Figure 8 Events Set For Florida


ANDERSON, Ind. — Winged Outlaw Figure 8 Series officials confirmed the series will be headlining two consecutive weekends of racing at Showtime Speedway in February.

This will mark the second consecutive year that Outlaw Figure 8’s have been a part of Florida Speedweeks.

The WOFS will kick off its inaugural 2014 season with the second annual Southern Figure 8 World Finals Feb. 22 at the Pinellas Park, Fla., quarter-mile oval.

The two-day event will feature preliminary races Feb. 21. Saturday night February 22 will conclude the weekend with a 150-lap Figure 8 event.

Eddie Van Meter captured the inaugural event in 2013 and in the process picked up $5,000 for his efforts.

The WOFS will return one week later to Showtime Speedway on March 1 for the inaugural WOFS Florida State Oval Championship race as well as a 25-lap Figure 8 feature event.
