ST. AUGUSTINE SPEEDWAY BEEFS UP RACING SCHEDULE

ST. AUGUSTINE, FLA.- St. Augustine Speedway officials announced this week, the addition of two more touring series events to the 1999 racing schedule. The Southern Automobile Racing Association (S.A.R.A.) AT&T Construction Modified Series has now scheduled two appearances at the Northeast Florida racing facility, adding a second 50-lap affair on August 7, to the previously scheduled October 16 date. The new August 7 date for the powerful open-wheel class will occur in conjunction with the Sunbelt Super Late Model 125-lap appearance on that same evening, making it a truly, spectacular evening of racing. Also added to the 1999 racing schedule this week, is a second 100-lap appearance for the S.A.R.A. Key Bank and Trust Late Model Series on October 9. An outstanding race by the S.A.R.A. Late Model teams during their recent (June 26) visit to the Speedway prompted numerous requests from fans and competitors alike, for a second show. The early October date was the first available date that fit both schedules. Race fans will recall in that June event, local favorite, Scotty Lagasse, Jr. come within a quarter of a lap of pulling off the biggest victory in his career before having his race come to an abrupt end just yards short of the finish line. In making the announcement of the revised schedule, Speedway officials hinted that other changes could be in store that would even further enhance upcoming dates on the 1999 racing calendar. The next NASCAR Touring event at the Speedway comes up on July 24, when the Goody's Dash Series, a part of the NASCAR Touring Division comes to town for a 100-lap special. Also featured on the July 24 date will be the local Muffler Man Modified division as well as the Mini Stock and Hobby Stock classes. Racing at St. Augustine Speedway continues non-stop through the remainder of the 1999 racing season on Saturday evenings culminating with the second 1999 appearance of the USAR Hooters Pro Cup Series in November.
