Opening night draw good crowd and great racing!
(March,th 2016) The 2016 season is finally underway at Volusia Speedway Park as mother nature decided to play nice and racing resumed at the world's fastest half mile.
The night saw close finishes, a few tempers, and even a small power outage in turn one, but overall another great night of racing action.
Starting off the night were the Daytona Sportswear Modifieds as Garret Stewart picked up where he left off in 2015 taking his Elite Chassis #67 to victory lane once again after a forgettable speedweeks in February.
The Allen Plumbing Hobby Stocks saw Trevor Gamble make it two wins in two nights on a new motor as he was the class of the field leading nearly flag to flag. 2015 Donnie Ashford who missed the first part of last year did not have a good night as he would spin in his heat race, once in the feature and get caught racing incident ripping the nose off the #66 machine.
The newly Sponsored Advanced Medical Laboratories Late Model division victory went to a dominate Mark Whitener as he would lead flag to flag from the pole ridding the rim in turns three and four. Ivedent Lloyd Jr., made his usual appearance in the David Clegg #07 and would come home second followed by the XR1 Rocket Chassis #58 of Austin Kirkpatrick.
Mini Stock action went to Todd Haught as he was in a different zip code from the drop of the green lapping nearly the entire field in his Action Automotive #1AR.
Rounding out the night was the Integrity Painting V8 Thunderstocks and just like the past two years it was another close finish on the final lap. Race long leader David Showers Jr. would find issues on the handling coming to the white flag on his #118 allowing former Late Model champion Stanton Mills to get under him in turn one. After that the rest is history as Mills would use a power move coming to the checkered flag and take home his first win in nearly two years removed from racing competition.
VSP returns next week as the Eagle Jet Top Gun Sprint Car Series heads into town along with the Advanced Medical Laboratories Limited Late Models, Integrity Painting V8 Thunderstocks and Gladiator Divisions. Pit and Drive thru gates open at 4:00pm with the main gate opening at 5:00pm. Racing will start at 7:30pm! We hope to see you all there!
