Rain Postpones Tri-County Spring Nationals to Thursday, April 10; Smoky Mountain Still a GO!
The third time will be a charm for the Old Man’s Garage Spring Nationals Series by Schaeffer’s Oil at Tri-County Race Track, but due to a major storm system that is still moving across the Southeast, track promoter Ray Cook has been forced to postpone tonight's event yet again to its new date of Thursday night, April 10. This will set up for three great races in the North Carolina/Tennessee area next week, as the World of Outlaws Late Models Series will sanction a pair of shows on Friday, April 11 at Duck River (TN) Raceway Park and at Tazewell (TN) Speedway on Saturday evening, April 12. Both venues are part of the Southern Nationals family of tracks.

The Saturday night, April 5 Spring Nationals Series program at Smoky Mountain Speedway in Maryville, Tennessee is still a go, as the storm system is scheduled to move across the region and be out of the area by Friday evening. The event will pay $6,000 to win for the Spring Nationals Late Models, while the American Modified Series and Limited Late Models will be the supporting divisions tomorrow night.

The Smoky Mountain Speedway in Maryville, Tennessee will host the tour for Round #3 on Saturday night, April 5 paying $6,000 to win / $500 to start - a race which is presented by East Tennessee Auto Outlet. In addition to the Ray Cook-promoted tour, the American Modified Series will also be in attendance paying $3,000 to win and the Limited Late Models will race for $1,000 to win. In 2013, Tommy Kerr of Maryville, Tennessee claimed the Spring Nationals victory at Smoky Mountain in the Super Late Models over Jonathan Davenport and Vic Hill while Bryan Barber of Buffalo, Kentucky claimed the AMS-sanctioned Modified win.
