Horsepower Happenings Speedweeks 411 - Week 2, Friday

Updated: Feb 15



Sterling Heights, MI - With all of his continued success around the national Dirt Late Model racing scene over the years, it seemed odd that one major Florida-Georgia Speedweeks venue Jimmy Owens never had a victory at was Volusia Speedway Park. But on Thursday night at the DIRTcar Nationals presented by Bozard Ford, Owens finally added the track to his “conquered” list, as well as the first gator trophy to his collection.


Thursday's USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car event from Bubba Raceway Park has been cancelled due to persistent rain that fell just prior to hot laps. Winter Dirt Games XI resumes with complete racing programs both Friday, February 14 and Saturday, February 15. Pits open each night at 4pm Eastern, the grandstands open at 5pm, the drivers meeting begins at 6pm with cars getting on track at 6:30pm.


The final segment of the 2020 Winternationals kicked off with three divisions of winged race cars. A field of 53 360 Sprints gathered at the Clay by the Bay for the first of three nights of racing action. Mark Smith drove from the front of the field to take home the convincing victory Thursday night during the Winternationals King of the 360s event from East Bay Raceway Park.
