New Smyrna Speedway is a high-banked, half-mile paved oval track located just 5 miles West of New Smyrna Beach, Florida and just 10 miles South of Daytona Beach, Florida. Known by many as the “World Center of Racing”, New Smyrna Speedway has been home to some of the finest stock car racing in the entire Country now for more than 45 years.

Along with providing the best weekly racing and special events in the area, the Speedway has been highly utilized in recent years as a prime testing facility for some of the teams from the NASCAR Nationwide, Camping World Truck and Sprint Cup Series.

“If you can win at New Smyrna Speedway, you can win anywhere in the United States.” -Richie Evans

Originally operated as a dirt track when it opened in …., the Speedway was paved just six months later and has remained one of the premier pavement tracks in the Country. Over the years, some of the biggest names in racing have tried their hand at the high-banked half-mile. They include Donnie, Bobby and Davey Allison, Rusty Wallace, Mark Martin, Dick Trickle, Neil Bonnett, Harry Gant, Tony Stewart, Kyle Busch, Ryan Newman and perhaps one of the best short-track racers that ever lived, Richie Evans. This nine-time NASCAR National Champion coined the phrase, “If you can win at New Smyrna Speedway, you can win anywhere in the United States.”

As a small-town local venue, New Smyrna Speedway has been very involved in the community by holding fundraisers throughout the years. Local High School sports teams, boosters, and other charitable organizations have all benefited from these generous endeavors . In 2011, New Smyrna Speedway is taking yet another step forward in their fundraising efforts, becoming the first race track in the Country to dedicate an entire year to Breast Cancer Awareness. The campaign started by decorating the Start/Finish Line and Victory Circle with a bright pink and black checkered flag pattern instead of its traditional white and black checkered flag pattern. It has grown substantially to now include nightly collections throughout the grandstands and pit area, with 100% of the proceeds going directly to Breast Cancer Awareness.

New Smyrna Speedway is the ideal setting for any family or group of friends to enjoy an exciting, comfortable and affordable night of entertainment. Our full concession area, featuring the Checkered Flag Cafe and the Last Lap Saloon, can fulfill all your food and beverage needs. You can delight in anything from a nice hot burger and fries to an ice cold adult beverage.

Racing at New Smyrna Speedway runs weekly from mid-March through November with Special Events throughout the off-season.

RESULTS FOR 4-18

THOMAS EDGES BECKNER IN SPORTSMAN -
MAY, BRUNS & SUTORUS ALSO TAKE WINS
SATURDAY NIGHT AT NEW SMYRNA SPEEDWAY

by Dave Westerman

While several other Central Florida-area tracks "cried wolf" and canceled
their racing programs late in the week due to an unfavorable weather forecast,
New Smyrna Speedway used the "wait and see" attitude and it paid off as week
number six of the NASCAR Whelen All American Series went off without a hitch
and produced some awesome action for the nice crowd in attendance.

A brief sprinkle just after the pit gate opened at 3:30 pm was all the race
teams had to put up with and what had started off as a very hot and humid
afternoon turned out to be a very comfortable evening. Fans who arrived early
were treated to some special food and drink deals plus got to get an up close
look at a number of cars from the Volusia County Corvette Club who also took
part in the parade lap before racing began.

The Sportsman class continued to swell the pit area with cars as 22 showed
this week and were split into a pair of heat races. The first was an absolute
barn-burner as five cars crossed the finish line under a blanket with Daniel
Conlin, Jr. winning by a fender. Ron Gustafson took the checker first in heat
number two.

Twenty of the 22 cars would start the 25-lap feature as Scott Bramlett would
miss the show after breaking a clutch during the pace lap of his heat race
while R. J. Glaser hit the wall during the second heat and his car was too
damaged to repair in time for the nightcap. The field inversion placed heat
winners Conlin and Gustafson on row five for the start while Timmy Todd, Jr.
would start from the pole flanked by Derrick Wood.

Wood snatched the early advantage only to see Conlin, Austin Carr and Mike
Pletka get tangled up in turn four negating the start. Conlin retired from
the event while Carr and Pletka continued. The second start was much better
and Wood again set the early pace as the rest of the field went at it tooth
and nail behind him. The yellow flag was out on lap four when Donny Williams'
car suddenly turned right and into the wall coming off turn four. The
defending Sportsman champion's racer was badly damaged and he said he was
clueless as to why the car took a quick violent turn to the right at that part
of the track. "There is also some damage to the left rear of the car that I
must have gotten earlier in the race so maybe something broke there to cause
it... I just really don't know right now," said Williams. Second heat winner
Gustafson dropped out of the race while the field was under caution with a
broken right front ball joint.

