Rain Halts Crossville Speedway Spring Nationals Action; Postponed Until June 14

(May 24, 2018) The Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals presented by Sunoco Race Fuel and Tennessee RV would visit Crossville Speedway in Crossville, TN on Thursday evening to begin the Spring Nationals 2018 Championship weekend of events, but Mother Nature again proved not be a race fan, as rain began falling over the track after the initial start of the 40-lap main event.

The initial start of the event would see Casey Roberts and Jason Jameson duel it out for the lead, with Jameson leading by less than a half-car length as the field attempted to complete lap one, but a melee ensued behind the leaders that involved six cars and drivers. As track officials worked to clean up the incident and remove a pair of disabled cars from the track, rain began to fall lightly, but quickly picked up in intensity, forcing series and track officials to send the teams to the pit area. After much deliberation, with it being a Thursday evening and many spectators having to report to places of employment on Friday, the decision was made by the track and series to stop the action and postpone the event until Thursday June 14.

In other preliminary action for the Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Super Late Models, Casey Roberts of Toccoa, GA had posted the fastest qualifying lap in Group A with a time of 12.030, while first-time visitor Jason Jameson of Lawrenceburg, IN was the fastest qualifier in Group B and overall top qualifier with a lap of 11.728 seconds, establishing a new track record for Super Late Models at Crossville Speedway. The Super Late Model main event will resume right where it left off, with zero laps officially scored.

More information concerning what will take place on the rescheduled date of the event of Thursday June 14 will be released in a press release in the week leading up to the race.

The Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals presented by Sunoco Race Fuel and Tennessee RV next event will be Friday May 25 at Boyd’s Speedway in Ringgold, GA, paying $4,000 to win.
