While the Spring Nationals was not able to get a race into the record books at the Mount Hope, West Virginia facility this year due to inclement weather, the Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals Series presented by Coltman Farms Racing and fueled by Sunoco will start the 20th Anniversary Tour at Beckley Motor Speedway on Friday night, July 12. The series opener at BMS in a couple of weeks will shell out a $10,053 first place prize.

Unstable Weather Forecast Postpones $20,053 Beckley USA 100 to Sunday, June 30

(May 10, 2024) With rain chances escalating in the hours leading up to tomorrow’s annual ‘Beckley USA 100,’ Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series and Beckley Motor Speedway officials have jointly agreed to postpone the $20,053 Super Late Model special back to Sunday, June 30. The Mount Hope, West Virginia facility has also canceled tonight’s open practice session, but will forge ahead and try to get a regular show into the books on Saturday, May 11 - along with a weekly program for Super Late Models.

“The weather has not been kind to us the last several weeks, but we’re happy that the Beckley USA 100 will be rescheduled to its new date of Sunday, June 30,” quoted series promoter Ray Cook just a few moments ago. “The weather forecast in the afternoon tomorrow keeps getting worse and it’s just too much to ask teams to drive 7-8 hours with that kind of unstable weather. I know the track has worked hard and is eager to host the Beckley USA 100, but hopefully the weather on Sunday, June 30 will be more favorable.” | full story

Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series Weekend at Sugar Creek and Dixie Washed Out

(May 2, 2024) With the weekend forecast of wet weather failing to improve, officials from the Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series, Sugar Creek Raceway, and Dixie Speedway have all decided tonight to cancel the doubleheader scheduled for May 3-4 at the Peach State venues. The $7,553 to win event at Sugar Creek Raceway in Blue Ridge, Georgia has been postponed to Friday, May 24 and will now kick off a huge Memorial Day weekend tripleheader. A suitable make-up date for the show at Dixie Speedway in Woodstock, Georgia is still being explored and will be announced in the future.

“We all hoped the weather forecast would change as the week went on, but unfortunately that was not the case,” quoted series promoter and founder Ray Cook tonight. “All parties agreed tonight to finally pull the plug, so teams didn’t start heading this way and could go elsewhere to try and race this weekend. We are working hard to find a suitable make-up date at Dixie Speedway and hopefully we can announce something on that soon. The postponement of Sugar Creek to May 24 sets up a nice tripleheader weekend to close out the Spring Nationals season.” | full story

(May 1, 2024) The Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series presented by Coltman Farms Racing and fueled by Sunoco was slated to make its inaugural appearance at Natural Bridge Speedway next Friday, May 10. However, new track promoter Amanda Bradley regrettably notified the series that the scheduled $10,053 to win event at the Natural Bridge, Virginia speedplant would need to be canceled due to a lack of race sponsorship.

The Spring Nationals and series promoter Ray Cook, while disappointed in the cancellation, looks forward to the possibility of working with the track in 2025 and beyond. “We always hate to lose an event, but Amanda (Bradley) was in a tough spot taking over the track early in the year like that,” commented Cook tonight. “I’ve been there as a track promoter and understand that side of things. While she ultimately couldn’t make it work for 2024, we are still open to making our first trip to Natural Bridge Speedway in the future.” | full story

Finn Watson Memorial at Ponderosa Speedway Cancelled Due to Unsafe Track Conditions

(April 19, 2024) A combination of new dirt on Ponderosa Speedway, overnight rain, and a lack of sunshine today has led to unsafe track conditions at the Junction City, Kentucky oval. With a pit area full of race cars and fans still filing into the facility, track promoter Brandon Hardgrove made the difficult decision to cancel tonight's annual Finn Watson Memorial due to the spongy racing surface.

Kyle Bronson’s Dramatic Last Lap Pass Earns East Alabama Cash and First Spring Nationals Win

(April 6, 2024) Coming out on top of a furious late race battle with race-long pacesetter Zack Mitchell, Kyle Bronson emerged victorious on Saturday night with the Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series at the historic East Alabama Motor Speedway! Kyle toured the Phenix City, Alabama speedplant sixth fastest overall during the qualifying session and later placed second in his heat race to earn the outside of the third row for the start of the 53-lap ‘Jimmy Thomas Memorial.’ While Mitchell was out front and seemingly cruising, Bronson moved up to the second spot and turned up the heat late in the feature distance.

The pair ultimately swapped slidejobs for the point on multiple occasions in the waning laps before Bronson stole the lead and his first career Spring Nationals triumph with a dramatic pass on the final corner. The win also marked Bronson’s first victory of the 2024 season and was worth $10,053 to the Brandon, Florida hotshoe. Mitchell, who won his heat race and led the first 52 circuits of the contest from the outside of the front row, limped his #57 machine home in the runner-up spot after the last corner contact with Bronson. | full story

(April 5, 2024) The Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series presented by Coltman Farms Racing and fueled by Sunoco made its way to Buckshot Speedway in Clanton, Alabama on Friday night and it was Ashton Winger emerging victorious to claim the first series victory of his young career! Ashton started off his evening by posting the third quickest time in Group B during FK Rod Ends qualifying, which lined him up starting sixth on the grid in the 40-lap main event. The Hampton, Georgia ace then quickly disposed of the top five ahead of him and after a flurry of early yellow flags, Ashton nabbed the point from polesitter David Breazeale on the seventh circuit. (Simple Moments Photography)

From there, it was all Winger all the time, as he controlled the field and reached the checkered flag first by a dominant 5.102 second margin to bag the $7,553 first place prize money over runner-up Breazeale.

Dale was quick right out of the box at the bad-fast “Taz,” as he started his evening by picking up the $2,100 Fast Time Award courtesy of Toyota Knoxville in qualifying prior to securing a victory in his heat race. After starting the 75-lap headliner from the pole position, Dale jumped out to the lead on the opening lap and never looked back. (MRM Racing Photos)

Working lapped traffic like the seasoned veteran and the Hall of Famer that he is, Dale led each and every circuit in the Lil’ Bill Corum Memorial and recorded the $21,000 triumph in front of a massive hillside crowd. Last night’s winner Brandon Overton couldn’t quite keep up with McDowell tonight, but ran second throughout the 75-lap distance and was awarded a $10,000 payday for his runner-up performance. Cory Hedgecock rebounded nicely from a rough evening at I-75 by passing a trio of racecars during the feature to round out the podium in third.

The Evans, Georgia star eventually ran the #17m down in the waning laps and was able to pull even down the backstretch on the final circuit before making the inside pass for the win stick in turns three and four.

(March 1, 2024) Fresh off a successful opening night for the Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series presented by Coltman Farms Racing and fueled by Sunoco at Waycross Motor Speedway on Thursday and a subsequent rain-out on Friday at Swainsboro Raceway, more inclement and wet weather has doomed Saturday’s stop at Senoia Raceway.

On that Saturday, the dirt-slinging action will quickly shift to the bad-fast Tazewell Speedway in Tazewell, Tennessee. The annual running of the ‘Lil Bill Corum Memorial’ will once again shell out $21,000 in first place prize money.
