Super Late Model racing ends its season every year with the Snowball Derby at Pensacola's Florida's Five Flags Speedway in December. Only a few weeks later the birth of another new season takes place in the same state, but on the east coast.
New Smyrna Speedway, which is just south of Daytona Beach, is consistently the host site for the first show of the new season. The short off-season of asphalt short track racing comes to an end with the Red-Eye 100, which will celebrate its 29th running this Saturday at New Smyrna.
