by Jane Smith
Samsula, Fla. (December 28, 2004) The first race of the new year at New Smyrna Speedway will be January 8th and the River Fest 300, formerly known as the Red Eye 100. Not only will the Super Lates go for 100 laps but also on the program will be the Late Models, Open Wheel Modifieds, Sportsman, Super Stock, Mini Stock and Strictly Stock plus FASCAR'S newest touring series the FASCAR Pro Trucks and Quick Kids.
January 8th will mark the debut for the Pro Trucks and Quick Kids before the Pro Trucks go to Lakeland's USA International and SpeedFest 2005. All Quick Kids drivers are asked to call the speedway 386-427-4129 and let us know you are coming 0n the 8th. This way we will know how many trucks are ready for the new 2005 season and let our fans know what to expect on the 8th.
Last year's winner of the Red Eye 100, now the River Fest 300, was B.J. McLeod of Wachulla. B.J. has spent more time rebuilding his hometown after Hurricane Charley devastated it than racing in the latter part of 2004. Hopefully B.J. will have another good beginning in 2005 and take home another win.
Pro Trucks and Quick Kids are asked to call New Smyrna Speedway and let us know if you are coming. Pit gates will open at 2 p.m. on Saturday, January 8th with racing at 7:30 p.m.
