Labor Day Championships at Tri-County Race Track Pushed to September 9
The entire show at the Brasstown, North Carolina facility will remain the same this Friday night - headlined by the 2nd Annual ‘C.T. Barnett Memorial’ for the ground-pounding Super Late Models. The unsanctioned contest will boast a $3,437.38 top prize and will shell out $300 just to start the main event, which will be 38 laps in length. In addition, a $200 product certificate from Competition Racing Equipment will be awarded to the driver laying down the quickest lap during the qualifying session.
Along with the Super Late Models, the Southeastern Late Model Sportsman Series will invade the Brasstown bullring, as the Limited Late Model competitors will race for a $1,500 winner’s check courtesy of the fine folks at King Ford. The Interstate Welding 602 Late Models will compete for an $800 payday, while a non-qualifiers race for the division will also be held paying $200 to the winner. Other classes on the racing card include: Street Stock $400 to win, Open Wheel Modified $400 to win, Front Wheel Drive $200 to win, and the Boyd’s Speedway B-Hobby $500 to win. Multiple drivers that compete at Boyd’s have expressed interest, so the B-Hobby division has been added to the lineup.
In addition, a Faster Pastor Race will also be held at the 1/4-mile facility. Race proceeds and purse will be donated to the Carolina Christian Academy and to the Churches of the Pastors represented in the race.
The pit gate will open on Friday, September 9 at 3:00pm, while the grandstands will start to allow patrons into the track at 4:00pm. The Drivers Meeting will begin promptly at 6:00pm and cars will take to the dirt surface for hot laps starting at 6:30pm.
