Tri-County Race Track Goes for Third Try at Spring Nationals Series this Thursday, April 10!
The Old Man’s Garage Spring Nationals Series by Schaeffer’s Oil will get a third try at racing action this coming Thursday evening, April 10 at Tri-County Race Track in Brasstown, North Carolina. After rains washed out the racing action the last two Friday nights, track & series promoter Ray Cook has dubbed this coming Thursday night as the makeup date for the event, which will pay $4,000 to win and $400 to start for the Spring Nationals Series-sanctioned event. The weather forecast for this Thursday looks more promising, so the cars will take to the track for this special event at the track located minutes outside of Murphy, North Carolina.

The Tri-County Race Track in Brasstown, North Carolina will be the fourth event on the schedule paying $4,000 to win / $400 to start on Thursday night, April 10. The support classes that evening include the Crate Late Models racing for $600 to win, the Interstate Welding Modified Street division will race for $300 to win, and the Street Stocks will be competing for $250 to win. A $200 bonus will be paid to the highest finishing Steel Head/Spec or 525 Late Model to make the show and $100 for the second-highest finisher in the Spring Nationals Super Late Model event. Casey Roberts of Toccoa, Georgia won in exciting fashion during last year's series visit - capturing the $4,000 payday over Billy Ogle Jr. and Stacy Boles.

So far this season, there have been three different winners in three events during Old Man’s Garage Spring Nationals by Schaeffer’s Oil competition. Jimmy Owens, of Newport, Tennessee, won the season opening show during the 'Spring Thaw' at Volunteer Speedway on March 14 with Chris Madden of Gray Court, South Carolina capturing night two of the annual event. The most recent winner was Billy Ogle, Jr., of Knoxville, Tennessee, who claimed the 'East-Tennessee Auto Outlet 50' at Smoky Mountain Speedway on Saturday night, April 5. Ogle now sits atop the point standings where he leads by just four markers over Mike Marlar. Eric Wells, Vic Hill, and Stacy Boles complete the top five in the championship point standings.

With the Spring Nationals event being run this Thursday, it gives drivers the opportunity to race in Friday & Saturday's World of Outlaws Late Model Series programs at Duck River (TN) Raceway Park and Tazewell (TN) Speedway, which pay $10,000 to win each. Both Duck River & Tazewell are part of the Southern Nationals Series family of tracks.

On Thursday, April 10 at Tri-County, the pit gates will swing open at 4:00 pm, the grandstand gates open at 5:00 pm, the driver's meeting is slated for 7:00 pm, and racing is set to begin at around 7:30 pm. Adult general admission is $18.00 with children 11-16 admitted for $10.00 while children ten and under will be admitted for free. Adult pit passes are $30.00 with children 11-16 admitted for $15.00 while children under ten will be admitted for free.
