FK Rod Ends Tarheel 50 at Tri-County Race Track Postponed to Thursday, October 28
A wet week with more rain to come has again impacted the inaugural season for Castrol® FloRacing Night in America. The 18th annual FK Rod Ends Tarheel 50 presented by Jacky Jones Automotive Group originally slated for this Thursday, October 7 at Tri-County Racetrack (Brasstown, N.C.) has been rescheduled for Thursday, October 28 and will now be the series' 2021 finale.

The rain date for the event will be Friday, October 29.

"More of the same, that's all you can say," series general manager, Ben Shelton cynically shared. "It's been raining there already this week, and it's supposed to rain the rest of the week, so promoter Ray Cook decided to push the show to later in October. Hopefully, Mother Nature will finally be a race fan and we can get our remaining events at 411 Motor Speedway (October 12), Volunteer Speedway (October 20), and Tri-County Racetrack (October 28) completed." | full story
