Super Late Model stars of Central Florida and beyond will head to Showtime Speedway this weekend for the second round of the Pinellas Park, Florida facility’s Triple Crown, with $10,000 on the line.
The second of three Triple Crown races at the Florida bullring will pay $10,000 to the winner, continuing the mini-series of big-money races for the track. The race will set the stage for the final leg of the Triple Crown, scheduled for March 6 and also paying $10,000 to win.
Michael Goddard won the first leg of the Triple Crown in January, holding off Stephen Nasse for the victory. Nasse was the runner-up once again when Showtime hosted Florida Fest later in the month, with Steve Dorer scoring the win in the 150-lap Super Late Model feature that day.
Both Triple Crown Race No. 1 and Florida Fest saw more than 20 Super Late Models battle on the Showtime Speedway quarter-mile. Another strong car count will be expected this weekend with a five-digit payday once again on the line.
Super Late Models won’t be the only cars in action Saturday at Showtime. The Dave Steele Memorial World Championship for Non-Wing Sprint Cars is also on tap, along with feature racing for Street Stocks in the second round of their own Triple Crown series.
Race fans unable to attend this weekend’s racing will be able to watch live on Speed51.TV with a monthly or yearly subscription. Click here to watch Saturday’s Super Late Model racing live from Showtime Speedway.
