The time has come once again for short track fans and race teams to mark their calendars for two of the most anticipated weeks of the 2020 season. As it has for more than half a century, New Smyrna Speedway will open its gates this February for nine straight nights of asphalt racing featuring multiple divisions and teams from all over the United States and Canada.
The 54th World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing will take place from February 7-15 as Florida Speedweeks returns to its traditional spot in the middle of the month. Several divisions under the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series (NWAAS) banner will run over multiple nights including: Tour-type Modifieds, Super Late Models, Pro Late Models, Florida Modifieds and other local divisions.
The ARCA Menards Series will also return for a one-off appearance in 2020.
Following an open practice day on Thursday, February 6 for all NWAAS divisions, the action starts on Friday, February 7 with a five-division night featuring the Super Late Models, Pro Late Models, Florida Modifieds, Sportsman, and Bombers.
Night number two on Saturday, February 8 will see the Sportsman hit the track for a 50-lap special. Super Late Models, Pro Late Models, and Bombers will also join the card.
Sunday night will feature 35-lap races for the Super Late Models, Pro Late Models, and the Florida Modifieds.
Monday, February 10 will perhaps be the most anticipated night of the World Series. After being ran on Sunday for several years, Monday night will now feature the ARCA Menards Series East season opener. The Tour-type Modifieds will also take the track for the first time during Florida Speedweeks with a 50-lap main event.
Tuesday, February 11 marks the midway point for the 2018 World Series with the Florida Modifieds putting on a 75-lap race along with a 50-lap Super Late Model event. The Pro Late Models and Tour-type Modifieds complete the lineup with 35-lap sprint races.
Night six on Wednesday, February 12 features the Tour-type Modifieds with their first big event of the week with the John Blewett III Memorial 76. Florida Modifieds, Pro and Super Late Models will also be in action.
A quartet of sprint races are lined up for Thursday, February 13 featuring the Tour Mods, Florida Mods, Super and Pro Late Models.
Two of the biggest World Series races take place on Friday, February 14 with the Pro Late Model Zack Donatti Memorial 100 and the Tour-type Modified Richie Evans Memorial 100 which will conclude the week for both classes. The Sportsman will also return to the event lineup, while the Pro Trucks and Ground Pounders will make their first appearances of the week.
The curtain closes on the World Series Saturday, February 15 with Super Late Model 100, along with the final events for the Florida Modifieds, Sportsman, Super Stocks, and Pro Trucks.
