ASCS Sprints are Coming To Ocala
by BJ Cavin
The most asked about and anticipated event so far this season is finally about to happen at Ocala Speedway as the American Sprint Car Series hits the clay in beautiful downtown Zuber! The ASCS 360 sprints will be our guests this Friday, April 11th, for a very special event. Also joining the ASCS sprints will be the V8 Thunder Stocks, the Mini Stocks, and the wild and wacky Gladiators!
During the two practices held in February, 360 sprint cars were turning lightning fast laps on Ocala Speedway's 3/8ths mile clay tri-oval to the amazement of spectators and other racers alike. Unofficial times recorded at those practices were significantly faster than the times similar sprint cars used to set on the asphalt at Ocala in previous seasons, so anticipation of the dirt sprints' arrival in Ocala has been quite high. Special event pricing will be in effect, and fans are urged to get there early for the best seats!
The V8 Thunder Stock division provided quite a lot of excitement in it's own right the first time that class of racers were turned loose at Ocala Speedway. The Thunder Stocks are made up of quite a few former asphalt racers who are attempting to get the hang of racing on clay, and the racing is filled with thrills and excitement as a result.
In addition to all of the other excitement this Friday, it is also Duggan Brothers Equipment Night at Ocala Speedway with the employees of Duggan Brothers Equipment enjoying the night of racing as our special guests. Duggan Brothers Equipment is the proud provider of our tractor and accessories that are used to maintain the racing surface at Ocala Speedway.
