AUSTIN, Texas — Castrol® FloRacing Night in America rolls into Kentucky’s Florence Speedway on Wednesday, May 31 for the seventh round of the 2023 campaign.

The night’s $23,023-to-win program marks the final event for the miniseries before the summer break. After the program on May 31 at Florence Speedway, the next event is set for Tuesday, September 12 at Fairbury (Ill.) Speedway.

Thus far into the season there have been four different winners on the season with Mike Marlar, Ricky Thornton Jr., Dennis Erb Jr., and Hudson O’Neal. Erb and O’Neal have both picked up two victories this season as 120 different drivers have entered at least one event.

Hudson O’Neal leads the latest standings by 33 markers over Bobby Pierce. Brandon Sheppard, Tim McCreadie, Jonathan Davenport, Ricky Thornton Jr., Mike Marlar, Dennis Erb Jr., Tanner English, Brandon Overton, Devin Moran, Spencer Hughes, Tyler Erb, Earl Pearson Jr., and Kyle Bronson round out the current Top 15 in the latest points.

A driver’s best 10 finishes in the 13-race miniseries count toward the 2023 title, which posts a $75,000 prize with perfect attendance or a $50,000 champion’s take without perfect attendance.

In total over $137,000 is up for grabs in the 2023 point fund, which pays 10 places.

Next up fort Castrol® FloRacing Night in America is a visit to the King-family owned Florence Speedway (Union, Ky.) this Wednesday, May 31 for a $23,023-to-win / $1,000-to-start event. The event marks the miniseries debut at the famed oval after a 2021 rainout thwarted the tour’s first attempted visit.

Also in action will be Modifieds ($1,500-to-win) and Crate Late Models ($1,000-to-win).

General admission (ages 18-and-up) is $30 with children (ages 13-17): $20, and kids (ages 12-and-under) free. Pit admission is $45.

Pit gate opens at 3 p.m. CT with the grandstand gate opening at 530 p.m. The driver’s meeting is at 5:30 p.m. with hot laps at 6:00 p.m. and racing action to follow.
