WINTER HAVEN, Fla. — As tradition has it, motorsports fans from coast to coast will soon be flocking to the Sunshine State ready to elude the abrasive winter chill in exchange for a full month of racing at a variety of ovals across the peninsula.
Auburndale Speedway, centrally located between Tampa and Orlando, will join in on the winter action, ready to host its highly-anticipated Winter Showdown on February 6-10.
In total, seven different asphalt divisions will be taking to the Auburndale short track, all of which anchored with the 602 Tour Type Modifieds and the Tour/SK Type Open Modifieds that will headline the week-long Winter Showdown agenda.
The 602 Modifieds, battling for $500-to-win in each of their respective programs, will compete on all three of the aforementioned evenings with the Tour/SK Type Open Modifieds competing for $2,000-to-win paydays on Friday and Saturday, only.
A true must-see for any short track enthusiast, the Tour Type Modifieds have never competed at Auburndale Speedway, giving fans the opportunity to witness a new piece of Florida history.
In addition to the modified divisions, Legends/Bandoleros (highlighted with double programs on Wednesday and Thursday), Mighty TQ Midgets (chasing a $5,000 total purse), USAC Eastern Midgets, the National Compact Tour and the infamous Crown Vics, will also join in on the Winter Showdown.
The event will be broadcast live by SPEED SPORT.tv.
