During the Summer of 2017, construction crews are doing major maintenance on the I-71/75 Bridge at the Ohio River in Cincinnati. Traffic is restricted to two lanes at most times and is leading to major backups. For those who travel to the Speedway from the North, it is suggested that you take an alternate route if you have to go through that area. For more info, check out this webpage on the construction: http://brentspence2017.org/plan-your-drive/

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.
