2009 WORLD SERIES OF ASPHALT STOCK CAR RACING

      For more than 40 years, New Smyrna Speedway has played host to the Annual World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing. Featuring the top names in short track racing from around the U.S. and Canada, the yearly event marks the beginning of the new season for many race teams.
   This event is the only time that Floridians get to witness the stars of the NASCAR Tour-Type Modifieds and 'SK' Modifieds racing around the high banked half mile. The oldest division in NASCAR, the Tour-Type Modifieds have featured some of the most famous names in racing including Geoff & Brett Bodine, Richie Evans, Steve Park, Tony Stewart, Kyle Busch, Jimmy Spencer, Ted Christopher and many many more.
   Richie Evans coined the phrase, "if you can win at New Smyrna Speedway... you can win anywhere in the U.S." This nine-night event culminates each year with the running of the Richie Evans Memorial 100 on the final Friday night of competition and the Pete Orr Memorial 100 for the Super Late Models on the following night.
