Lots of Options:
Many racers pit in their hotel rooms. We have a TV broadcast going on that keeps you up on everything.  A cool experience many enjoy!


We have a reserved pit room trackside that many racers pit in.  Tables and chairs are provided.  Reservations start once entries open up in Nov.

There is a ton of room for trailers outside the main entrance to the track. Bring your own power.  We can work on getting trailers together if you have friends coming.

Daytona's Rolex 24
Just an hour away is Daytona Speedway!  Check out all the action going on there for the 24 hour race 01/28-01/31, and see Daytona USA anytime while here!


Check-in will begin Monday evening near the pre-race pool party this year.  You can also check-in Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday in the registration area by the racetrack.  You will be able to purchase your handout items, pick up your free stuff, get traction compound, buy shirts, etc.
Pit Setup Times / Reserved Pitting:
Manufacture row setup and reserved indoor pitting will begin Monday night (times announced as race nears) E-mail if you are interested in a reserved indoor pit spot in the 'Florida Cracker' pit room.  Price is $25 and includes table & chair.  This is your pit for the whole race week.
Daily Practice Details:
   Tuesday:  There will be open practice, and timed-controlled class practice sessions. 
Wednesday:  There will be open practice, timed-controlled class practice sessions, and one practice by your heat race.  
Thursday-Sunday:  There will be open practice before the heats start each day and before the mains.  This helps groove the track for racing.  We'll have some open practice after oval qualifying for oval cars at night (Thu, Fri, Sat)
General Practice Notes:
You must practice with the rules of your class (i.e. 17.5 in 17.5 classes) and you must be registered in that class.  We need everyone's help and cooperation.  Open and Controlled practice will have racers waiting in line.  You can not 'cut' in front of the line.  Exact practice schedules will be at race.
Open Practice:  This is for when time is limited, and allows racers a chance to get on the track and turn some laps. These are short 1-2 minute runs with 10 cars at a time (not separated by class). You can make a small change and run a few laps to see how your car handles.  Many cars and drivers can run in these time frames.
   Timed-Controlled Class Practices:  This is where we schedule times for each class to practice in.  Controlled practice is set with the same class order as the racing order, to simulate similar track conditions and schedules.  Schedule is based on number of entries per class.  13.5 practices with 13.5, etc.  Practice times may vary depending on the line.
   Practice by Heats on Wed:  Heat races are setup and practice is controlled based on the actual heat lineup.  Heat #1 is practice #1, heat #23 is practice #23, etc.  Racers run with the drivers in their heat race.  After each practice, drivers marshal the next practice race.  There's one of these on Wed.
Qualifying Notes:
Qualifying is set up random and heats are not stacked.  We do stagger/Ifmar starts for both oval & road heats.  Each driver will be on their own race clock.  Racers must turn marshal each round.  Slow cars must yield to faster cars in qualifying.  We take your best single qualifier to set the mains (and to set the resorts). There are four qualifiers and one main event.  The top nine cars are locked into the A (because of the bump driver from the B). 
Resorts:  We will have a resort after each round.  A resort is a new heat line-up based on the previous qualifying results.  Faster cars end up qualifying together.  Racers voted for this.
Snowbird '1st Timer' Practice:
If you can not make practice Tue/Wed, we will work on allowing you to jump ahead of the line for practice on Thu.  We did this the last couple years and it worked well.  You must let us know before the race if you want to be included in this.

Kicking off Speed Week 2010:
Monday night we have hired the band Lucky Penny to play for us poolside!  The Radisson is working up some great drink and food specials, and sponsors will be in attendance for a 'meet & greet' session.  A good time for all ages.  We will be doing registration and check-in during the music and fun too! 
Golf:  Unfortunately we could not get things worked out this year for the golf match on Monday.  Mystic Dunes will have a special during the week.  E-mail if interested.


Race Your Way into the A-Main:
A Snowbird race tradition that has now become the  crowd favorite, for both road and oval racing fans!
Here is How it Works:
The top nine drivers are locked into the A-main after 4 rounds of heats.  Qualifiers 10th-19th will compete in the B-mains, which will be run Saturday after the last heat race (B-main roads race after last road race, B-main ovals race after last oval race).  Winners of these B-mains will be able to advance into the A-mains, which are raced on Sunday.  10th qualifier gets the now famous 'BQ Screw' award, and gets to wear the infamous Snowbird Mickey Mouse ears in their B-main.  We also have a nice "Bump N' Run" award to the racer that bumps and races their way into the A-main!
