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.

Majeski Dominates New Smyrna
for Third Victory and Championship

SLM NSS World Series Ty Majeski victory lane 2-20-16

On the final night of racing at New Smyrna Speedway’s World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing, Ty Majeski put in a flawless performance to take the victory in the 100-lap Super Late Model feature as well as the division championship.

Majeski set fast-time in qualifying and had great track position to start off the feature after drawing a two for the invert.  He quickly took the lead from Derek Thorn and never looked back.

The Seymour, Wisconsin driver was untouchable as he led by over a straightaway for much of the night.

“I was just riding around there on that long green flag run,” Majeski said on the FansChoice.TV broadcast.  “This thing was just flawless tonight.”

Majeski said that the key to scoring three victories during Speedweeks was mostly just having luck on his side.

“The invert kept us in the front a lot of time,” he said.  “That really help us at Speedweeks.  That was definitely the big key to our successes this week.”

Brad May, Stephen Nasse, Christian Eckes and Riley Herbst completed the top five on a night that saw a lot of equipment torn up in a Talladega-esque crash on a restart with 13 laps to go.

Dalton Armstrong, Josh Collins, Dave Garbo, Derek Kraus, Vinnie Miller, Tanner Gray and more were involved with almost all cars involved being unable to continue.

Majeski was out front on the restart, much like he was almost all week long.

“Speedweeks has a reputation of tearing some stuff up, and we were really fortunate that we had a car that qualified pretty well,” he said.

Harrison Burton appeared to be the only car that might have had a little something for Majeski, but he had to come down pit road under caution to pull a tear-off from his windshield.

After Burton was out of the picture, May moved into second to score his best finish of the week.  While it wasn’t a win, May was about as happy as one could be.

“It feels amazing,” May said.  “The cars we are running against are so great and they came down here with cars to run Speedweeks.  We had this car built to run the 2001 Speedweeks and we’ve been racing it off and on ever since.”

Thorn Holds Off Anderson
for Pro Late Model Finale Victory

The ninth and final night of the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at New Smyrna Speedway (FL) kicked off with two 35-lap races featuring the Florida Modifieds and the Pro Late Models, which was controlled by California’s Derek Thorn from start to finish.

It was the second win of the 2016 World Series for Thorn, but the first since the second night of racing.  His first victory, exactly one week ago, left Thorn eager to come up with another before the week was up.

“We’ve been evading the top three it seems like. We’ve had really good cars and really good runs. Been outside the top three a lot. Really proud of these guys, they keep fighting, they never give up, everybody at Jett Motorsports,” Thorn said in his interview on FansChoice.TV. “This one was a lot sweeter than the first one, being the last day of Speedweeks.”

This second win was far from a cakewalk for Thorn who had to battle a hard-charging Cole Anderson and his own racecar.

“The power steering went out before the race started so I was a little concerned there. But he made me work for it, one of those things where you race a kid like that, has a lot of speed, you can’t make any mistakes and put together 35 perfect laps.”

The big prize for the nine nights of racing, the Pro Late Model championship, went to Florida’s Daniel Keene Jr. who was able to stay out of trouble for all seven of the Pro Late Model races and collected a win along the way en route to the title.

“This is the first time we actually stayed and ran the full Speedweeks. This is what we aimed to do this year whenever we came; we fiddled with this car and we were able to take it to the championship,” Keene said at the end of the race.

Raphael Lessard came home third with Keene finishing fourth, and Carter Stokes completing the top five.

The Florida Modifieds also concluded their championship on night nine with Cody Stickler clinching the championship with an initial second-place finish, but was later promoted to his fourth win of the week after Josh Todd was disqualified for a post-race technical infraction with his shock absorbers.

As for Stickler, he was trying to absorb the accomplishment of the championship at night’s end.

“I don’t think it’s sunk in to be honest, but I think it will in a couple of hours,” Stickler said.

Jerry Symons was promoted to second in the Florida Modifed race results, with Camron Ray, Travis Eddy, and Kevyn Terry rounding the top five.

Preece Dominates at New Smyrna
for Second Richie Evans Memorial Win


For the second straight year, Ryan Preece found himself celebrating in New Smyrna Speedway’s victory lane after dominating the Richie Evans Memorial 100 to close out the Tour-Type Modified portion of the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing.

