Volusia Speedway Park presents Holiday Convention Classic this Weekend
Barberville, FL (December 8, 2009) In just a few days, Volusia Speedway Park will host the Holiday Convention Classic with Sprint Cars, Mini Sprints, Modifieds, Late Models and Sportsman. Plus for the kids, nightly visits with that dear old man "Santa Claus".
"We are very excited about this weekend," said General Manager Tonya Moschell. "Not only will fans see some great racing but also meet Kenny Schrader who will be joining us and Santa Claus. Santa will be handing out candy to the kids and Kenny will delight the fans with some great dirt track modified racing."
"We have been off now for quite awhile and it will be great for all of us to get back into action this weekend. Fans can go to the PRI Show in Orlando during the day and come and join us at night for some great racing."
On Friday night, December 11th, we will have the Top Gun Sprint Car Series, Florida Mini Sprints and the DIRTcar Open Wheel Modifieds presented by Gator's Dockside and Gator's Bar-B-Q & Wings.
If you have never seen the Top Gun Sprint Cars in action, you are definitely in for a treat. These guys race hard and race for the win and always bring a great group of cars to Volusia Speedway Park. And with $1,000 to win on the line, they will definitely come out to play.
The Florida Mini Sprints are always fun to watch and put on a fantastic show. And if that is not enough, the DIRTcar Open Wheel Modifieds will be in action and these guys race hard and you never know who will be in Victory Lane.
On Friday night, NASCAR star and a fan favorite Ken Schrader will be at Volusia Speedway Park with his #9 Dirt Modified. Schrader, who recently raced at North Florida Speedway, showed his dirt driving skills and went home with the trophy for the night. But Volusia has got some great modified racers and they will definitely give Schrader a run for his money on Friday.
On Saturday, December 12th, the Florida Late Models will be in action along with the UMP DIRTcar Sportsman. The Florida Late Models will race for $2,500 to win with the UMP DIRTcar Sportsman going for $1,000 to win.
