Major changes to the 32nd Annual Sunoco North/South 100

2014 will see a major format change to the 32nd Annual Sunoco Race Fuels North/South 100 presented by Lucas Oil. After growing the North/South to be one of the biggest events in the country, Florence Speedway officials have decided to move to a fan friendly format that will make the race a truly unique event. At the 2014 North/South 100, we will be eliminating qualifying and moving to a random draw/passing points system to line up the weekend's races. After using the passing points system weekly and for mid-sized races for many years successfully, we feel that now is the perfect time to use this format at our biggest event. How the event will work is, after drawing a number to determine starting order, drivers will compete in two sets of heat races on Friday. Their finishing order, combined with bonus points for passing cars, will be used to line up Saturday's 3 B Mains and Feature. Also on Saturday, we will be adding three new races to the event. We will be adding two dashes to determine the North/South 100's pole sitter and outside pole sitter. We will also be adding a 30 lap $2,500 Non-Qualifiers race for those who do not transfer to the feature. It is a win-win for the fans as they get to see two complete sets of heats on Friday, while keeping the same amount of racing laps on Saturday. The drivers benefit as well as almost $12,000 has been added to the weekend purse. These changes, plus earlier start times on Saturday, should also help alleviate some of the issues with late finishes that have affected this event in the past. To see complete event info, including the format, times, and purses, check out the North/South 100 info page HERE.

New Division to compete at Florence Speedway in 2014

We are pleased to announce that we will be adding a new division to our weekly events next season. We will be running Crate Late Models as a support division in 2014. The idea behind the division is to be a lower cost alternative to our normal Late Model division. It can give less experienced drivers a more economical way to get Late Model driving and set up experience before moving up to the top division. This division will be designed with cost factors in mind. It will typically be competing for $500 to win purses and the rules will eliminate a few of the higher cost items that full Late Models use. The complete rules should be out by mid-January with most of the car construction rules matching our existing Late Model rules, but a few of the changes that will be in place are: 602/604 sealed crate motors only, no adjustable shocks, and no dry sump oiling systems. There will be other changes as well, but we want to get as much info out to prospective drivers at this time as possible.
