Castrol® FloRacing Night in America Announces Schedule Changes
411 Motor Speedway Moves to Oct. 12; Farmer City Raceway Added Sept. 21
AUSTIN, Texas (May 26, 2021) — The Castrol® FloRacing Night in America miniseries has announced a schedule change as well as a schedule addition.
The season opener at 411 Motor Speedway (Seymour, Tenn.), which was rained out on March 25 and rescheduled for September 23 has been moved to October 12. The move comes to avoid a scheduling conflict. The night’s program is highlighted by a $20,000-to-win feature for the Castrol® FloRacing Night in America Super Late Models.
Additionally, Farmer City (Ill.) Raceway joins the schedule with a $10,000-to-win program on Tuesday, September 21. With no suitable reschedule dates available for the recent rainout at Iowa’s Marshalltown Speedway, the event was added at the Illinois oval to fill the gap.
“It’s been a challenging year weatherwise for pretty much all dirt racing tours, and we’ve been no exception. We’ve hosted four events thus far, and I think we are ironically up to half-a-dozen schedule adjustments already,” said series general manager, Ben Shelton. “Our goal is to do everything possible to make sure we complete 10 events in this inaugural season.
“I want to thank Mitch McCarter and his staff at 411 Motor Speedway for being so accommodating on our reschedules. I also want to thank Lance Spieker at Farmer City Raceway for adding us on September 21. We’re truly grateful to have so many awesome promoters, tracks, drivers, fans, and sponsors supporting our miniseries.”
With four events in the books in 2021, there have been four different winners. Jonathan Davenport, Devin Moran, Kyle Larson, and Bobby Pierce have all made trips to Victory Lane with Davenport currently residing atop the series’ standings.
Castrol® FloRacing Night in America now turns its attention to Florence Speedway (Union, Ky.), where the series will compete in a $10,000-to-win program on Wednesday, June 2. Super Late Models will battle for a $10,000 top prize, while the American Modifieds Series will contest a $1,500-to-win program.
General admission for ages 18-and-up is $30, while general admission for ages 13-17 is $20 with children (ages 12-and-under) free. Pit admission is $40.
