The Florida State Series started its 41st season at Valkaria RC, home of the 2016 Roar Nationals. With nearly 90 entries running 3 qualifiers and 1 main and 7 different classes it was set to be a long day of racing. In the heavily contested 17.5 Super stock TC, Wallace Motorsports team driver Dave Vera took the TQ and the wire to wire win with his Infinity If14-2, with Brian Larkin coming in 2nd and Anthony Schimizzi rounding out the podium. Dave was also able to TQ and take the wire to wire win in the Modified division with his Infinity TC by a narrow margin over Felix Law (2nd) and Cory Parsons (3rd). In Formula One, Wallace Motorsports driver Anthony Schimizzi from 2nd on the grid put some serious pressure with just under 1 minute to go in the race on TQ Sean Wager and made an awesome pass in the chicane coming onto the straight to take the lead and hold on for the win. Sean Wager would finish 2nd with Scott Meeks finishing 3rd.
