The Varner Ford 50 rains out for only the second time in six years
TAZEWELL, TN – April 9, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – An unfavorable weather forecast that includes rain, snow and cold temperatures has prompted an early cancellation of this weekend’s World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series Varner Ford 50 at Tazewell Speedway.
With a collaborative effort between Tazewell Speedway owner Gary Hill and World Racing Group, the event was scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. with gates opening at 4 p.m. The night consisted of time trials, heat races, last chance races and the 50-lap main event for $10,000.
“Gary and the crew at Tazewell always hit a home run with this event, but in the best interest of everybody it did not give him an option,” Series Director Tim Christman said.
Series officials considered rescheduling the event but concluded there will be no make-up date. The last rain-out at Tazewell Speedway came in 2013. This is the second rain-out at Tazewell since the Outlaws started making an annual appearance in 2010.
The World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series returns to action April 29 at Carolina Speedway in Gastonia, N.C. All tickets will be sold at the door as “general admission.”
