#FLinFeb

For Super DIRTcar Series racers and fans, UNOH DIRTcar Nationals presented by Summit Racing Equipment is as much a vacation as a speed week…a February RACEcation. Travelers from New York, Pennsylvania, Ontario, Quebec, and other parts of the frigid north are happy to take a break from their snow-covered homes and spend some time in sunny Florida.

And thus the hashtag, #FLinFeb. Tweeple watching Volusia racing at the track or at home can see the latest updates and join the conversation.

Can Laubach make it a twofer?

After clocking the second fastest hot lap time overall, Laubach looks like he’s ready to repeat last night’s success with a heat race win. He was able to keep Neal Williams and Brett Hearn behind him. Both Laubach and Williams will go to the redraw, where they contend against Billy VanInwegen, Justin Haers, Stewart Friesen, H.J. Buniting III, Mat Williamson, and Danny Johnson.

The young Canadian racer Mat Williamson and his team seem to have found the right formula for Volusia Speedway Park. Last night, Williamson took the 6 to 11th place after starting 21st, and tonight he won his heat race. The modified driver from St. Catharines, Ontario, is certainly a strong contender in tonight’s race.

Pete Britten, who placed third the past two race nights and fourth the opening night, is starting his season strong. The Australian modified driver typically competes strongly in qualifying events, often falling behind in the redraw and the feature. Last night his experience was the opposit; Britten expressed dissatisfaction with the 13th spot he qualified for, yet he was able to charge ahead to third. Will Britten be able to further improve his feature performance tonight after placing 5th in his heat race?

Justin Haers fast in hot laps

Justin Haers, of Phelps, N. Y., made the fastest lap during the timed hot laps session with a 17.393-second lap. Haers placed second in Friday’s Super DIRTcar Series race at UNOH DIRTcar Nationals presented by Summit Racing Equipment, and is already setting himself up for success in tonight’s race.