However, for a little while in the closing stages on Friday night, it started to seem as though Preece might lose the lead to Eric Goodale, similar to how Ron Silk scored the win earlier in the week.

Preece came off of turn four with just a handful of laps remaining and decided to go to the inside of the lapped Jeremy Gerstner machine.  He and Gerstner almost made contact, and that allowed Goodale to close in to just a few car lengths behind.

“I almost thought we were going to lose it there with that lapped car,” Preece said on the FansChoice.TV broadcast.

Goodale tried to close in on Preece after receiving the assist from Gerstner, but couldn’t close enough and had to settle for second.  JR Bertuccio, Jimmy Zacharias and Justin Bonsignore rounded out the top five.

“We had very similar cars there at the end,” Goodale said.  “I would have really loved to have won this race.  I gave it everything I had there at the end of those final 15 laps, but I just came up a little bit short there tonight.”

The 2013 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion skipped the first practice session on Friday afternoon to practice for Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Daytona International Speedway.  While he was at the big track, Preece’s TS Haulers team owned by Eddie and Connie Partridge continued to work to get the car ready.

“It was a tick tight there at the end, but it just had massive amounts of front end drive,” said Preece.  “My crew put in a lot of hard work when I wasn’t here today and we just had a flawless car.”

The win on Friday night, the second of the week for Preece, clinched him his second straight Tour-Type Modified championship at New Smyrna Speedway.

This is the second victory in a row for Preece in the Richie Evans Memorial 100, who said this one is just as special as the first time he won the race named in memory of arguably the greatest Modified driver in history.

“It’s pretty special,” he said.  “I didn’t grow up in that era.  I wasn’t fortunate enough to race with guys like him.  But I’m racing with my era and winning in it and hopefully I can make a name for myself so 30 years down the road from now kids that were my age can say they were looking up to me and wish they could have raced with me.”

A Snowbird Triumphs in Pro Late Model at New Smyrna

PLM NSS World Series Raphael Lessard climbout 2-19-16

The Pro Late Models went back to sprint racing on Friday night following their 100-lap feature Thursday. Friday night’s 35-lap event was a special night for young Canadian Raphael Lessard, who earned his first career victory in a Pro Late Model.

The 14-year-old from St-Joseph de Beauce, Quebec stormed past Ryan Miles on the backstretch to take the lead on lap 19. Lessard managed to hold Miles off on a lap-20 restart from the inside to seal the victory.

“The car was good on the inside so we decided to start inside,” Lessard said on the FansChoice.TV broadcast.  “I think it was a good decision.”

The victory for Lessard comes after a very rough beginning to Speedweeks after losing his original car in multiple incidents in the first couple of nights. After his team put the crate engine into the car originally piloted by Todd Gilliland to start Speedweeks, Lessard saw a steady improvement which ended in the victory.

“It’s awesome,” Lessard said.  “We had a good car all week, we had a couple of incidents, but I can’t thank my team enough because they work very hard to prepare the car and it’s awesome.”

Cole Anderson charged late to finish second while Daniel Keene Jr., Derek Thorn, and Ryan Miles rounded out the top five.

The Florida Modifieds had a familiar face in victory lane Friday night, as Cody Stickler took home his third win of the 2016 World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing. Stickler led wire-to-wire after taking the lead on the first lap from the outside pole position from Alan Bruns.

Travis Eddy moved up from his sixth starting position to finish second while Alan Bruns, Josh Todd, and Camron Ray completed the top five.

Both divisions will decide their championships Saturday night as they run 35-lap features to lead off the night in advance of the 100-lap Super Late Model feature.

Burton ‘Moves’ Majeski for Second Win at New Smyrna WS


Harrison Burton and Ty Majeski went head-to-head for the second consecutive night at New Smyrna Speedway (FL) on Friday night.  On the first night Majeski got the better of Burton, but on this night Burton got the better of Majeski in another classic duel.  The two drivers swapped paint during the closing laps before Burton pulled away to win his second Super Late Model race at the 50th Annual World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing.

