DIRTcar Sunshine Nationals

DIRTcar Racing will kick off the 2020 season with the all-new DIRTcar Sunshine Nationals Jan. 16-18 at Volusia Speedway Park. The event will feature DIRTcar Pro Late Models, Florida Late Models and 602 Late Models racing for a total purse of nearly $100,000, including a $10,000-to-win finale for Pro Late Models.

The DIRTcar Sunshine Nationals includes Feature events for all three classes each night at the half-mile speedplant near Daytona Beach, with points assigned to results on the first two nights that will set the field for the Saturday finales, similar to the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series Firecracker 100 weekend.

“Dirt late models are an important part of DIRTcar Racing, and we are excited to showcase them in January at Volusia with the Sunshine Nationals a few weeks ahead of the DIRTcar Nationals,” DIRTcar Racing COO Tom Deery said. “With the number of late models running the 602 and 604 motors, especially in the southeast, we felt it was time for them to be the focus of an event like this one. For those further north, where winter is going to be around well into March and April, this gives them a chance to break free from cabin fever, head to Florida for a vacation and go racing.”

Just like the DIRTcar Nationals in February, gates will open each day at 5 p.m., with Hot Laps beginning at that time. Tickets and camping for the event will be available at the gate, and you can find tickets for the 2020 DIRTcar Nationals online.

A practice night on Wednesday, Jan. 15, will precede the Sunshine Nationals, giving all competitors a chance to get dialed in before the action counts.
