2016 Race to Recovery Season Championships this Saturday
Florence Speedway is proud to present the 2016 Race To Recovery Season Championships with Renew Ministries and their partnering sponsors on October 8th. Our area has been recently clouded by the sadness of addiction and the overwhelming danger to our families. This epidemic knows no boundaries of race or economic status. We all have been touched by this in some way. Florence Speedway is honored to stand with these sponsors to raise awareness and offer some help and hope to those needing it. Please bring your families and stand with us as we raise awareness for the possibility of recovery and love.
With the fall season around the corner, if you have a gently used winter coat of any size please bring it the night of the race. Renew Ministries will have barrels set up to collect them. They will be giving those coats to families in this area who will so desperately need them very soon. In return you will receive a coupon for a free concession item. (some restrictions will apply see coupon for details).
On the Racing side of things, we will be hosting the last points race of the season. This double points event will determine the track champions in all of our divsions. All divisions will be racing for an increased purse with the Late Models racing for $2,000 to win, the Modifieds racing for $800, the Crates racing for $600 to win, the Phoenix Comfort Systems Pure Stocks racing for $400 to win, and the Hornets racing for $250 to win.

Sunoco Race Fuels Heat Race Challenge
We at Florence Speedway are excited to announce that the Sunoco Race Fuels Heat Race challenge is returning for the 2016 season. We and Sunoco Race Fuels have teamed up for a program to reward drivers who race here weekly. The Sunoco Race Fuels Heat Race Challenge will reward drivers who run well in their heat races and run Sunoco Race Fuel products. The twist to this program is that where, in most cases, drivers in different divisions can not compete against each other, in the Sunoco Race Fuels Heat Race Challenge, the eligible drivers will be competing head to head! That’s right, the Late Models, Modifieds, Crates and Phoenix Comfort Systems Pure Stocks are all competing for the same prize. At the end of the season, the top point earner will gain a $500 prize from Sunoco, and everyone in the top 10 will receive cash awards. For more details check out the program info page on our website. At the track, we currently offer Sunoco HCR+ 114 Octane, Supreme 112 Octane, 260 GT Plus 104 Octane Unleaded Crate Fuel, and Methanol for sale by the gallon. We also have access to drums of each of the above and all of Sunoco’s fuels. If anyone is interested in purchasing a drum, just ask at our fuel sales area. Purchase of any of the above qualifies you for the Sunoco Heat Race challenge bonuses. The Sunoco Heat Race challenge begins on April 2nd.
Transponders now mandatory
In 2015, Florence Speedway installed a transponder scoring system at the track. Transponders are devices attached to the cars that allow for electronic scoring of the races. This allows for quicker turnarounds in cautions and more accurate scoring of the races. Transponders are already in use at many tracks and by many series across the country and are becoming the standard method of scoring in auto racing. We have transponders available for rent or for sale at the track at our new registration building. Transponders are now mandatory in all divisions.
