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."

"We have been very blessed to run all of the races that we have during this very difficult year," Cook went on to say. "To run from May to July with no fans and then be able to have fans from July up to now has been a great accomplishment and we are so thankful to everyone who has supported Tri-County Race Track during the 2020 season. The North Carolina State Championship race is something that I have been wanting to do for a while now and I look forward to kicking off the 2021 season at Tri-County with this great event!"

While the inaugural 'North Carolina State Championship' race is off the table for November 20, the season at Tri-County Race Track is not over. Ray has added a season-ending daytime show on Saturday, December 5 with seven divisions in racing action at the Brasstown, North Carolina bullring. The Super Late Models and Limited Late Models will run together for a $1,500 winner's check, while Crate Late Models ($1,000 to win), Modified Street ($600 to win), Street Stock ($400 to win), Pony ($300 to win), Front Wheel Drive ($200 to win), and Beginner Class ($200 to win) are also on the racing card.

The pit gates and grandstands will open on December 5 at 10:00am and the Driver's Meeting is scheduled for 12:30pm. Racing will begin promptly at 1:00pm. Grandstand admission for adults is ONLY $10.00, while kids 11-16 will be admitted for $5.00, and children 10 and under are FREE. Pit admission for adults is $35.00, while kids 11-16 will be admitted for $20.00, and children 10 and under are FREE. More information on Tri-County Race Track can always be found online at www.TriCountyRaceTrack.net.

"While I am disappointed about not being able to host the North Carolina State Championship, it has allowed us to schedule a new season finale for December 5," commented Cook. "Not only will we be racing during the day, but we will also honor all of the 2020 champions from each class with their trophies and awards. In addition, Tri-County Race Track will be doing a Toy Drive for needy children in the Tri-State area. We invite fans, drivers, and crew members to bring NEW, UNWRAPPED TOYS to this event. All toys will then be distributed to kids in time for Christmas. We also encourage anyone that doesn't attend the race, but wants to be a part of our Christmas Toy Drive, to just give us a call. Our hope is that this will be a FUN day to cap off the year and that everyone will come out to the track and join us!"