“Well… I honestly just had to move him out of the way,” Burton admitted live on the FansChoice.TV broadcast.  “Ty is such a great race car driver that it’s hard to beat him otherwise.  We had a restart there and he kind of did the same to me, so it wasn’t dirty by any means.  I think it was just hard racing and it was a lot of fun.”

When asked about the comment, Majeski took the high road saying that he and his Toby Nuttleman-led No. 91 team simply have to work harder to beat Burton.

“We’ve got to get our car a little bit better and hopefully we won’t be in that position for the 100 lapper,” said Majeski.  “I’m not taking anything away from my guys or anything, they’ve worked so hard all week giving me really, really good race cars.  We just need to get a little bit better to beat the 12.”

Florida native Stephen Nasse, defending champion Zane Smith and Chad Finley completed the top-five Friday night.

At the age of 15, Burton chalked up his win as the most exciting win he’s ever experienced during his young career.

“I’ve never really had a last few laps pass or anything like that, so it feels so good.”

Both of Burton’s wins during Florida Speedweeks have come behind the wheel of a backup car that was prepared after he suffered heavy damage to the primary car Saturday night.

“I think I expected to be a tenth slower in the first place, but we were like two tenths faster than the primary car,” he said.  “You can’t count us out ever, we never quit no matter what and we keep fighting.  I just can’t thank my guys enough.”

Smith Scores “Unreal” Win in First PLM Race of Speedweeks

Last year nobody knew who Zane Smith was when he arrived at New Smyrna Speedway (FL) for the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing.  Everyone knew who he was at the end of the week after he won the Super Late Model championship.  That made him an instant favorite for the victory when he and his team decided to unload the Pro Late Model for Thursday night’s 100-lap show.

At the end of Thursday’s race, Smith showed that he was the favorite for good reason by out-battling Daniel Keene Jr. to take the win.

Smith and Keene swapped the lead a couple times throughout the 100-lap event, the longest all week for the Pro Late Models.  Keene took the lead from Smith early in the race, but then Smith fought back a few laps later to take the lead back.

Near the midway point of the race, Keene came charging back to the take the lead once again from Smith, but Smith never let Keene out of his sights.

With about 10 laps remaining, Smith tried to make his move for the win on Keene.  Smith dove to bottom of Keene’s white and black No. 5K machine, but a spin by a back-marker brought out the caution and negated Smith’s pass for the lead.

On the restart Smith got a great jump and drew even with Keene heading into turn one.  The two drivers ran door-to-door for about two laps before Smith cleared Keene to take the lead and eventually the win, his first of Speedweeks.

“It’s unreal,” Smith said on the FansChoice.TV broadcast.  “I did not think I was going to get him on that restart because the bottom is never good here.  That was one hell of a race.  I mean honestly that was probably the best race I’ve (ever been in).”

While to some it appeared as though Smith may have fired too early on the final restart, Keene bowed out in defeat to the 16-year-old Smith.

“He timed it pretty good,” said Keene.  “He may have had a little bit of an advantage on firing first, but we went down into one and two equal.  It wasn’t like he had us cleared.  We were side-by-side for a couple laps there with eight to go.  I’m going to give it to him.  He beat us.”

Even after taking the victory, Smith said he was still unsure how he managed to get by the veteran Keene on the restart.

“I really don’t know,” said Smith.  “We were even coming to the start/finish line.  I didn’t use him up down here or anything.  I just had good drive off and my spotter said clear and I was like ‘Oh, alright.’  So then I tried to save my stuff.  Then the two behind me started battling and it was ours from then on.”

Smith was able to drive away from Keene over the final five laps as Keene became locked in a battle for second with former NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Mike Skinner.  However, Smith had no idea what his gap was to Keene in the final few laps.

“I was just looking forward to the white flag,” Smith said.  “I was too nervous to look in the mirror.”

Preece Dominates for First New Smyrna Win of Speedweeks

Coming into the 2016 edition of Speedweeks at New Smyrna the overwhelming favorite had to be 2013 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Ryan Preece, who dominated the Tour-type Modified portion of the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing in 2015 and came in this season with a brand new racecar.

