Tazewell Speedway - Tazewell

May 8: After the speedway sat idle for two weekends, Mother Nature decided to let the race action get underway but she tried to play spoiler by letting a cold, hard wind blow.  Still, loyal race fans witnessed a great night of racing with the Super Late Models returning for 30 laps of action, along with the Tazewell Late Models. 

The Tazewell Late Models qualified first with Scott Sexton grabbing the pole with a blistering lap of 12.281 seconds, and Billy Ogle, Jr. setting fast time for the Super Late Models with a 11.979-second trip around the oval. 

Ogle grabbed the point followed by Mike Smith and Vic , but the action was slowed on lap seven when Hill hit fluids and got loose in turn four, resulting in a caution.  At the mid-point, Ogle's near straight-away lead was erased when Anthony Arnwine blew a motor on lap 17.                      

Ogle also encountered problems on lap 19, yielding the lead to Smith, who held off Hill and Steve Smith to take a hard earned victory.

Polesitter Sexton took the field to green and led all the way in the Tazewell Late Model division. Travis Fultz gave chase in second throughout, while Ross White and Jason Trammell battled for third until White slipped on lap 13 and Trammel took the spot for good. White took fourth while held off Jody Horton Steve Carr's challenges to finally finish fifth.

On lap 26 of the race, Carr got sideways and Ryan King had nowhere to go.  Carr and King would retire after the wreck. ~ Allan Earl
