300x250-smyrna-ws-2017Notes:  Defending Super Late Model champion Ty Majeski will kick off his 2017 racing season at the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing.  There has not been a repeat Super Late Model champion in the last 15 years.

 

Harrison Burton, Majeski’s toughest competition one year ago, will return as well looking to win round two.

 

A strong field of Tour-type Modified drivers is also expected led by defending division champion Ryan Preece. Others, including “Big Money” Matt Hirschman, NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour winners Justin Bonsignore and Timmy Solomito, and “Showtime” Jimmy Blewett, will be looking to put an end to Preece’s dominance. The Tour-type Modifieds will once again have five scheduled nights of racing in Florida.

 

Pro Late Models will compete in eight races, including double features on Saturday, February 18. Defending champion Daniel Keene, Jr. is not currently entered, but we expect to see him in either a Super or Pro Late Model during the event. There has also not been a repeat champion in the PLM division in it’s 10-year history. Currently, drivers from nine different states/provinces are represented including Florida, North Carolina, Georgia, Indiana, Wisconsin, Vermont, Ohio and Ontario.

 

The Florida Modifieds, Sportsman and Trucks will also compete throughout the week for Speedweeks glory.
