Tire samples from six competitors taken during two of the first three nights of the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing conformed to the benchmark, according to New Smyrna Speedway officials. The lab used by New Smyrna Speedway officials is the same used by the top racing organizations in the country, including NASCAR, World of Outlaws and Champion Racing Association (CRA).
Samples were taken from the top three finishers in Saturday’s Super Late Model event and Sunday’s Florida Modified event. Samples from all six racers were found to conform to the benchmark standards as supplied by Hoosier Racing Tire to the lab.
Additional samples are in route to the lab for results from Tuesday’s racing. Samples were taken from Pro Late Model and Florida Modified competitors. Those results will be announced accordingly. More samples will be taken again during the week.
In Saturday’s Super Late Model feature, Jesse Love took the checkered flag for his first career victory in a Super Late Model, with Derek Griffith finishing second and Brad May finishing third.
Travis Eddy scored his third consecutive win in the Florida Modifieds on Sunday, with Wayne Parker finishing second and Jerry Symons rounding out the podium.
Racing continues on Wednesday, February 12 at the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing, which will take place every night at New Smyrna until Saturday, February 15.
