Two Big Races. One Epic Event.
The Biggest Weekend in Florence Speedway History!
Thursday August 11th
Friday-Saturday August 12th-13th
The biggest weekend in Florence Speedway history is coming on August 11th, 12th, and 13th! After storms forced the cancellation of June 4th’s 30th Annual Ralph Latham Memorial, speedway officials announced that the event would be rescheduled. With limited availability on the Lucas Oil Late Model Series schedule, the best option was to reschedule the race and make it part of our biggest event, The Sunoco Race Fuels North/South 100. Now, a true three day event, the races will pay a combined $80,000 to win and $4,200 to start! This will truly be a can’t miss weekend.

Reserved seats are selling quickly. Sales for North/South 100 tickets was already at a record pace before the event changes. This week sales have only increased, so we definitely recommend you get your tickets as soon as possible to make sure you have a seat for the biggest race of the year!
