Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Stop to Lavonia Speedway Halted by Rain and Flooding

(May 27, 2022) The inaugural trip for the Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series to Lavonia Speedway, which was scheduled for tonight, May 27, has been halted due to heavy overnight thunderstorms and flooding at the racetrack. The $4,053 to win event at the historic Lavonia, Georgia oval will not be made up as a points race, but discussions are underway with track officials to reschedule later this summer as a non-points show. Details on a make-up date will be announced in the future.

With the Lavonia rain-out, what was originally scheduled as a Memorial Day tripleheader to wrap up the 2022 Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals tour will now to be condensed into two hardcore days of racing action. Up first will be a visit to Boyd’s Speedway in Ringgold, Georgia for a $5,053 to win showdown on Saturday, May 28 before the season finale takes place on Sunday, May 29 at Duck River Raceway Park in Wheel, Tennessee - where another $5,053 top prize will be on the line.

Three drivers - Carson Ferguson, Payton Freeman, and Cla Knight - will duke it out for the right to earn the 2022 Spring Nationals title and the $10,053 Championship spoils. With two series races remaining this weekend and the opportunity to drop their worst finish following the finale, Carson Ferguson currently leads the standings by 44 markers over Payton Freeman and by 48 points over Cla Knight.

Grandstand admission is $20.00 for adults, $5.00 for kids ages 6-12, and FREE for those children ages 5 and under. A pit pass will be $40.00 for adults, $15.00 for kids ages 6-12, and FREE for those children ages 5 and under.
