2nd Florida 400 Less than a Week Away

By David Sink

Bradenton , FL , November 25, 2007 -
With less than a week away preparations continue for
the second annual Florida 400 sprint car race at the
Desoto Super Speedway in Bradenton , FL. The 2nd
annual running of this 400 lap sprint car race will
pay $12,000 to the winner plus contingency and lap
monies from a total purse of $56,000.

The Florida 400 is the only 400 lap sprint car race in
the world and the second richest pavement sprint car
event as well. In order for a driver to stake claim to
a Florida 400 victory he must battle twenty-nine other
competitors for 400 laps around the high banked 3/8
asphalt oval. He must also contend with heavy lapped
traffic the entire night as well as completing two
mandatory pit stops.

Entries continue to pour in as Thursday's opening
practice draws near. Drivers from USAC, HOSS, TBARA,
ASCS, and AVSS among others have already been
received. The entry list is headed by defending
Florida 400 champion, Dave Steele, from Tampa , FL who
also is a two-time USAC Silver Crown champion as well
as the 2005 TBARA titlist. Other notables include
8-time Little 500 champion Eric Gordon, Bill Davis,
Racing NASCAR development driver Bobby Santos III, and
ASCS Rebel Region Champion T. J. Winegardner among
others. Santos III heads to Desoto Super Speedway
fresh off of his Turkey Night sprint car win at
Irwindale , CA and is considered an early favorite.

--Advertisement--



Long distance sprint car races in the state of Florida
are nothing new. In the late 70's 500 lap sprint car
were attempted at the now defunct Golden Gate Speedway
in Tampa and at the Orlando Speed World. Then again in
'93 and '94 two more Ill fated 500 lap sprint car
races were contested at Charlotte County Motorsports
Park in Punta Gorda. These long ago events were mere
memories until the Desoto Super Speedway event was
unveiled last December with huge success.

Action gets underway Thursday Nov.29 with an afternoon
practice and qualifying the next afternoon. The
thirty-car 400 lap event is scheduled to take the
green at 8PM Sat. Dec. 1, 2007 . For more information
go to www.florida400.net or contact Jack Nowling at
(727) 527-5078 as well as the Desoto Super Speedway
(941) 748-3171 for ticket info.
