One of the biggest Super Late Model races of the year in the state of Florida will be held this Saturday, October 3 at Citrus County Speedway. The Full Throttle 100 will bring a strong field of drivers to Inverness, Florida to chase a big pay day. We get you ready for the big race with “10 Things to Know About the Full Throttle 100.”
1 – $10,000 is the winner’s share of the Super Late Model race at Citrus County Speedway (FL). Several of the biggest names in the country are making their way to Florida for this event.
2 – Jesse Dutilly won last year’s running of the Full Throttle 100. Wayne Anderson won the second running of the race in 2018 and Daniel Keene, Jr. went to victory lane in the inaugural race in 2017.
3 – The 0.375 mile track opened in 1955 and was dirt up until 1960. It has been paved ever since. The first ever known touring series event was held at the track in 1988 when Dick Anderson won the USAR race. Prior to the late 80’s most tracks ran weekly and had full fields all around Florida.
4 – Wayne Anderson has won in just about every series ever run at Citrus County including FASCAR,, Florida Pro, FASCAR Modifieds and the FUPS tour. Simple put, he has a lot of laps at the track.
5 – One year ago, Stephen Nasse led one lap and finished second at the Full Throttle 100 to Jesse Dutilly. He’s coming back to chase the win and the trophy.
6 – Bubba Pollard heads to Citrus County Speedway in search of the big payday. Pollard has never raced at the Florida track, but he has won 10 times in his first career visit to race tracks.
7 – The Anthony show has Anthony Cataldi leading Anthony Sergi for the track Super Late Model standings.
8 – The pre-race entry list has 30 names on it, and in Florida you never know who will show up to race. There could be a few last minute entires.
9 – The race will be a 100-lap sprint for the Super Late Models. Additionally, Pure Stocks, Mini Stocks, and Outlaw Street Stocks will be in action.
10 – Keep an eye on drivers like Nick Neri who finished third a year ago and second each of the first two years. Also watch Trey Bayne who had a quiet fifth-place finish last year. With this much money on the line, there is bound to be some shuffling up front.
