Two top local racers are preparing to make the southern trek to Florida during the month of February, testing their skills against some of the nation’s top short-track racing stars.

South Beloit’s Tim Sargent and Roscoe’s Austin Nason have both filed entries for the 48th Annual World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at New Smyrna Speedway near New Smyrna Beach, Florida. The nine day event kicks off Friday February 14 and continues through Saturday February 22.

The ‘World Series’ is part of a busy short track racing scene in the state of Florida during the month of February, full of events on both dirt tracks and asphalt tracks from Tampa Bay to Daytona Beach. The bevy of short track racing, along with the events held at the Daytona International Speedway, help make up the motorsports event known as ‘Speedweeks.’

Sargent, the 2010 Rockford Speedway Late Model Track Champion, looks to be among the contenders during Speedweeks. The 39 year old racer is coming off a solid season, which saw him finish fifth in the 2013 Big 8 Late Model Series point standings. Sargent captured (5) top five finishes in nine Big 8 Series starts this past season, while also pocketing a win at Jefferson (WI) Speedway during the regular season

Nason, who turned 18 in January, makes his first ever trip to Florida for Speedweeks competition. The 2011 Rockford Speedway Sportsman champion and 2012 Rockford Speedway Late Model Rookie of the Year finished last season fourth in Big 8 Series points with (4) top five finishes, including a second place finish at Milwaukee Mile in July. Along with those accomplishments, Nason finished fifth in September’s National Short Track Championship 200 lap Super Late Model race at Rockford, his first race in on of the high powered Super Late Models.

Both drivers are campaigning their automobiles in the Pro Late Model division at New Smyrna. As of February 1, drivers from eight states, two Canadian provinces and the country of Peru filed entries to race a Pro Late Model at New Smyrna Speedway during Speedweeks.

Sargent, Nason and the rest of the Pro Late Model drivers take to the track seven times during the eight night event, including a 50 lap race on Monday February 17 and a 100 lap race on Thursday February 20. Other divisions competing during the ‘World Series’ include the NASCAR K&N East Series, NASCAR Modifieds, Super Late Models, IMCA Modifieds, Sportsman, Mini Stocks, Super Stocks and Pro Trucks.

Bob Bertolozzi was not only glad he won the Goblin 250, he’s glad the race WAS the Goblin 250.

The Rock Falls native, nursing a tattered and torn racer around Rockford Speedway for the final ten laps, limped across the finish line first Sunday afternoon, topping 116 other competitors in the 250 laps test of man and machine.

Bertolozzi kept himself in contention for most of the 250 laps, running in one of the top four positions for over 200 circuits. On lap 180, when then leader Rick Zifko was sidelined temporarily with a flat tire, Bertolozzi inherited the top spot. However, ten laps after snagging the lead, Bertolozzi came upon danger in turn four as Jay Orr’s automobile lie stranded in the middle of the speedway. Both Bertolozzi and Destiny Robinson had no escape, meeting at the front end of Orr’s disabled machine. Despite the contact, Bertolozzi and Robinson continued on, however Bertolozzi suffered moderate front end damaged to his car after the direct hit to Orr.

Bertolozzi initially showed few ill effects until lap 230, when his pace began to slow slightly. By lap 240, Bertolozzi brought his car to the bottom side of the track, merely nursing his vehicle to the checkered flag. With a three lap buffer between he and the field, Bertolozzi’s choice of car preservation worked to perfection, as he coasted to the win. Bertolozzi’s triumph was his first ever in six previous attempts at Rockford.

Zifko, who led over 100 laps of the race before relinquishing the lead to Bertolozzi fought back from his tire issues at lap 180. The Aurora native returned to the track in short order, racing back into contention by races end, settling for a second place finish. Janesville’s Derek Dixon was very steady throughout the race, making a slow climb in the second half of the 250 lap affair. Dixon’s day ended in the third position. Kyle Stark finished the race in fourth spot, while central Illinois driver Tyler Griswold rounded out the top five.

Eleven four cylinder cars later returned to the track for the “Big Swarm” Demo Derby, with Beach Park’s Bruce Stonecipher outlasting Machesney Park’s Stephan Hillary for the trophy. Andy Die of Burlington WI (Super Stock) and Cory Huebbe of Granville IL (Trucks) were the big winners in the “Reckless in Rockford’ Demo Derby presented by Damaged Goods.
