Story By: MATT SKIPPER / VOLUSIA SPEEDWAY PARK – BARBERVILLE, FL – Big Block Modified star Demetrios Drellos finished seventh Saturday night at Volusia Speedway Park in the Battle in Barbersville, completing his first weekend in a 604 Late Model.
“It was good, and a lot of fun,” Drellos said. “The track had a lot of grip in it, which may not have been the best for me since we were wide open 90% of the time. But, for my first time, I was pretty happy with what happened.”
Going from a Big Block Modified to a 604 Late Model has its differences, but the Queensbury, NY driver continued to study and enjoy the new challenge as he prepares for the DIRTcar Sunshine Nationals, Jan. 18-21.
“The biggest thing is that I didn’t show up free enough, which is similar to the Big Block when I’m here,” Drellos said. “So, I’m sure we can find better balance. I mean, I have about 80 laps in this car, so I’m ready for what’s to come in January.”
