They say that if you don’t like the weather in Florida, wait five minutes and it will change. Unfortunately, when you’re counting on dry conditions, that doesn’t help much. Last night’s activities were cut short when Mother Nature didn’t cooperate, forcing the continuation of the Brown & Miller Racing Solutions $20K race portion of the Fun In The Sun Series presented by Lucas Oil and Drag Racing Edge until today.

Four years ago, Scott Richardson and Scott Weney came together to recreate the “racing in Florida in November” feeling that was so prevalent in the ‘80s, ‘90s and early 2000s. It wasn’t uncommon back then for hundreds of racers to make the trek south and east each year to escape the upcoming winter weather and enjoy some sun and racing with families and friends.
Unfortunately, Scott Weney passed away at that very first race in 2014, but together with Jeff Stange of Strange Engineering, Richardson has continued the tradition and while unofficially known as the Scott Weney Memorial Race, the annual Fun In The Sun bracket race has flourished.

The NHRA Toyota Nationals opened on Thursday with Lucas Oil action. Two of the three qualified classes which raced The Strip at Las Vegas completed qualifying.
Back at the U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis over Labor Day weekend, Stock racer B.J. Graham was the No. 1 qualifier and class winner while racing her Mustang II in the U/Stock Automatic division. This weekend, she stepped up to T/Stock Automatic with the same results.
