In the Super DIRTcar series, Friday night’s third round of the quest for the Big Gator at Volusia Speedway Park was captured by Gypsum Racing’s No. 99L Lightning Larry Wight, who thrilled the crowd by blasting around the high-side of the track no matter how little cushion was left to lean on.

On Saturday, Stewart Friesen held off Gypsum Racing teammates Larry Wight and Billy Decker to win the 50-lap DIRTcar Nationals finale. Wight won the Gator Championship for the second time in his career.
