Tropical Storm-Like Weather Forces A Fall Classic Cancellation

Due to saturated grounds and continuous thunderstorms throughout the week and into tomorrow night, Volusia Speedway Park has decided to cancel the Fall Classic.
Track crews have been unable to begin work on prepping the track due to how muddy the track has been from the rolling storms in the Gulf of Mexico, and the forming of Tropical Storm Fiona beginning to make way through the Dominican Republic and parts of Cuba.
The Top Gun Sprint Cars feature will not be made up. The next race Volusia Speedway Park will host sprint cars will be the Battle In Barberville on December 2nd.
The next race at the World’s Fastest Half Mile will be the final local championship race of the season on October 1st. The night will be one you won’t want to miss!
Tickets will be $12, with kids 12 and under free. Gates will open at 4:00PM, with Hot Laps at 6:00PM. For more information on the next race and other events held at the track, visit
