Rubbin’, Racin’ and More April 9th at Florence Motor Speedway

Timmonsville SC (Sunday, April 3, 2011) – This past Saturday, April 2nd Florence Motor Speedway opened the 2011 racing season.  Taking home the win in the Late Model Stock car feature was former champion Michael Elliott with an impressive flag-to-flag victory.  While Elliott had the field covered, the competition was “Rubbin’ and Racin’”.  A number of cautions for the related “Rubbin’ and Racin’” activities finally concluded with Justin Shorter finishing second, Adam Jackson third (in his first late model experience at FMS), Raymond Polk fourth (also a first for him at FMS) and “Racing Expert” Rudy Branham holding on to the top five reward.  It was a very exciting experience to say the least.  Michael Tucker won the 4 Cylinder Stock feature in a photo finish with Randy Freeze.  Freeze seemed to have a car for longer runs and if he’d had one more lap he might have had the win in his favor.  The rest of the “Rubbin’ and Racin’” behind the first two were Emery Herring in third, Kevin Jackson fourth and Todd Chappell fifth.

You can expect more excitement on April 9th as the stage is set for round two at the Florence Motor Speedway racing complex where you can see 4/10 asphalt racing and 1/5 dirt kart racing for one low price.

General Admission: Adults (13 and up) $10.00 Children (8 to 12 years) $5.00 Children (7 and under) FREE.  Special Events: $12 and up and Group discounts for 25 or more fans.  These ticket prices are for all qualifying races and five (5) feature races at the asphalt track and plus the action of the FMS Kart track.  Racing programs begin at 7 pm.
