Mike Smith Wins The Charity Truckers 200

by BJ & Cindy Cavin

ORLANDO, FL-  Racers, race fans, and a lengthy list of unselfish sponsors and contributors, came together for the fifth time this past weekend for the Annual Charity Truckers 200 at Orlando Speedworld, all in an effort to raise funds to assist families in need due to serious illness.  Three families were selected from a long list of worthy recipients, each with a family member whose medical expenses have created financial hardships.

Promoter and race organizer Rick Bristol, made it a point all weekend to emphasize that although the event was about racing, the real reason for the effort was to help those in need, and many of the race’s finishers heeded those words and donated their winnings back to the cause. In all a grand total of $22,343.00 was raised, which translates to $7,446.66 going to each family from this year’s event. (more…)

Auburndale Concludes 2010 Points Races

By Dave Westerman


Kyle Hall Gets first feature win of 2011

Auburndale Speedway concluded the 2010 regular season in style Saturday night with some great racing as three of the four regular classes saw first-time winners. A light rain shower delayed qualifying by about a half-hour but the night proceeded without any more precipitation and a bright full moon in the sky.

Even though several “regulars” like point champion Jake Perkins and runner-up Gerald White, Jr. failed to show, 22 Legend Cars still filled the pits with St. Cloud’s Brandon Thomson setting quick time at 15.046 seconds.

Kory Abbott’s 15.172 was second fast while Lynn Wiles and Georgia invaders Sean Rayhall and Mason Massey were fourth and fifth quick.

A re-draw among the top six qualifiers found Rayhall on the pole for the 50-lap feature race with sixth fastest timer Dakota Baggette on the outside pole. Quick qualifier Thomson started fourth.

The two Peach State youngsters, Rayhall and Massey quickly jumped out front at the start. Abbott passed Massey for second on lap three only to see that pass negated by the first caution flag that appeared for Danielle Stratton who spun on the backstretch. (more…)
