Horsepower Happenings Speedweeks 411 - Week 1, Wednesday



Sterling Heights, MI (Wednesday, February 5, 2020) - Night number two of the Florida Speedweeks is now in the books. With racing across the state at both East Bay Raceway and Volusia Speedway Park, it can be a tough job to keep track of everything - and the weeks are just going to get busier.


The 49th DIRTcar Nationals kicked off Tuesday night at Volusia Speedway Park with Michael Long collecting the opening night win. Over the next week, the DIRTcar UMP Modifieds will race in at least 10 total Features while chasing the 2020 DIRTcar Nationals Big Gator Trophy.


Brandon Sheppard returned to victory lane at East Bay Raceway Park on Tuesday night during the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series-sanctioned, Wrisco Industries Winternationals – presented by Lucas Oil. This win was Sheppard’s fourth career win at the “Clay by the Bay” and he becomes the third different winner in three series events so far in 2020.
