Press Release, Clewiston FL, Dec. 8, 2013 – The Hendry County Motorsports Park in response to feedback from fans in the stands and Race Teams in the pits this weekend, has decided to combine the Saturday/Sunday Everglades Winter Nationals event into one extended day of racing, basically getting two days of racing into one Saturday event. Fans can see both the heat races and the feature events without a two day commitment and Race Teams can make the decision to stay the night or make the trip home. The pits and facilities will be open Friday and Saturday night for overnight camping. Our HCMP Points Season will end with a Saturday Night Band, under the lights. The Lil John Wheelie Magic Fire Truck and the Eagle Jet Top Gun Sprint Car Meet and Greet will be our biggest intermission event of the year, what a great way to end the 2013 Season, Saturday Night, under the lights.
The racing will include all of the racing divisions that have been with us this year, Eagle Jet Sprints, the Daytona Antique Auto Racing Association, Open Wheel Modifieds, Limited Late Models, Street Stocks, V-8 Thunder Stocks and Modified Mini Stocks. The Eagle Jet Top Gun Sprints will be racing for over $10,000 in prize money, payouts for heat races, sponsored Lap Award money, Hard Charger Award, Halfway money, Hard Luck Award and a guaranteed $300 to start. All local classes will be competing for final season points positions and increased purses, $1000 to Win Open Wheel Modifieds, $1000 to Win Limited Late Models, $500 to Win Thunder Stocks, $500 to Win Street Stocks and $200 to Win Modified Mini Stocks. All this racing will require an early start and a strict adherence to the schedule. The Derrick Scott Band will perform after the races, vendors will stay open and camping and socializing is encouraged for fans and race teams. Saturday December 14th will be Feature Finale of the Everglades Winter Nationals 2013 Inaugural Event and the Hendry County Motorsports Park 2013 Points Season. The Track will reopen Saturday March 1st racing the first and third Saturday of each month.
