Batavia, OHIO (August 5, 2022) – One of the highly anticipated events of the season, the 40th Annual Sunoco North/South 100 Presented by Lucas Oil, will roar to life August 11-13 at Florence Speedway. The expanded format of the storied event adds $60,000 to the weekend purse in 2022, bringing the grand total for three days to over $300,000, the richest event in Florence Speedway history.

Since its inception, a diverse group of twenty-seven different drivers that includes renowned veterans and rising young stars have graced the North/South 100 Victory Lane. A field of 27 assembled at Florence Speedway for the inaugural North/South 100 in 1983, which saw Pat Patrick lead 60 laps to earn the victory and a $4,000 payday.

The event purse increased to an astounding $50,000-to-win in 2003. Dan Schlieper took the lead from Brian Birkhofer with five laps remaining to earn the victory and the record-breaking prize.