Wood continued to set the pace on the restart but point leader Junior Beckner
was on the charge and took over the point on lap seven. Patrick Thomas, who
started the race from the seventh spot, moved into third on lap ten. One lap
later Richard Goodrich had a right front tire go down in turn two and he
brushed the wall while Sandy Lee spun trying to avoid getting involved. Lee
got his spot back in the restart line-up while Goodrich pitted for a new tire
and returned to action only to fall out of competition a few laps later.


It was now Beckner's turn to lead a few laps but he was unable to hold off a
high-flying Austin Powell who took over the lead on lap 17. Howell was
looking strong until he went for a wild spin all by himself in turn two on lap
22. Howell brought his car to the pit area with steam coming from the
overflow hose and retired from the race handing the lead back to Beckner. On
the restart, cars began getting "loose" all around the track with caution out
again on lap 23 for a spun Austin Carr in turn four and a double spin by
George Gorham, Jr. and D. J. Farr in turn two.

It turned out the problem was that the drain plug in the rear end of Carr's
machine had popped out coating the track with rear-end grease and that may
have been the reason for Howell's spin a lap earlier. The field was placed
under a red flag as track crews worked to clean up the mess that was
completely circling the entire half-mile.

That set up a fantastic green-white-checker finish with Thomas moving to the
inside of Beckner for the lead on the restart after Beckner said he missed a
shift. Thomas led the white flag lap but Beckner was not going to be denied
as he battled back on the high side only to see Thomas just nip him at the
line for the win, the second in a row for the Orlando driver. "To finish in
front of a quality field like this two times straight is unbelievable," said
Thomas. "It was a hard-fought battle, I'll tell you, and I hope the fans
enjoyed it because I sure did from where I was sitting, " joked Thomas.

Beckner was disappointed but OK with his runner-up finish as he maintained his
slim point lead while Garrison, NH driver Lee picked up his second consecutive
third place finish. Wood, driving one of the Jim Daley-owned cars out of the
Sheppard Racing Enterprises shop in Deland while his own car is being readied,
held on for a nice fourth place effort while Steve Barnes also had a great run
for fifth. Rounding out the top ten, and the only other cars still running,
were Todd, Brandon Christian, Jordan McMillon (driving his first-ever race at
New Smyrna), Farr and Mike Dahm. Rounding out the finishers (all DNF's) were Carr, Gorham, Howell, Goodrich, Ted Helmes, Pletka, Williams, Gustafson, George Dahm, and Conlin.

Anthony Sergi grabbed the early lead from his outside pole starting spot and
led the opening circuit of the 35-lap Super Late Model feature only to see the
caution out just after the opening lap was completed. David Rogers and Tyler
Scofield got together in turn two with Scofield going for a spin. Tim Sozio
became an innocent victim as he lost control trying to miss Scofield's car and
he pounded the wall, severely damaging his machine and he was done for the
night.

Sergi took over the top position on the restart but Brad May was charging hard
and took over the lead on lap three while Michael Lira also got by Sergi for
second. May began to check out until Cody Spencer spun coming off turn two on
lap eight. Spencer's car slid down the banking and backed into the inside
wall causing enough damage to eliminate him from competition.

From that point it was all green flag racing as May was the class of the field
in the Bobby Sears Racing special. Sergi re-passed Lira for second on lap 28
but could not close back in on the high-flying May who won his first career
Super Late Model feature here after scoring several wins in Pro/Limited Late
Model action over the years. It was a big night for May and his good friend

Sportsman feature winner Patrick Thomas who have been involved in racing since
they ran Quarter Midgets back in 1985. "We've been racing Stock Cars together
for around 20 years but never actually against each other," said Thomas. "I
guess that's probably a good thing, he joked, but this is the very first time
we've both won a feature on the same night so it's a pretty cool deal," he
said.

Sergi claimed the runner-up spot trailed by Lira while Scofield took fourth
ahead of Rogers, who was sporting a new black paint scheme on his car, Noah
Cornman, Spencer and Sozio. Lira picked up the $100 "hard charger" bonus put
up by Jason's Bug Ranch Volkswagen Service.

Alan Bruns of Clermont won one "for the old guys" as he led every lap of the
Modified feature, never being seriously challenged. The only slow down of the
race came on lap five as Matt Wheeler and Matt Jarrett literally "locked
horns" after they got together on the front stretch. Once the cars were
separated, both drivers continued.

