Tri-County Race Track Forced to Shuffle Schedule; Postpones North Carolina State Championship

(November 16, 2020) Promoter Ray Cook announced today that he is regrettably forced to postpone the upcoming 'North Carolina State Championship' race that was scheduled for Tri-County Race Track on Friday, November 20. The $4,000 to win Super Late Model contest was scheduled to be the penultimate event on the 2020 Schaeffer's Oil Fall Nationals Series tour, but will now be postponed until Friday, March 19 to be a part of the 2021 Schaeffer's Oil Spring Nationals Series. The annual 'Billy Clanton Classic' at Senoia Raceway in Senoia, Georgia will now be the lone remaining race and final show for the Fall Nationals tour in 2020, as a $10,000 top prize will be on the line in the Peach State this Saturday, November 21.

"I am sorry to have to announce the postponement of this race, especially after we just publicized it a few weeks ago," quoted Cook today via telephone. "A couple members of our family have been exposed to the coronavirus and will still be in quarantine. Thankfully, no one has any serious symptoms and everyone is doing fine. However, this will cause us to be short staffed and we do not have everyone in place to be able to host the event." | full story

Muddy Conditions and Cool Temperatures Force Wythe Raceway Fall Nationals Cancelation

(October 30, 2020) Wythe Raceway officials notified Schaeffer's Oil Fall Nationals Series promoter Ray Cook earlier this morning that they unfortunately had no choice but to cancel this Saturday's $10,000 to win 'Halloween Spooktacular.' Heavy rains for the past two days have saturated the infield pit area at the Rural Retreat, Virginia speedplant and coupled with cool temperatures, it is unlikely that the pit area dries out until next week. The October 31 event, which was scheduled to be the Fall Nationals fourth show of the 2020 season, has been canceled and will not be rescheduled. However, track promoter Fred Brown and Cook are pleased to announce that Wythe Raceway will be on the Schaeffer's Oil Spring Nationals schedule, as a similar $10,000 to win contest is booked for Friday, April 2!

While the Wythe event was unfortunately lost, a second Schaeffer's Oil Fall Nationals Series date at Tri-County Race Track has been added to the schedule for Friday, November 20. Dubbed the 'North Carolina State Championship,' track promoter Ray Cook will put a $4,000 top prize on the line for the Super Late Models at his Brasstown, North Carolina facility. The November 20 event will be the weekend lid lifter for the Fall Nationals drivers before the series moves to Senoia Raceway in Senoia, Georgia on Saturday, November 21 for the rain-postponed 'Billy Clanton Classic.' More information concerning this big doubleheader weekend will be released in the upcoming weeks. | full story

Brandon Overton Leads Final Nine Circuits to Go Back-to-Back in FK Rod Ends Tarheel 50!

(October 22, 2020) "Big Sexy" Brandon Overton continued his stellar 2020 racing season tonight by recording his second straight FK Rod Ends 'Tarheel 50' title at Ray Cook's Tri-County Race Track! Brandon started the 53-lap headliner from the pole position - by virtue of a dash victory - but ran in the second spot during the first 44 circuits of the contest. Hounding race-long pacesetter Shane Clanton in and out of lapped traffic, Brandon finally found his opportunity to squeeze by Clanton's #25 machine coming off of turn four to lead lap 45. From there, the Evans, Georgia standout kept his car out front and picked up the $10,053 windfall by besting fellow Georgian Shane Clanton, Dale McDowell, eighth starting Ricky Weiss, and Donald McIntosh.

(September 6, 2020) After a subpar finish by his standards in the Schaeffer's Oil Fall Nationals Series presented by Sunoco Race Fuels opener a night prior, Donald McIntosh turned up the wick on the competition on Sunday evening, September 6 at the bad-fast Tazewell Speedway in Tazewell, Tennessee to win the 12th Annual 'Buddy Rogers Memorial!' In the event co-sanctioned with the Schaeffer's Oil Iron-Man Championship Series, Donald clicked off the fastest lap overall during the qualifying session with a time of 11.653 seconds and later set sail in the 44-lap headliner from the pole position. The Dawsonville, Georgia standout led each and every circuit of the caution-plagued contest to record the $4,400 payday ahead of fellow front row starter Ryan King, twelfth starting Aaron Guinn, defending race winner Dakotah Knuckles, and Pierce McCarter, who battled back from a mid-race tangle to grab the fifth spot.

The win for McIntosh, who is the defending Schaeffer's Oil Fall Nationals Series Champion, was his third career victory with the tour and his first in the annual 'Buddy Rogers Memorial.'

Fall Nationals Series to Adopt World of Outlaws Late Model Series Rulebook for 2020 Season

(January 7, 2020) In an effort to help unify body rules and what has become known as the droop rule, series promoter Ray Cook is pleased to announce today that all three of his series - the Southern Nationals Series, the Spring Nationals Series, and the Fall Nationals Series - will adopt and follow the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series rulebook in 2020. While the newly announced World Racing Group droop rule varies slightly from the rule Ray and his tech officials have enforced in recent years, it is important for everyone to work together in an effort to make Super Late Model racing safer, while enforcing a unified set of rules. You can view the rulebook files on the RULES page of the website!
