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.

13.629 seconds just ahead of the 13.656 lap of Jon Guy and Jesse Dutilly’s lap of 13.685. …

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…