Bruns ran away and hid in this one to take the checker well ahead of heat
winner James "Tank" Tucker. Jerry "The Hammer" Symons claimed third spot in
front of Wheeler and Matthew Green. rounding out the finishers were Jarrett,
Jim Higginbotham, Joe Jacalone, Talon Craft, Mike Dahm and George Dahm.
Jacalone Enterprises Car Sales of St. Augustine put up a $100 "hard charger"
award that was claimed by Symons.

Robert Donaly led every lap of the all-green-flag Bomber feature only to be
disqualified in tech for several infractions. The win was thus awarded to
second place finisher Shane Sutorus of Orlando giving him his second
consecutive victory in his Saturn station wagon. Newcomer William Barrington
was second in a Chevy Cavalier followed by the Chevy Monte Carlos of Aaron
Overman and Richard Fiore, Jr. and the Ford T-Bird of Megan Matheny. Rounding
out the finishers were Tommy Flinn, James Skinner and Jonathan Murphy.

TRAVIS COPE MAKES LATE CHARGE TO TOP
FLORIDA GOVERNOR"S CUP 200 AT NEW SMYRNA SPEEDWAY
ALLEN CRASHES AND WINS SPORTSMAN 50

Travis Cope plants a kiss on the famed Governor's Cup Trophy

Travis Cope with the Governor's Cup trophy and his race winner's trophy in victory lane

by Dave Westerman

New Smyrna Speedway had to battle Mother Nature nearly all weekend, but the
skies cleared just long enough to get in the Florida Governor's Cup 200, a
race that had more twists and turns than a good pretzel with young Travis Cope
leading just the final two laps to score what amounted to an improbable
victory as it seemed he had everything going against him at various points.
The pit area was full even on Friday night as 38 Super Late Models signed in
just to practice along with a number of support division cars.  Jeff Choquette
of West Palm Beach, driving the Adrian Carriers car out of Milan, IL, was
fastest in two of the three sessions held for the Super Lates.

Saturday dawned overcast and a bit on the drizzly side but the wet stuff held
off long enough to get several practice sessions in the books.  However, just
after 3 pm the rain became a bit harder.  From time to time it would subside
only to return as drizzle and mist.  With a rather large time-consuming show
yet to run and the forecast for more drizzle, mist and even fog, track
officials decided to cancel the Saturday race program that was to have
included a 100-lap contest for the Modifieds, 75 laps for the Mini Stocks, and
races for the Super Stocks and Strictly Stocks.  Governor's Cup qualifying was
also postponed and rescheduled for Sunday.  The Modified and Mini Stock races
will be made up in January.

Overnight rain and thundershowers led to warm and breezy conditions Sunday
morning and the sun began to pop through the clouds as race teams enjoyed a
free breakfast on the grandstand side of the track sponsored by Eagle Jet
International.

By the time the cars hit the track for practice around 11 am, temperatures
were already around 80 degrees.  During the Super Late Model hot lap session,
2009 Governor's Cup winner Tim Russell had something break on his car and he
slid hard backwards into the turn one wall.  The damage was extensive and
Russell was forced to withdraw from competition.

In qualifying for the Governor's Cup race, Stephen Nasse was the 32nd car on
the track but going late in the session on a very warm track did not bother
the young shoe from Pinellas Park as he set quick time with a lap of 17.721
seconds, just a tick of the watch faster than 14-year-old Harrison Burton of
Hendersonville, NC who tripped the clocks at 17.795.  Choquette was third
quick at 17.816 followed closely by the 17.817 lap of Bobby Good and Brad
May's 17.818.  Defending Governor's Cup champion Augie Grill of Hayden, AL was
sixth quick at 17.885 seconds.

This was an impound race and the cars were not to be touched after time
trials.  Crew members went to seven cars as they sat on pit road thus negating
their time trial efforts.  These included fast qualifier Nasse, ninth fast
qualifier Cope, Jordan Ives, Brian Campbell, George Gorham, Jr., Michael Self
and Dustin Dunn.  All were relegated to the back of the grid for the start of
the big race.  The shake-up then placed Burton on the pole position flanked by
Choquette with Good and May starting from row two.

Pre-race ceremonies featured a quintet of drivers who won the race in previous
years who were not in this year's field.  Joining the festivities were 1966
Governor's Cup winner Bobby Brack, 1970 winner Don Gregory, 1979 victor Jim
"Freight Train" Fenton, 1983 winner LeRoy Porter and Jimmy Cope, the only
driver to win a Governor's Cup event at it's original track, Golden Gate
Speedway in Tampa (1982) and at New Smyrna (2000).
Florida U. S. Congressman Bill Posey read a message from Governor Rick Scott
then proceeded to recognize all veterans sitting in the stands from two WWII
vets to those currently serving in the United States Armed Forces.  All were
designated as Grand Marshals for the event and together gave the command for
the drivers to start their engines.

