After a successful first season of promotion at the Volunteer Speedway under new management, it was announced on Tuesday afternoon that Mitch and Tanya McCarter along with sons Pierce and Mack will continue to run the day-to-day operations and race events at the Bulls Gap, TN facility. The track is owned by Joe and Phyllis Loven but was leased to the McCarters at the beginning of the 2017 racing season.
The announcement was made via the track’s Facebook page.
The posting stated:

The track then added to the Facebook post:
If everything goes as planned look for a FULL schedule at Volunteer Speedway in 2018 for the first time in many years. Special Events are in the works as you read.
The McCarter family has owned and operated 411 Motor Speedway in Seymour, TN for several years and added the second track during the most recent off season. Volunteer Speedway combined weekly classes with 411 during 2017 and also hosted a number of special events, including the highly successful “Scorcher” under sanction of the Ultimate Super Late Model Series which ran on the Thursday night prior to the NASCAR races held at the nearby Bristol Motor Speedway.
