Last year, the back-to-back, season-opening events for the O'Reilly NARA Battle of the Bluegrass Series presented by Arizona Sport Shirts at the Florence Speedway drew an outstanding field of cars. The 2006 Spring 50 Tune-Up saw 58 entries sign into the pits with Martinsville, IN's Don O'Neal besting Dan Schlieper and Brian Birkhofer to pick up the win. "The Real Deal" backed that up on Saturday night by cashing the $5000 first-place paycheck in the 30th Annual Spring 50 over Dan Schlieper and early race leader Roger Williams. Scott Bloomquist, Dan Schlieper, Darrell Lanigan, Steve Casebolt, and the late Jack Boggs among others are all previous winners of the Spring 50.
