CAMARGO, Ill. – The University of Northwestern Ohio (UNOH) All Star Circuit of Champion Sprint Cars will blast open the 2013 racing season with five big events in the Southern states.
The first of those events is the third annual Winter Freeze on Feb. 7 at Screven Motor Speedway. The UNOH All Stars will then head to Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Fla., Feb. 8-9, followed by the wrap up of the southern swing at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Fla., Feb. 13-14.
“We consolidated our events in the south this year. It will save the fans and race teams some money as our races are being held over two weeks,” said Guy Webb, president and CEO of the UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions.
Action begins at Screven on Feb. 6 for the Third Annual Winter Freeze and runs through Feb. 9. The UNOH All Stars will battle on Feb. 7 for a $5,000-to-win affair to kick off the touring group’s season. During the Winter Freeze, Screven will also host the World of Outlaw Late Models, national late models, the Florida mini-sprints and possibly a non-sanctioned winged sprint-car.
“We’re excited to have the All Stars down here. We normally run fendered cars so this will be a real treat for our fans,” said Screven Motor Speedway Owner James “Red” Griffin.” “We only have one night for the sprints this year, but it’s a better deal for those teams as they go to Ocala the following two nights and then to Volusia the next week. Hopefully putting the events closer together will entice more of the northern sprint car teams to come down here and give our fans a thrill.”
