In Need of a Race Track

I know that this might sound funny to some, but has anybody heard of a good track to go to around the Tampa, Florida area that has weekly racing? I have looked and looked but to no avail. I am having withdrawls not being able to see racing at its best. Being away from home really puts a damper on your racing, and being able to watch your favorite driver run his heart out. So if anyone can help I would be greatful. Thanks.

 

 

 

P.S. C.E. if you are going to race this weekend in Houston, Good Luck and go kick some a**, remember we are cheering for you always. Miss you bunches.

There are plenty of tracks within a couple hours of the bay area. Of Course East Bay Raceway Park is the closest just down Hwy 41 in Gibsonton. BTW the backdrop at East Bay is not a dump its a Gypsum Pile from the Phosfate plant across the street.

 

There is also

Sunshine Dragway - St Pete

Auburndale Speedway

Desoto Speedway _ Bradenton

Desoto Dragway - Bradenton

USA International Speedway - lakeland - Special Events only

Charlotte County Motorsport Park - Punta Gorda

Ocala Speedway

Citrus County Speedway - Inverness

Bronson Motor Speedway - Bronson

 

All of these track put on a pretty good show, just depends on if you like Drags, Dirt or Asphalt racing.

 

Hope this helps

Don't forget Sunshine speedway in Clearwater 1/4 Mile semi banked asphalt. They used to run figure eights too. I could sit at my moms and listen to the cars racing. :ph34r::ph34r:

 

 

I have checked into the Sunshine Speedway and the only one with that name is closed. But sounded like a fun track.

Sunshine Speedway did close about 3 years ago, it was one of the finest short tracks in Florida. I worked at Sunshine for over 12 years. It feature 7 divisions of racing with 3 classes of figure 8 racing, 240 avg cars a night.

 

As for Bronson Motor Speedway, it must have been a long time since going there. Mike Cope bought the place about 5 years ago and totally remodeled it with new asphalt, a figure 8 track and retaining walls. Nice race track to visit.
