Tazewell Speedway has released their 2017 schedule. There are a number of special events and some noticable changes to this year’s schedule.
The 2017 schedule features a number of open dates throughout the season. The weekly racing program has been scaled back to more of a special events-type schedule, though there are a number of weekly racing programs scattered through the event.
Following an open practice on March 25, the season officially gets under way on April 1 with the 8th annual Charles Trammell Memorial for the limited late models that will pay $2,000 to win.
The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Toyota of Knoxville 50 has been moved up several weeks to Friday, May 5. The World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series switches to Friday, June 2. A Southeast Dirt Modified Series is sandwiched between those two on May 27.
The Southern Nationals Bonus Series will make two visits to the ultra-fast 1/3-mile speedway on July 1 and on Sunday, September 3 for the 9th annual Buddy Rogers Memorial.
For the 12th straight year, the Schaeffer Oil Southern Nationals will conclude their two-week trek at Tazewell Speedway on Saturday, July 29 for another $10,000 to win race.
Other special events and weekly race programs are scattered throughout the season concluding with the annual Fall Brawl on October 14.
