Memorial Day Championship with $3,000 Southern Nationals Bonus Series Reset for Friday June 2nd at Tri-County Race Track
After late afternoon and evening rains hit the facility at Tri-County Race Track located in Brasstown, N.C., officials we’re forced to move the Seventh Annual Memorial Day Championship Race to its new date of Friday June 2nd.

After a crowded pit area of drivers we’re registering to enter Monday’s action, a late afternoon shower struck the grounds for nearly two hours into the evening and with more rain in the area, track crews were forced to postpone the entire program. Monday Night’s event will be reset for this Friday Night June 2nd and all tickets from the general admission area and armbands from the pit area will be good for this Friday Night.
The Southern Nationals Bonus Series will take to the Ray Cook-promoted Western North Carolina oval racing for $3,000-to-win and $300-to-start. The Limited/Crate Late Models ($800-to-win), Interstate Welding Modified Street ($500-to-win), Street Stocks ($300-to-win), Pony class ($300-to-win) and the Beginner Class ($250-to-win) will all be racing during the night’s activities. A $300 Bonus to the highest finishing Limited Late Model/Crate Late Model that doesn't win will also be given. A Fireworks show will also light up the evening’s sky during the intermission.
The Southern Nationals Bonus Series made two previous visits to Tri-County Race Track in 2016 with Jonathan Davenport of Blairsville, Ga. sweeping the Memorial Day Championship and Tarheel 50 races. David Payne of Murphy, N.C. leads the point standings with a slim eight point margin over Donald McIntosh of Dawsonville, Ga.
There have been two different winners in two races so far this season. Tim McCreadie of Watertown, N.Y. won the season opening Shamrock race at Boyd's Speedway and Tyler Carpenter of Parkersburg, W.V. won the series' most recent Mike Roland Memorial event at Richmond Raceway.
The Southern Nationals Bonus Series will utilize the following Tire Rule for Tri-County on June 2nd: American Racer 44, 48 & 56 (RR option only) and Hoosier 1300, 1350 & 1600 (RR option only). The Southern Nationals Bonus Series-sanctioned event will see a full racing program of practice, Qualifying, Last Chance Heats and the 40-lap main event. At each Schaeffer's Oil Spring Nationals, Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals and Schaeffer's Oil Southern Nationals Bonus Series event in 2017, the highest finishing CT525 engine in the main event will receive a $200 bonus and the highest finishing Steel Head/SPEC engine will also receive a $200 bonus.
