Schaeffer’s Oil Iron-Man Late Model Series
Shifts Date at Tri-County Race Track to August 23
Schaeffer’s Oil Iron-Man Championship Late Model Series
presented by DirtonDirt.com was set to make its first-ever appearance
at the Ray Cook promoted Tri-County Race Track in Brasstown,
NC as part of the track’s Independence Day Championship
on Friday July 5, but due to a scheduling conflict with a pair
of other Late Model series, that date has been moved and will
now take place on Friday August 23 at the picturesque and historic
North Carolina racing venue.
With the rainy weather that has seen so many rainouts and affected
not only Tri-County Race Track, but many other tracks and series
as well, the track had actually booked the Iron-Man Late Model
Series, Southeastern Late Model Series, and the Blue Ridge Outlaw
Late Model Series by mistake all on the same date as part of
trying to make-up events that had been previously rained out
at the track earlier this season. The Schaeffer’s Oil
Iron-Man Championship Late Model Series presented by DirtonDirt.com
will be now be in competition at Tri-County Race Track on Friday
August 23, paying $3,000 to win, while the Southeastern Late
Model Series date will go to Monday September 2. The Blue Ridge
Outlaw Late Models will still be featured at Tri-County Race
Track on Friday July 5. (MRM

Early Season Schedule at Tri-County Race Track Altered;
Open Practice Session this Friday, March 15!
inclement weather ruining not only last weekend's open practice
session at Tri-County Race Track, but also track maintenance
and prep throughout the spring, track promoter Ray Cook has
been forced to shuffle around the early-season schedule for
the Brasstown, North Carolina oval. A pair of open practice
sessions are now slated for this Friday, March 15 and next Thursday,
March 21, while the 2019 lid lifter at the Tarheel State venue
has been pushed back to Friday evening, April 5. A $2,000 top
prize will be on the line for the ground-pounding Super Late
Models during the season opener at Tri-County Race Track. Be
sure to check out the latest schedule by clicking on www.TriCountyRaceTrack.com!
"We apologize for having to shuffle around our schedule
at the last minute, but the weather has not been our friend
this spring," quoted Cook earlier tonight. "The track
is in pretty good shape, but there is quite a bit of work that
needs done to the facility in order to host a race. Hopefully,
we can get that all done in the next week or two before our
season opener on April 5 and have a great start to our 2019
