Deyo Makes Deal for Sunshine Swing for Short Track Super Series in 2020 – DTD Exclusive
By MIKE MALLETT
Fans of the Northeast Modified division that make the annual trek to Florida for racing action will now have another venue to see the division as Brett Deyo has made a deal to take the Short Track Super Series to the Sunshine State to kick-off the 2020 racing season. Deyo and All-Tech Raceway promoter Wendell Durrance met on Monday to work out the details to ensure a Sunshine Swing now for the drivers of the STSS.
Deyo left with a deal in hand that will see three nights of racing action at the Lake City, Fla., facility for the STSS from February 5 through the 8. The teams open the week with practice on Wednesday then race for three nights with purses of $5,000 to win, $7,500 to win while the Saturday night finale will pay a hefty $10,000.
Heading south in February was something Deyo felt like he needed to do. Each national touring series heads south during the month of February. The exposure is second to none as there is very little racing going on throughout the rest of the country.
“The main thing is national exposure,” stated Deyo. “At that time of the year everyone’s eyes are on Florida. It gives us a chance to be there with all the other national series. People like to go down there on vacation and we are giving our series guys a chance to go and really compete for some big purses that are on par with the other national series for the Super Late Models and Sprint Cars.”
