The annual tradition of "Florida in February" drew a strong field of forty-four entrants on opening night of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series-sanctioned event. Unfortunately, a tangle with the wall during Time Trials left Linville with heavy damage to his No. D8 machine, bringing his night to a disappointing early end.
Forty-six Super Late Models converged on the "Clay by the Bay" for Tuesday night's $5,000-to-win program. After struggling in Time Trials, Dustin only managed a ninth-place finish in his heat race - forcing him to run a B-Main where he failed to reach a transfer position into the 25-lap main event.
Wednesday night's $7,000-to-win event fell victim to Mother Nature.
