Saturday night will also include more alcohol fueled winged action as the O'Reilly All Stars return, and the Florida Mini Sprints will take a final shot at Ocala's gumbo clay. Adult admission for the February 5th races is $25, and again the souvenir trailers will be present to outfit race fans in all of the latest fan gear.
An added bonus for sprint car fans is that the Ocala Winternational events draw racers not only from the O'Reilly All Star Circuit of Champions, but also a list of teams from series like the World of Outlaws as well. Ocala offers one of the very few opportunities for these teams to get some competitive seat time before the DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park the following week, so teams are usually anxious to take advantage of the situation.
For the Florida Mini Sprints, Ocala's Winternationals will open their season by offering seat time on what is probably the most difficult circuit they will face in 2011. Last year's Winternationals drew a long list of Florida racers, plus mini sprint teams from as far away as the Carolinas as well. These little winged machines are powered by 600 to 750 cc engines, weigh in at around 800 to 900 lbs, and can generate speeds of over 130 mph.
Fans traveling to Ocala Speedway for the Winternational events are reminded that plenty of accommodations are available in the area, and camping is available on site for $10.
