Tazewell Speedway - Tazewell
Oct. 2: With cool weather finally here, Tazewell Speedway opened its gates one last time
for 2010 with seven classes of race cars racing in six feature events, including the crowd-pleasing Super late
models racing for a $2,000 first place check. Steve Smith earned his first win here in three years.

at Tazewell Speedway on the 2nd. (Allen Earl)
Smith got the jump on Jason Trammell and left Rick Rogers and Trammell to battle for second. On lap 11, Rogers
fell off the pace, moving Chad Ogle into third, but more importantly moving Trammell to the rear of Smith's
Rayburn. After changing a flat, Rogers rejoined.
On the restart Trammell gave a couple of car lengths away but got them back as the caution flag flew for a Jeff
Neubert spin in turn two. Trammell slipped on lap 21 and gave a cushion that Smith used to take the win,
ending a three-year drought.

Steve Carr and Greg Estes watched from row two as Fultz and Jason Trammell blasted into turn one. Fultz took the
lead and Steve Carr pressured Trammell for second.

on the 28th. (Allen Earl)
On lap 19 it was a two way battle for the lead with Carr just behind them. Fultz had to struggle at times to
clear lapped traffic and Trammell used it well to get close but each time Carr would get close enough to make
Trammell pay attention to him and that let Fultz stay ahead and break the four race win streak of Trammell.
Aug. 28 Finish: 1) Travis Fultz, 2) Jason Trammell, 3) Steve Carr, 4) Phillip Nichols, 5) Greg Estes

Rick Rogers kept the field at bay to score the Aug. 14th Super Late Model win at
Tazewell Speedway. (Allen Earl)
Aug. 14: In Saturday's Super Late Model feature at the Taz, Rick Rogers, Jeff Maupin and
Vic Hill pulled away from the field until a lap 17 caution flag was displayed for Bryan Hendrix. His machine
encountered problems while fighting with Terry Wolfenbarger for sixth place.
On the restart, Maupin tried Rogers on the low side but Rogers could keep it wound up and slid off once again to
a two-car length lead. On lap 24, Maupin could hear Hill close in, but managed to stay ahead of him to secure
second. Rogers rolled his BKW, Goddard performance parts Warrior into victory lane after taking a win over Maupin,
Hill, Chad Ogle and Steve Smith.
Jason Trammell hit the loud pedal and took the field into turn one, but was soon racing side by side with Travis
Fultz after the start of the Tazewell Late Model feature .
A lap eight caution flag was thrown after contact between Josh Henry and Andy Wilder left the 24 of Wilder
stopped on the back stretch. At the restart the top five were Trammell, Fultz, Steve Carr, Phillip Nichols, and
Greg Estes. Wilder rejoined at the rear of the field for the restart.
As Trammel struggled through mid-race lapped traffic during the middle laps, Carr began to put the heat on Fultz
in the middle laps, but Fultz's Dodge was strong enough to keep Carr behind and secure second. Despite having to
give a nose to a couple of slower cars, Trammell nevertheless took home his fourth win in a row. With second place,
Fultz once again did what he had to do to stay firmly in the lead for the points championship. ~ Allen Earl
