7:20 p.m. – Opening Ceremonies

7:30 p.m. – Racing Begins (Super DIRTcar Series & DIRTcar Late Models)

 

Who to Watch For: In his first race of the season, defending Super DIRTcar Series champion Matt Sheppard will look to pick up where he left off in 2017.  Last year’s DIRTcar Nationals Big-Block Modified champion Brett Hearn will also be a favorite due to his past success at Volusia.  A sleeper to keep an eye on will be youngster Max McLaughlin, who had a strong run at Volusia in 2017.

 

Title Fight: Tonight’s race is not a Super DIRTcar Series points-counting event.

 

The Track: Volusia Speedway Park is high-banked, half-mile dirt oval located in Barberville, Florida.

 

Weather: Cloudy and cool in the 60’s.

 

Next Series Race: Tonight’s race is the first of four straight nights of racing for the Super DIRTcar Series at the DIRTcar Nationals.  They will return Friday night for the second night.
