Schaeffer Oil Spring Nationals Moved to July

BRASSTOWN, NC-With a bleak weather forecast filled with rain and cooler temperatures on April 7-8, Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series officials – along with management from both Wythe Raceway and Tazewell Speedway – have announced that the doubleheader has been canceled for Easter weekend.  With no suitable make-up date for Wythe Raceway, the $10,053 to win shootout will not be rescheduled.  We look forward to working with Fred Brown and everyone at Wythe on July 15 for our Southern Nationals race and again next spring.  The ‘Lil Bill Corum Memorial’ at Tazewell Speedway, on the other hand, will be rescheduled for Monday, July 3.
The third edition of the ‘Lil Bill Corum Memorial’ will still shell out a $21,000 first place prize on July 3 and will pay $1,000 just to start the 75-lap main event.  Since the event is rescheduled for after the Spring Nationals point finale on May 28, it will be a non-points race for the tour competitors.  All pre-entries are set and will be transferred to the new date of July 3.  Any driver that is pre-entered, but can not make it to Tazewell for the rescheduled date will receive a credit towards another event.  While the ‘Lil Bill Corum Memorial’ is open to any driver, only the 18 drivers that pre-entered for the April 8 original date will be eligible for the $2,100 Fast Time Award courtesy of Toyota Knoxville.
Next up for the cars and stars racing with the Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series presented by Coltman Farms Racing will be a tripleheader in the states of Tennessee and Kentucky from April 27-29.  Crossville Speedway in Crossville, Tennessee will host a $7,553 to win program on that Thursday night, while Lake Cumberland Speedway in Burnside, Kentucky will do the same on that Friday evening.  The triple shot will then conclude on that Saturday at Clarksville Speedway in Clarksville, Tennessee, as a $10,053 top prize will be on the line.  Additional information on these races will be made available as the weekend nears.
