First Look at Entries for the World Series at New Smyrna

With less than 30 days until the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing kicks off at New Smyrna Speedway, entries have been flying in for all divisions from across the country and as far north as Canada.

 

Headlining the initial entry list are the impressive number of Tour-type Modifieds that are making their way south for the event. NASCAR Cup Series sophomore driver Ryan Preece is once again returning to his roots, driving the No. 6 for Eddie and Connie Partridge. Gershow Motorsports is going all out once again with lead driver 'Showtime' Jimmy Blewett spearheading the operation along with J.R. Bertuccio, and a third car with a driver yet to be announced.

 

Blewett will not be the only New Jersey driver in attendance this coming February, with Wall Stadium pilots Eddie McCarthy, Adam LaCicero, and Teddy Cranmer all entered.

 

A further contingent of New Yorkers are headed down headed up by Long Islanders Eric Goodale and Dave Sapienza, while the Catalano family will make their way down from Upstate.

 

The northern crew currently consists of Massachusetts drivers Jeff Gallup and Brett Meservey, 2019 Modified Racing Series champion Mike Willis Jr. from New Hampshire, along with Canadian Paul Townsend.

 

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's own 'Big Money', Matt Hirschman is making the trip down as well, looking for a second Tour-type Modified World Series title. Finally, home state star Jeremy Gerstner returns to New Smyrna, this year with PSR Racing.

 

In the Super Late Model ranks the locals of Brad May, David Rogers, Daniel Dye, and Jett Noland are hoping to hold their own against an onslaught of northern invaders.

 

Derek Griffith, who made an appearance at the Red Eye 50/50 just a week ago will again make the long trek down from New Hampshire, also looking to back up his 2019 Orange Blossom 100 victory. While Justin Mondeik will travel down from the great state of Wisconsin.

 

The Southeast will be represented by both Georgia’s Jake Garcia and Alabama’s Augie Grill. Grill has also entered his Pro Late Model.

 

Gilford, Ontario’s own Dario Capirchio has entered a Pro Late Model as well as Appleton, Wisconsin’s Peter McVey. They will be joined by New Smyrna Speedway regulars David Weaver and Chuck Tuck.

 

Local division entries are also filing in. Current entry lists for all divisions can be viewed below.
