Season Championships this Saturday!
It’s Season Championship week here at Florence Speedway, and the points battles are some of the closest we’ve ever seen! Four of the Five divisions have less than 35 points separating first and second, and some are even closer than that. In our Late Model division, Trevor Landrum has a 32 point lead over Jessie Lay and Robby Hensley, who are tied for second. In our Slicker Graphics Modified division, Ryan Morton not only just has a 20 point lead over Shawn Brown, but only 54 points separates first and fifth! In the Crates, Billy Green holds a slim nine point lead over Jeff Alsip and only a 13 point lead to third, and 47 points to fourth. And while Mike Ackman has a commanding 154 point lead in the Phoenix Comfort Systems Pure Stock points, in the Hornets, Billy Gibson Jr. is only 23 points ahead of Brandon Stephens. With Season Championship night being double points all night, it makes the points battles even tighter! On the track, everyone will be racing for extra money this week as the Late Model feature will be $2,000 to win, the Slicker Graphics Modifieds $800 to win, Crates $600 to win, the Phoenix Comfort Systems Pure Stocks $400 to win, and the Hornets $250 to win. So come out this Saturday and help us crown our 2017 Season Champions!

Slicker Graphics comes on board as Modified Division Sponsor. Phoenix Comfort Systems returns as Pure Stock Sponsor.
We are pleased to announce that Slicker Graphics has stepped up to become the title sponsor for our Modified divison here at Florence Speedway. The division will now be known as the Slicker Graphics Modifieds. Our modified division is one of our top divisions and produces some of the best racing at the track. The matchup with the division and Slicker Graphics is a natural one as many of the cars that compete in the division weekly are Slicker Graphics customers. Slicker Graphics is a proud member of the racing community and a sponsor of many of the cars you see on the track every week. They are a local based company that specializes in providing first-class motorsports wraps at an affordable price as well as commercial services to businesses and individuals across the tristate region. Don’t forget that whether it’s at the racetrack, at home, or when you are simply talking about race wraps – “The Slicker the Better!”
For more info on Slicker Graphics check out their website at www.theslickerthebetter.com, on Facebook and Twitter @slickergraphics.
We are also happy to announce that Phonix Comfort Systems has returned to be the title sponsor for our Pure Stock division. Known as the Phoenix Comfort Systems Pure Stocks, the division features action packed racing with street type stock cars with minimal modifications for racing. Phoenix Comfort Systems is a Florence, KY based company that provides a full range of air conditioning and heating repair, installation, and maintenance services for residential and commercial customers. They keep your air conditioning and heating systems in their best condition and ready to go when you need them most, following the industry’s “best practice” methods and standards.

Sunoco Race Fuels Heat Race Challenge
We at Florence Speedway are excited to announce that the Sunoco Race Fuels Heat Race challenge is returning for the 2017 season. We and Sunoco Race Fuels have teamed up for a program to reward drivers who race here weekly. The Sunoco Race Fuels Heat Race Challenge will reward drivers who run well in their heat races and run Sunoco Race Fuel products. The twist to this program is that where, in most cases, drivers in different divisions can not compete against each other, in the Sunoco Race Fuels Heat Race Challenge, the eligible drivers will be competing head to head! That’s right, the Late Models, Modifieds, Crates and Phoenix Comfort Systems Pure Stocks are all competing for the same prize. At the end of the season, the top point earner will gain a $500 prize from Sunoco, and everyone in the top 10 will receive cash awards. For more details check out the program info page on our website.At the track, we currently offer Sunoco HCR+ 114 Octane, Supreme 112 Octane, 260 GT Plus 104 Octane Unleaded Crate Fuel, and Methanol for sale by the gallon. We also have access to drums of each of the above and all of Sunoco’s fuels. If anyone is interested in purchasing a drum, just ask at our fuel sales area. Purchase of any of the above qualifies you for the Sunoco Heat Race challenge bonuses.The Sunoco Heat Race challenge begins on April 1st.
Transponders now mandatory
In 2015, Florence Speedway installed a transponder scoring system at the track. Transponders are devices attached to the cars that allow for electronic scoring of the races. This allows for quicker turnarounds in cautions and more accurate scoring of the races. Transponders are already in use at many tracks and by many series across the country and are becoming the standard method of scoring in auto racing. We have transponders available for rent or for sale at the track at our new registration building. Transponders are now mandatory in all divisions.
Host Hotel for 2017 Season Announced!
We are excited to announce that Florence Speedway has upgraded to the Hilton! The Hilton Cincinnati Airport is now the Official Host Hotel of Florence Speedway and the 35th Annual Sunoco North/South 100 presented by Lucas Oil. The hotel will be offering a reduced rate for Florence Speedway customers for the entire 2017 season. The Hilton Cincinnati Airport, is conveniently located 15 minutes away from the track at the Turfway Exit(182) off of I-75/71 and is situated close to multiple restaurants, shopping, and a short drive from the casinos and the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport. 
To book rooms, call the hotel at (859) 371-4400 and ask for the Florence Speedway rate or click HERE to book online. 
2018 Sponsorship Opportunities Available
We are already looking for companies who are interested in advertising with us for the 2018 season. We can do packages that incorporate signage, billboards, website advertising, mailer advertising, company outings at the track, company titled race nights, division sponsorships, T-shirt and other giveaways, or we can customize sponsorship ideas to fit your needs. We can work with sponsors with most any budget from companies who only want to spend as little as $200 up to corporations with advertising budgets in the thousands.
