SPEEDWEEKS 2008 @ New Smyrna Speedway

    After having a real good meeting with New Smyrna Speedway General Manager Terry Roberts, we are yet another few steps closer to having everything in alignment.
    All pre-registered Drivers and Vintage Car owners will receive a free grandstand pass for the evenings race program, highlighted by the “Richie Evans Memorial 100” for the Nascar Tour-type Modifieds. We will also be introducing our attending drivers to the fans during pre-race activities, and a chance to meet your favorites and collect some autographs and pictures.
    Vintage Car owners will also get some track time to get a few laps on the high-banked, and recently repaved ˝ mile speedway. There will be a special parking area for these cars, and you will not have to reload between the reunion site and the speedway surface. Due to the lack of push-trucks, I’m sorry to say that this portion will be limited to self-starting vehicles only. These participants will also be introduced to the fans, along with the history behind these machines. I guarantee that there will be a wide variety of racing vehicles from the past.
    The concession stands will be opened early to accommodate our reunion guests with food and drinks available. They will also be opening the grandstand gates earlier than normal, so that our group will be able to attend the qualifying sessions for that evening’s races.
    Make sure to bring your autograph books, cameras, diecast collectibles, scrapbooks, T-shirts, or anything else you’d like to have these heroes of our sport sign for you.
    This event will be on Friday, February 15th, 2008 at the New Smyrna Speedway, located on the corner of Hwy. 44 and County Rd. 415 in Samsula, Florida. The show will be from 12:00 Noon until 5:00 PM. Hauler parking will begin at 9:00 AM, with the racing program starting at 7:00 PM.
    Please visit our web-site at to pre-register, check the latest roster, and please sign our guest book while you’re there. I’d love to hear the feedback from all interested parties about our project. This is a first of its kind event in this area, and we hope to make it an annual affair.
    Hope to see you all here to join in on the fun and excitement that this promises to bring.
