For the first time in recent memory, both events can happen outside the specter of a NASCAR national touring series event.
After I moved to MB/SC the first weekend used to feel like Christmas & the 2nd like New Years... The first week featuring the LLM/SELLM race that was almost guaranteed to be unbelievable chaos & drama unlike any other race in motorsports... The 2nd weekend was for the adults who would party somewhere else and had too many expensive things to host us kids. But you were still elated by the sheer event.
Now the New Florence Motor Speedway is carrying the torch. I will say this, FMS has no fear of selling too many tickets... If history is any indicator, this weekend might be the wildest short-track action of the year. Plus the track has already announced so many participants for both weekends, they have to stop all personal vehicles from entering the pits. Just Go!
