Fast Facts: Fifteen drivers are currently pre-entered for this weekend’s race with a lot more expected to arrive that are not on the current entry list.  Jeff Choquette, who is not currently entered, is a two-time race winner who has had tons of success at New Smyrna Speedway this season. Two drivers who are entered are Ty Majeski and Harrison Burton, who will resume their battle that began back in February during Speedweeks.  Majeski is a perfect two-for-two in the Florida Governor’s Cup the last two seasons. The veteran in the field will be David Rogers, this year’s Super Late Model champion at New Smyrna Speedway. Florida Super Late Model dominator Jesse Dutilly is also entered for the race and will be searching for the biggest win of his career. The race will consist of 200 laps with the first three laps under caution counting during each yellow flag period. Controlled pit stops will be used so that drivers will not lose position on pit road in regards to other drivers who pit during the same caution period.
