This week’s event  
We return to action this Saturday at Florence Speedway as we host our last Fan Appreciation Night of the season! September 28th, we give some back to the fans who make this all possible. We offer a complete racing program for only $10 and as the highlight of the evening, at intermission, we bring the cars and drivers to the infield then let the fans come down as well. They can meet their favorite drivers, get autographs, and see the cars up close. The drivers get in on the action as well with many having autograph cards made specially for the event and also have other things to give away. Because of the extra activities, we do start 30 minutes earlier than normal with hot laps starting at 5:30 and racing at 6:30. It really is an event you don’t want to miss! On the racing side of things, we will have complete programs for our Late Model, Slicker Graphics Modified, Phoenix Comfort Systems Crate, G&G Express Sport Mod, and Hornet divisions!

Division sponsors for 2019 announced  
We are pleased to announce that Slicker Graphics has returned as the title sponsor for our Modified division here at Florence Speedway. The Slicker Graphics Modifieds are one of our top divisions and produces some of the best racing at the track. The matchup with the division and Slicker Graphics is a natural one as many of the cars that compete in the division weekly are Slicker Graphics customers. Slicker Graphics is a proud member of the racing community and a sponsor of many of the cars you see on the track every week. They are a local based company that specializes in providing first-class motorsports wraps at an affordable price as well as commercial services to businesses and individuals across the tristate region. Don’t forget that whether it’s at the racetrack, at home, or when you are simply talking about race wraps – “The Slicker the Better!”For more info on Slicker Graphics check out their website at www.theslickerthebetter.com, on Facebook and Twitter @slickergraphics.  
We are also happy to announce that Phonix Comfort Systems has stepped up to become the title sponsor for our Crate division.

Last, but not least, G&G Express has come on board and has done so in a big way. G&G Express will be the title sponsor for our newest division, the Sport Mods. The G&G Express Sport Mods are similar to our regular Slicker Graphics Modified division cars but with rules in place to help keep the cost down. In addition to being the title sponsor, G&G Express, in conjunction with another speedway sponsor, L&M Performance, have decided to raise the stakes in the championship points battle. In addition to the money and prizes they would normally receive, the 2019 G&G Express Sport Mod track champion will also receive a free Badfast modified chassis! To be eligible, a driver does have to compete in all G&G Express Sport Mod events at the speedway in 2019.   
G&G Express is a full service transportation and logistics company that can handle all your shipping needs. Established in 2008, they specialize in flatbed loads.

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 2019 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, Slicker Graphics Modifieds, Phoenix Comfort Systems Crates and G&G Express Sport Mods 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 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 March 3oth.  
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.  
Host Hotel for 2019 Season Announced!  
We are excited to announce that Florence Speedway has upgraded to the Hilton! The Hilton Cincinnati Airport is now the Official Host Hotel of Florence Speedway and the 37th Annual Sunoco North/South 100 presented by Lucas Oil. The hotel will be offering a reduced rate for Florence Speedway customers for the entire season. The Hilton Cincinnati Airport, is conveniently located 15 minutes away from the track at the Turfway Exit(182) off of I-75/71 and is situated close to multiple restaurants, shopping, and a short drive from the casinos and the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport.
