.685. …
The lessons learned on Friday night paid big dividends for Tennessee racer Lucas Lee, who outpaced the 24-car field in the 75-lap Modified A-Main to close off week one of the 43rd annual Winternationals.
Lee had struggled to start the week, but went back to basics before the Friday night event. The result was a second place run to Kyle Bronson and some valuable lessons from the 30-lap main. Regretfully, the early week struggles took their toll as Lee ended up missing the top six in points who were locked into…
For the second consecutive night, a home state racer stood in Victory Lane after the Modified main event at East Bay Raceway Park’s 43rd annual Winternationals.
Fast qualifier Kyle Bronson, who also earned the honor on opening night, backed up his achievement with a stellar victory in the 30-lap A main. The road to victory was far from an easy one.
For the second night, Bronson drew an inversion of four, putting the fast qualifiers in the second row for their heat races. In Bronson’s case, it meant he would barely qualify…

All in all it would be a late night for everyone. Hot laps were delayed for nearly…
L.J. GRIMM TOPS MODIFIEDS
It was quite a night of racing Saturday at Auburndale Speedway as eight classes ran features with the action producing two first-time winners. A fine crowd was on hand under perfect weather conditions.
The night began with a bit of irony. Earlier in the afternoon it was announced that former NASCAR/ARCA star James Hylton had lost his life in a highway crash while returning home from Friday’s ARCA event at Talladega Superspeedway. For many veterans at the speedway it was a sad day for sure as many of…
FULTON NY – April 27 2018 – Finally, DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds all across New York thawed out, loaded up, and made the tow to Fulton Speedway. It took 50 laps to decide the first Sportsman Modified Central Region series race of 2018 and it was worth the long winter break. After trading the lead several times, Shane Pecore in the no. 0 took the lead on lap 23 and never looked back. Despite multiple cautions and restarts, Pecore managed to stay ahead hard charges by Matt Janczuk and Kevin Root.
It was just “one of those nights” at Auburndale Speedway Saturday night as anything that could go wrong…. well… it did.
The entire show got off to a late start as a pair of brief showers dampened the track during hot laps. Despite the delay, action still got going only 15 minutes late.
The big race of the night was the WPCV 97.5 Country Radio Earth Day 125 “Super 8” Series race for the Super Late Models. Due to the rain, qualifying was held during the middle of the heat races for…