But Preece has come up short in the first two Modified events this week, getting beat on a late restart by Ron Silk on Tuesday night and only being able to march back for another runner-up finish after spinning early in Wednesday’s 76 lap event.

On Thursday night, Preece reasserted his dominance, storming past Silk on lap eight to take the lead for good in the 35 lap feature. Preece was cautious in the second half of the race, but was happy as ever when it was all over.

“It’s been a lot of work; we’ve just been fine tuning the setup and really learning this car.  I have a pretty good handle on it now.  If anything we got tight there.  I was actually a little nervous around lap 20 or 25 because it wasn’t freeing up.” Preece said after the race on  “I’m really excited to get to victory lane and I’m happy for Eddie and Connie Patridge and TS Haulers, my owners.  It’s just awesome.”

Preece has a busy day on Friday as he heads north during the day to Daytona International Speedway to practice his Johnny Davis Motorsports NASCAR Xfinity Series car in advance of Saturday’s 300-mile race.

Despite him missing practice for Friday night’s Richie Evan’s Memorial 100, Preece has no problem leaving the car as is.

“I think we have a really good car for the 100-lapper tomorrow.  I wish we didn’t have to change tires because we have a really good hold on this thing.”

Justin Bonsignore finished second to Preece on Thursday and believes he has something for Preece and the rest of the field Friday.

“I think we have a better package for the longer distance races, where maybe Ryan is not as strong in the longer ones, but you never know.  Hopefully he gets stuck at Xfinity practice all day and we can race, but no hopefully he gets back in time so we can battle it out.”

Friday’s Richie Evans Memorial will be the final outing for the Tour-type Modifieds in 2016 at the World Series before the teams return home to prepare for the upcoming championship seasons.

Majeski & Burton Battle Like Veterans at New Smyrna WS

Two young racers competed like veterans on Wednesday night at New Smyrna Speedway (FL).  21-year-old Ty Majeski and 15-year-old Harrison Burton put on a show for fans watching the 35-lap Super Late Model feature at the 50th annual World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing.  In the end, it was Majeski standing in victory lane for the second time after a fierce battle with Burton.

“A really clean battle first of all,” Majeski told powered by JEGS.  “I respect the heck out of him as a race car driver. He could have went up and doored me any time he wanted to, but he raced me clean.  I appreciate that.”

Burton, who stood in victory lane Wednesday night, raced on the inside groove of the race track for the entirety of the battle with Majeski to his outside.  The two raced close for a number of laps before Burton eventually got loose off of turn two with a handful of laps remaining.

“It was a lot of fun,” Burton said of the battle.  “Me and Ty had a pretty clean race and it’s a lot of fun to race guys like that because it doesn’t happen as often as us Super Late Model drivers would like it to.  I really enjoyed it and I had a lot of fun racing with Ty.  He’s a really tough guy to beat.  That shows how you have to keep evolving when you’re racing these guys.  Last night we were the class of the field and tonight he was.”

Throughout the World Series, Burton has stressed how important it is to evolve each day.  On Wednesday night, he admitted that a runner-up finish will only make his team work harder for the final three nights of racing.

“Everything can change and people can get better as the day goes on,” Burton explained.  “Ty obviously had it pretty well tonight and we just have to work a little bit harder to catch up to him.”

Friday’s winner Steve Wallace, California native Derek Thorn and defending champion Zane Smith completed the top-five.

Despite standing in victory lane for the second time during the 50th annual World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing, Majeski himself recognized that he still has work to do for the rest of the week.

“The car was too free tonight and too tight last night.  We made the right change, but we went a little bit too far so hopefully we’ll be better for tomorrow.”

Goodale Makes Crew Feel Good with Blewett Memorial Win

Modifieds New Smyrna World Series Eric Goodale victory lane 2-17-16

In 2015 Eric Goodale scored his first victory in the John Blewett III Memorial 76 at New Smyrna Speedway.  One year later it was Goodale holding off a hard-charging Ryan Preece to take the win once again.

For Goodale, a win in the Blewett Memorial race is as special as they come, but the Riverhead, New York native said this year’s win means just a little more.

“This win is a little extra special to me because of my crew members that were close to John,” said Goodale.  “I know I made them feel good with this one tonight.  It makes me feel good to have them feel good.  This is definitely one that we mark on our calendar that we definitely want to go out there and win.”

