RACING TONIGHT AT SUNSHINE SPEEDWAY

WHAT: Short-track stock car racing featuring Legend Cars, Late Models, Open Wheel Modifieds, Mini Stocks, Street Stocks, Street Stock Figure 8s, and Oval Drags.

WHEN: Late Model time trials start at 6 p.m., racing starts at 7. Grandstands open at 5, pit gates at 4.

WHERE: 4550 Ulmerton Road (State Road 688).

ADMISSION: $10 Adults, $4 Children 6-12, children under 6 free, pits $15, parking free.

NOTES: Adult ticket prices go up $2 this week because the increasingly popular Legend Cars are returning. They are somewhat down-sized versions of 1940s-style jalopies, but much quicker. Late Models have been earning their billing as the top class recently. Drivers like No. 57 David L. Pletcher and No. 22 Sammy Coghill are expected to excel, but No. 74 Wayne Bowman has joined the class, and former class champ No. 68 Donnie Stanford has returned to challenge his fast brother, No. 69 Johnny Stanford. Also, No. 6 Billy Bechtelheimer and No. 5 Brian Leverock are running consistently at the front. Throw in some occasional visitors like No. 96 Brian Campbell, No. 7 Dwayne Dempsey and No. 72 Butch Smith and it's even better. _ BOB BOYLE
