Belkey Doubles Up at Volusia

Joe Belkey doubles up this past Saturday night winning the Bump-n-Run and the Thunder Stock Feature. Richard Ferry, Wryan Schaffer and Dustin Higdon also took home their respective class trophies. The Bump-n-Run was exciting as usual. Joe Belkey made one fan happy when he picked her ticket out of the Belkey bucket. All in almost $1,000 was given out to the fans last night. Stay tuned for the next Bump-n-Run event with another class.

Thunderstock Shock Claim Rule Revision

After much discussion with racers and other race tracks the decision has been made to make a minor revision to the shock claim rule in the Thunderstock division at Volusia Speedway.

The current rule is $75 per shock and claimer must be on the lead lap. This will be updated to $100 per shock and the claimer must finish in the top five. All other conditions still apply.

Some have requested that the claim price be increased more but the majority of people with input have stated that the intent of the claim rule is to discourage the use of expensive racing parts in what is intended to be an affordable racing class.

This rule change will be updated on the Volusia Speedway website and will be effective as of the April 6th race event.