Goodale led multiple times throughout the 76-lap affair.  He showed his strength early in the race before fading just a bit.  Goodale then took the lead back on a restart with about 26 laps remaining.

After that he had to hold off Preece who came charging back to the front after spinning off turn two with about 20 laps to go.

Goodale and Preece got a chance to battle with each other when a caution came out with about six laps remaining.  Goodale got the jump on Preece and drove away from last year’s World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing to take the win.

Justin Bonsignore, Jimmy Zacharias and Chuck Hossfeld completed the top five.

“I saw him coming in my mirror,” Goodale said.  “I knew I needed to get a good restart there at the end and restarts aren’t my specialty.  I had the car tonight to hold him off.  I saw him back there and didn’t want him to get to my bumper.  I tried to keep three car lengths between us.  Luckily he didn’t have anything more than he had, but I think I had a little something left in the tank if I needed it.”

Wednesday night’s race was the second straight night that Preece has finished in the runner-up position.  In Tuesday night’s 50-lap race Preece said he was just too loose.  On Wednesday night it was the exact opposite for Preece.

“I was too tight and couldn’t roll the center and when you can’t roll the center it just takes so much more to get up off the corner,” said Preece.

While Preece may have been too tight to try to really battle for the win, he had to charge back through the field quickly after his spin on the backstretch that resulted after contact with another car.

“I don’t know what happened above me,” Preece said.  “The guy I think was going to spin out and I kind of saved him I guess.  That’s racing.  Sometimes stuff like that happens.  Unfortunately, it hurt us and I had to use up that tire to get back there.”

After rain washed out Monday night’s racing action, the Tour-type Modifieds now have just two races remaining, including Friday night’s 100-lap Richie Evans Memorial.  Preece won the race last year, but Goodale said he loves his chances for this year.

“If we have a car like this on Friday night, then it shouldn’t even be a contest,” said Goodale.  “We should have a car that can win for sure.  We’ve been fast all week.  We broke in the opening lap last night, but I’m expecting big things from this car.  This thing handles like a dream.”

Race fans can watch all of Wednesday night’s racing action on-demand on FansChoice.TV on Thursday.

Rain Washes Out Monday’s New Smyrna Feature Action

NEW SMYRNA WORLD SERIES rain night 4 monday 21516

Mother Nature had been quite kind to New Smyrna Speedway so far during the 2016 World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing, but apparently Monday evening something rubbed her the wrong way.

Rain showers, which bucked the trend of seasonable temperatures and sunny skies throughout the first three nights of World Series action, washed away Monday’s feature racing action.  A drenching rain came seven laps into the night’s first feature, a 35-lapper for the Florida Modified division, which forced officials to pull the plug on the rest of the events.

Monday’s features, including the Florida Modified race, will not be rescheduled.  The only change to the schedule resulting from Monday’s rain out is that the Tour-Type Modifieds, who were to make their 2016 World Series debut Monday night, will now have a 50-lap feature Tuesday instead of the regularly-scheduled 35.  The Tour-Type Modifieds will start as they qualified and on the same tires on which they time trialed earlier in the day Monday.

Earlier in the day, Justin Bonsignore set fast time in qualifying for the Tour-Type Modified division.  An invert of eight will put JR Bertuccio on the pole with Tyler Rypkema on the outside when the green flag drops Tuesday on the division’s 50-lapper.

In other time trial events, Zane Smith (Tour-Type Modifieds), Cole Anderson (Pro Late Models) were quickest in their respective divisions.  The Florida Modified race was led by Tim Moore when the race was called off at lap seven Monday night. will power the NASCAR Home Tracks Race Central Live coverage of Tuesday’s Night 5 action of the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing beginning at 1:30pm ET. will air all of Tuesday’s feature racing beginning at 7:30pm ET.

Wallace Lives Up to “Kill Mode” Premonition with Smyrna Victory


Steven Wallace described himself and his JET Tools Super Late Model team as being in “kill mode” leading into the 2016 World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at New Smyrna Speedway.

