Bill Corum Memorial at Tazewell Speedway Announced for Easter
17, 2020) While the entire Schaeffer's Oil Spring Nationals
Series schedule for 2021 is not quite complete and ready to release
to the public, the crown jewel event for the Ray Cook-promoted
miniseries is set in stone for Saturday, April 3. The inaugural
running of the 'Bill Corum Memorial' will take place over Easter
weekend 2021 at the bad-fast Tazewell Speedway in Tazewell, Tennessee.
The single-day program at "The Taz," which will be co-sanctioned
by the Schaeffer's Oil Iron-Man Championship Series, will boast
a whopping $21,000 top prize and will pay $1,000 just to start
the 75-lap headliner.
The 'Bill Corum Memorial' was on the 2020 schedule for the Spring
Nationals tour, but the entire ten-race miniseries was unfortunately
wiped out due to COVID-19. The Schaeffer's Oil Spring Nationals
Series has visited Tazewell Speedway in two prior years, as Billy
Ogle, Jr. scored a $6,000 win back in 2015 and Dakotah Knuckles
secured a $5,000 triumph in 2018. More details on the 'Bill Corum
Memorial' will be released in the upcoming months, but be sure
to mark the April 3 date on your calendar to be a part of this
The 2021 season will mark the 16th year for the Gary Hall-promoted
venue that sits in the heart of East Tennessee and the $21,000
to win 'Bill Corum Memorial' will go down in history as the largest
paying single-day event in the track's storied history. The last
major show of this caliber at Tazewell Speedway was back on the
4th of July weekend in 2011 when Chris Madden claimed a World
of Outlaws Late Model Series victory worth a hefty $20,000 payday.
More information on the 1/3-mile, high-banked dirt oval located
near the Tennessee-Kentucky border can be found online at www.TazewellSpeedway.net.
