Volusia Speedway Park (Florida) closes doors effective immediately


Recommended Posts

The following is a statement from Track Promoter Wendi Underwood about the rest of the 2016 season at Volusia Speedway Park:


To all drivers, fans and employees.


With circumstances beyond our control. VSP would like to announce with a heavy heart that we have closed the doors effective Wednesday. I want to say how thankful I am for the past 4 wonderful years. I have met so many wonderful people and have formed some lifetime friendships. I do not know what the future holds for VSP. But I wish the best for all those who have supported us thru the past 4 years.


I have so many to thank and show my sincere appreciation too. That I will do at a later date.


I will contact drivers at a later date about end of year celebrations. That is unknown at this time.


With all my love, Wendi

Weekly Racing Resumes at Volusia Speedway Park


CONCORD, N.C. - Oct. 25, 2016 - DIRTcar Racing is proud to announce Volusia Speedway Park will be resuming weekly racing in 2016. VSP Racing, LLC and DIRTcar Racing have come to an agreement to finish out the 2016 racing season.


Racing action is scheduled to resume Friday, November 18 with an open practice for all divisions, and a full racing program on Saturday, November 19 that will include Late Models, Hobby Stocks, Thunderstocks, and Gladiators.


VSP Racing, LLC is newly founded and owned by John Allen of De Leon Springs, Florida. Allen has been a sponsor at the track for the past three years and is thrilled at the new opportunity.


"Everyone at VSP Racing, LLC cannot thank World Racing Group enough for this opportunity to finish out the 2016 racing season," said Allen. "We also cannot thank Gary Risch and Tom Deery from World Racing Group enough for this opportunity, because the deal was done on such short notice to bring the track back to life."


Other racing action for 2016 will include racing dates on November 26, December 3, and December 10, which would conclude the 2016 racing action.


With the track re-opening in November, VSP Racing, LLC points for all racing divisions are now final per the old schedule (final points race was October 29). The Youngs Enterprises Iron Man Series will still run the remaining two events, and details for those events will be announced in the near future.


The track is still owned by DIRTcar Racing, who takes over operations annually in January and February for the DIRTcar Nationals, which includes racing action from DIRTcar Racing, the Super DIRTcar Series, the Artic Cat All Stars, the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series, and the World of Outlaw Craftsman Late Model Series.
