NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Florida (January 3, 2020) — Last year, promoters of the Red Eye 100 decided to change things up for the 33rd running of the event.

In an effort to help shine more light on the up and coming Pro Late Model class, the event was changed from a 100 lap Super Late Model event to a twin feature; 50 laps for Super Late Models, and 50 laps for Pro Late Models.

For this year’s 34th installment, the 50/50 format continues, along with a full plate of local division racing.
