Tonight's Event at Tri-County Race Track Unfortunately Postponed and Pushed Back to May 20
Due to an unfortunate utilities issue at the race track, tonight's scheduled show at Tri-County Race Track has been postponed and pushed back to Friday, May 20. It was with great hope that we could have the utilities problem at the track resolved by race time tonight, but that is not the case. Promoter Ray Cook and everyone involved at Tri-County Race Track apologizes for the inconvenience, but we want to make sure everything is fixed properly before we return to racing action.

When the gates at the Brasstown, North Carolina oval open next on Friday, May 20, all divisions will be on the card. The Super Late Models will be racing for a $2,000 top prize, while the Street Stock Championship will shell out $800 to the winner. The Interstate Welding and Steel 602 Late Models will compete for $500 and a regular show is planned for the Limited/Crate Late Models, Open Wheel Modifieds, Pony, and FWD divisions.

The pit gates will open at 4:00pm on Friday May 20 and the grandstands will open an hour later at 5:00pm. The Driver's Meeting is scheduled for 7:00pm with racing action slated to begin at 7:30pm. Adult admission will be $15.00 into the stands and $35.00 into the pit area. Kids 11-16 will be admitted into the grandstands for only $10.00 and into the pits for $20.00. Those children ages 10 and under will be allowed onto the grounds for FREE. Once again, we apologize for the late notice and inconvenience of postponing tonight's show, but we look forward to seeing you back at the track on Friday, May 20!

Garrett Smith Survives Attrition-Filled Tri-County Contest for First Spring Nationals Win
Young upstart driver Garrett Smith, of Eatonton, Georgia, captured his first career Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series victory on Thursday evening in an attrition-filled battle at Tri-County Race Track! Garrett stopped the clock second quickest overall during the FK Rod Ends qualifying session at the Brasstown, North Carolina oval, which locked him into the outside of the front row for the 40-lap headliner. Garrett got the jump at the outset of the race over polesitter Payton Freeman and survived nine caution flags - five coming in the final seven circuits - to bag the $4,053 winner’s check.

Freeman, who earlier in the night set a New Track Record in qualifying at the “Tiger Pit” with his quick lap of 12.069 seconds, slipped back to as far as fourth in the running order before making a late charge to a strong runner-up performance. New #SpringNationals point leader Carson Ferguson moved up three spots to finish in the third position to round out the podium. Local favorite Jamie Oliver was steady in advancing past four racecars to nab a fourth place effort, while Kenny Collins debuted a new car to a fifth place showing despite an unfortunate spin on lap 33. | full results

Forecasted Wet Weather Pushes Spring Nationals Visit to Tri-County Race Track to Thursday, April 21
With forecasted wet weather rolling into the Brasstown, North Carolina area tomorrow, March 18, Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series officials made the decision today to postpone Friday’s $4,053 to win shootout at Tri-County Race Track to Thursday, April 21. While it is always disappointing to push back an event, the postponed date will set up a huge series tripleheader in the states of North Carolina and Tennessee from April 21-23. Following the visit to Tri-County Race Track on that Thursday evening, the Spring Nationals will then sanction a similar $4,053 to win show on Friday at Crossville Speedway in Crossville, Tennessee before heading to Clarksville Speedway in Clarksville, Tennessee on Saturday with a $10,053 payday up for grabs.

Next up for the Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series tour will be a lucrative doubleheader on April 15-16 at Wythe Raceway in Rural Retreat, Virginia and Tazewell Speedway in Tazewell, Tennessee. A strong field of competitors is expected to vie for the $10,053 paycheck on that Friday at Wythe, while the ‘Lil Bill Corum Memorial’ at Tazewell on Saturday will shell out a whopping $21,000 to the winner.

The program scheduled for tomorrow night at Tri-County Race Track was slated to be the facility’s 2022 season opener. With the postponement of the Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series stop to the 1/4-mile oval, the season lid lifter will now be Friday, April 1. The Interstate Welding 602 Modified Street Spring Championship will be held with a $1,500 top prize on the line. Other classes in action on April 1 will be the Limited/Crate Late Model, Open Wheel Modified, Street Stock, Pony, and Front Wheel Drive divisions. | full story