Thirty-seven cars took the green flag but the first start of the race was
aborted quickly when 24th starting Dusty Cornelius pounded the turn two wall
ending his day before it began.  Rick "Fireball" Maguire also began having
trouble under caution and eventually pulled out with a faulty clutch.

The second attempt at a start went more according to plan as Choquette roared
out to an early advantage over pole-sitter Burton.  Choquette had things
pretty well in hand when the caution flew on lap eight.  The large field of
cars was creating so much turbulence that part of a billboard blew off and
landed on the back stretch approaching turn three.

On the restart, Brandon Johnson had something let go on his car and he popped
the turn one wall.  Nasse had also come in contact with another car during the
restart and pitted with significant damage to the front of his machine.  He
would not return to competition.  Daniel Keene, Jr. also pitted under the
yellow flag with what looked to be a transmission issue but his crew got him
back on track for the next restart.

As the green flew Choquette again began to put some distance on the field
while Grill was on the move taking fourth on lap 30.  Brian Finney spun off
turn two to bring out the caution on lap 34 and then immediately retired from
the event.  Grill got a great jump on the restart and zipped into second spot
a few car lengths behind Choquette.  Lap 54 saw Dustin Dunn loop his car in
turn two with Cope also getting spun onto pit road just as the yellow flag
flew.  Several cars, including Cope, pitted under this caution period to make
adjustments.

Choquette continued to hold off Grill as the next yellow flew on lap 60 for a
turn two tangle involving Anthony Cataldi, Dakotah Stephens and Derek
Griffith.  All three pitted for repairs and continued.  Shortly after taking
the green, the caution was back out again on lap 69 for a spin by David Green
who got the car pointed in the right direction and continued.

On the restart things started getting racy for the top spot as Grill really
began to pressure Choquette.  Grill made a bold move going into turn three on
lap 75 bumping Choquette and forcing him up the track as Grill took a lead
that would last only until turn two when Choquette slammed his car into
Grill's putting Grill into the wall.  Grill was done for the day while
Choquette's car had just minor damage from both altercations.  Track officials
put their foot down though and parked Choquette for unsportsmanlike conduct.
That ended the efforts of both drivers in their quest for a third Governor's
Cup win.

While all this was going on nobody was really noticing the great effort being
put in by T. J. Duke.  The young driver from Southwest Ranches had put his car
in third place before the Choquette/Grill incident and now found himself in
the lead.  Duke made the most of it as he sped out to a big advantage on the
restart.  Lap 82 saw Keene back hard into the turn one wall ending his
afternoon.  Duke continued to have a solid run and had built up another comfy
advantage before David Rogers, with something amiss with his car, spun in turn
two on lap 99.

The field took the half-way signal under caution with Duke leading Wayne
Anderson, Burton, Good, Steven Wallace, Joe Boyd, Cody Coughlin, Brad May,
Anthony Sergi and Rich Clouser.  Cope had now worked his way up to 11th spot.
Duke continued to lead only to see Green spin a second time on lap 105.  After
this spin Green retired from competition.  With still 20 laps remaining until
the "competition caution" for refueling and tire changes, Joe Boyd had his car
stall in turn two, out of fuel.  Boyd's car was pushed to pit road where his
crew dumped in a can of gas and sent him back out.

On the restart Wayne Anderson forged his way to the point bringing Steven
Wallace with him as Duke slipped back to third.  As the field to the yellow
for the break at lap 125 it was Anderson out front trailed by Wallace, Duke,
Good, Coughlin, Burton, Cope, Chris Davidson, Ray Black, Jr. and Brian
Campbell.  Rogers' car slowed as the yellow came out with he too being out of
fuel.

Anderson now began to check out on the restart as Bobby Good was now charging
hard, moving up to second spot on lap 128.  Lap 131 saw Jordan Ives into the
turn one wall after tangling with Campbell.  During the caution there were
reports that Anderson's car was leaking oil.  Anderson pulled his car on pit
road where chief tech inspector Rocky Brooks determined there was indeed oil
leaking from the machine.  Anderson's crew jacked up the car but, after a few
moments, determined the problem could not be fixed quickly and a dejected
Anderson drove his car into the pit area.  During a pre-race interview,
Anderson said matter-of-factly that if he won the Governor's Cup for a fourth
time that he would retire on the spot.  That will still be left for
speculation.