Friday night, Wallace’s focus on victories paid off with a return to New Smyrna victory lane on the World Series’ opening night 35-lap feature.  On the other hand, the win did not come without flare, as hard racing, which Wallace was right in the middle of, cost other front-runners a shot at the victory throughout the event.

Wallace started fifth and worked his way to the front early on.  En route to the lead, contact was made between Wallace and New Smyrna Red Eye 100 winner Cole Anderson at the front of the field.  The contact sent Anderson into the back stretch wall.  Further contact amongst leaders put longtime New Smyrna fan-favorite David Rogers into the spin cycle later on.

All the while, Wallace was able to avoid calamity that other rivals could not and stayed out front through the second half of the race for his opening-night victory.

“It took patience man,” Wallace said after the race. “Those boys up front went wild and wrecked themselves and we had a good enough car to win the race.  It feels good.”

Ty Majeski, who finished second to Wallace, thinks the rest of the World Series will be a lot like what took place Friday night.

“It’s just kind of how these 35 lap races are,” said Majeski.  “Everyone has the mindset that they have to go right away. You have to get all the track position you can.”

Night one third-place finisher, Harrison Burton, was quick to point out the aggressive driving in the Super Late Model feature.

“Typical Speedweeks was typical Speedweeks,” said Burton.  “It was really crazy racing out there tonight, but I think everyone should maybe calm down a little bit.  The rest of Speedweeks I think everyone will calm down after what we saw tonight.”

The Super Late Model field will have another shot at a wild night, or perhaps a calmer one as Burton hopes, when the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing Night 2 kicks off at 7:30pm ET Saturday with a live video stream on and live NASCAR Home Tracks Race Central Live powered by updates throughout the day.

Keene Fires at the Right Time for Smyrna PLM Victory

NEW SMYRNA WORLD SERIES pro late model daniel keene derek thorn new smyrna night 1 21216

Daniel Keene, Jr. didn’t have the fastest Pro Late Model at New Smyrna Speedway (FL) on Friday night, but he capitalized when it mattered most.  Keene, who started on the pole, faded back before using a lap 25 restart to power by early leader Derek Thorn.  From there, the Weeki Wachee, Florida driver cruised to his first career World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing victory.

“We didn’t have the car for first-place tonight, but I knew if we could get him on that restart and get out in front in clean air that we would have the advantage,” Keene told powered by JEGS.  “The car was constantly getting tight on us and once we got in the clean air it really helped us out.”

Thorn led the majority of the first 20 circuits around the Florida half-mile and seemed to be well in control.  That was until Cole Anderson charged to the front of the field and began challenging Thorn for the top spot.

Anderson made the pass for the lead on lap 24 before unexpectedly shooting towards and pounding the outside wall.  The Anthony Campi Racing team will take Anderson’s No. 97 back to their shop in Sarasota, Florida and plan to be back at the track on Saturday night.

“Me and Thorn got together in turn three and I guess it broke the panhard bar and going into turn one it went loose,” said Anderson.  “I went right into the fence.”
 “He was slowly falling back and we were working on him on the bottom.  Finally he got loose off of two, I got a good run going into three and took the lead.  Once I got the lead, it broke right after that so it sucks, but we’ll get it back together.”

After giving up the lead to Keene on what proved to be the final restart of the race, Thorn settled for a runner-up finish.  For the California native, the key throughout the race was survival.

“It took being dirty,” Thorn said after the race.  “I don’t know what it is, but the 97 (Anderson) raced me hard; the 5 (Keene) got into us in one on the last restart there.  It was one of those things where we were stout.  The 97 got us and then he got into the wall on the front chute.  We had a great car, though.  We’re really optimistic about this week.”

Keene said after the race that he knew his only chance at victory would be to beat Thorn on the restart.  In victory lane he described it has “a whole lot of heart,” but later in the night he explained his strategy.

“It was just a matter of being with him at the same time when we fired,” Keene said.  “That last one I actually fired right as he did and was able to stay beside him going into one and two and got the better drive off the corner.”

With his win Friday night, Keene joins his father Daniel Keene, Sr. on the list of drivers to win during the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing.  He’ll look to add another win on Saturday night when the division returns to action.

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

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

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

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

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.
