Day 2 started with misty rain. It had down poured at the race track around 6am that morning, so the New Smyrna Club started drying the track shortly after the gates opened. The day started a little later than expected, but once the track was dry the heat races began which were determined by pill draw on registration day. The weather cleared up with blue skies and temperatures in the low 80’s for most of the day. All heat races were run and the mains began. The mains were completed through Heavy Honda and with the Light GX 160 A-Main on the track the rain began to fall. The cars were brought in and covered in the work area. Track drying began again in an eager attempt to get the rest of the A-Mains in. Everyone was watching the radar on their phones, but it’s Florida and it’s unpredictable. There were cars on the track finishing up the drying when a short rain began to fall again. A break was taken in the action and the trophies from the mains completed were handed out as track drying was going on. The A-mains were completed and the 11th Annual Lil New Smyrna 500 came to a close. The Day 2 Results were:

Year End Banquet 


We held our year end banquet and trophy presentation ceremony on January 12, 2013 at the old Daytona USA facility at the Daytona International Speedway.  Everyone who attended the event had a good time.  The surprise of the night was the special guest appearances by NASCAR drivers Mike Skinner, Matt Kenseth and Juan Pablo Montoya.  Each driver spoke to the guest about their racing experiences followed by a question and answer session.  Special thanks to Randy Dye for arranging this for the club. 

We also inducted 3 new members into the Hall of Fame.  Those drivers that were inducted were:  Brittany Frosh, Kyle Eastham and Matt Martin.

Bob Stoekel was presented with a trophy as our token of appreciation for his many years of hard work and dedication to the club.

Work Party Coming Up Soon

There will be another work party scheduled for later in the season prior to the Lil 500.