On the restart all heck broke loose off turn two.  Duke got into the back of
Rich Clouser sending Clouser into a spin.  Cope spun to miss everything and
stayed out of trouble but Ray Black, Jr. nailed Clouser's car with Joe Boyd
also slamming into the fray.  Cody Coughlin tried to slip by up high but
grazed the wall.  Clouser pitted and continued after repairs were made.  Boyd
also pitted but was not so lucky as his machine was to badly hurt to continue.

Black's car need a tow from the track ending what had been a very good run.
Coughlin pitted and his crew mad some minor repairs but his car refused to
re-fire and he too was out of the running.  Duke continued but was sent to the
back of the restart line-up for turning Clouser.  Just 16 of the 37 original
starters were still running with just over 60 laps to go as Good rocketed to a
huge lead on the restart while a resurgent Cope moved up to second place on
lap 155 but was nearly a full straight behind Good. 

The race stayed green and would run that way to the checker.  As the laps wore
down, Cope began to inch his way closer to Good.  With ten laps remaining,
Cope had closed the gap to just a few car lengths not knowing that Good's
brakes were fading.  Going into turn three on the next-to-last lap, Good drove
in a bit too hard and, with no brakes, slid high allowing Cope to assume the
point and take the white flag as the leader.  At that point, Good could only
watch as Cope drove off to the checker to get his name placed on the
Governor's Cup trophy alongside his uncle Jimmy Cope and so many other great
names in short track Late Model racing.

Cope was quick to praise his crew in victory lane for "not giving up" and
giving him a car capable of pulling off the victory late in the event.  Cope's
dad Mike is a former NASCAR Winston Racing All-Pro champion who never had much
luck in the Governor's Cup races he ran over his career and he was incredibly
impressed with his son's run to the victory.  Travis also became the first
recipient of the Governor's Cup winner's ring presented in victory lane by
Andrew Hart.  Cope's win was worth $15,000.

A dejected Bobby Good took his runner-up finish with a grain of salt saying it
was just a combination of "bad brakes and brain fade" that kept his name off
the Governor's Cup.  Harrison Burton came out on top of a crowd-pleasing
side-by-side battle with Steven Wallace to finish on the podium in third
place.  "We bumped and rubbed a little bit but Steve ran me clean and that's
all you can ask for in that kind of situation," said Burton.  "I'm really
thrilled to finish this high in a race with so many great drivers and we'll be
back for the World Series in February," he said.

Wallace was fourth while Texan Chris Davidson ran a steady, heady race to
claim fifth.  Rounding out the top ten were Canada's Alex Labbe, David Rogers,
Brian Campbell, T. J. Duke and Brad May.  Utah driver Michael Self found
himself three laps down at one point after an early green flag pit stop but
used the "lucky dog" during several cautions to get back on the lead lap and
wound up 11th ahead of Clouser, George Gorham, Jr. and Anthony Cataldi as just
14 cars were running at the finish.  Anthony Sergi had a top-ten effort going
but his engine went sour with just a few laps remaining and he was the last
car to fall by the wayside taking 15th spot.

Roger Blevins took the initial lead in the 50-lap Sportsman feature from his
outside pole starting spot only to see caution fly on lap four as Timmy Todd,
Jr. spun in turn four.  Todd Allen zoomed by Blevins for the lead on lap 11
just as another yellow flag flew when Jamie Kennedy hit the turn one wall.
With Allen out front a huge crash took place on the back stretch on lap 13.
When the dust cleared, the cars of Scott Bramlett, Michael Williams, Jr.,
Colin Allman, David Williamson, Phil Luizzo and Todd were all out of the race
with damage.  On the restart, Daniel Conlin, Jr. moved to the high side to
battle Allen for the lead and the pair tangled coming off turn two sending
Allen's car head-on into the wall.

As Allens's car was towed to the pits, a light rain began to fall.  The rain
began to get heavier and at that point it was decided to call the race
complete with the finish reverting back to the way the cars crossed the
start-finish line on the last green flag lap.  That gave Allen the victory
despite having a badly wrecked race car.

Conlin would be credited with second trailed by George Gorham, Jr., Ron
Gustafson and Blevins.  Rounding out the top ten were Aaron Williamson, Junior
Beckner, Allman, Donny Williams and Bobby Mobley.  Completing the finishing
field of 25 were Austin Howell, Patrick Thomas, David Williamson, Michael
Williams, Jr., Bramlett, Wesley Keller, Todd, Luizzo, Jason Foster, George
Alexander, Mike Dahm, Adam Soukup, Scott Garrity, Kennedy and Derrick Wood.
