Mike Marlar Takes Old Man’s Garage Spring Nationals Series Victory in Tri-County Debut!
Mike Marlar took the lead from Billy Ogle, Jr. on lap five and led the remaining distance for his first-career Old Man’s Garage Spring Nationals Series by Schaeffer’s Oil victory on Thursday night, April 10th at Tri-County Race Track in Brasstown, NC. The Winfield, Tenn. driver earned $4,000 for his efforts while driving the Ronnie Delk owned, Cornett Racing Engines powered Rocket Chassis. Marlar’s sponsors include Delk Equipment, R&S Trading, and VP Race Fuels. This was Marlar’s first win at the Ray Cook-promoted oval in his first career visit.

FK Rod Ends Fast Timer Marlar and Ogle led the field of 22 to the start for the 40-lapper with Ogle taking to the point and the early lead. The yellow would wave before a lap would be completed because of a false start. This would bunch the field up again for the restart. Ogle would then jump to the point with Marlar in hot pursuit. The next yellow flag would wave on lap one as Joe Armistead, Jr. would come to a stop in turn one. By lap four, Marlar would catch Ogle and make the pass coming off of turn four on the fifth lap to take the lead. On lap five the yellow would fly as Victor Lee and Donald McIntosh made contact in turn four and came to a stop. The lap-16 yellow flag would wave as Ray McElhiney made contact with Austin Smith in turn one. The final yellow would wave as David Payne slammed the wall in turn two after jumping the cushion. | more

Tri-County Race Track Goes for Third Try at Spring Nationals Series this Thursday, April 10!
The Old Man’s Garage Spring Nationals Series by Schaeffer’s Oil will get a third try at racing action this coming Thursday evening, April 10 at Tri-County Race Track in Brasstown, North Carolina. After rains washed out the racing action the last two Friday nights, track & series promoter Ray Cook has dubbed this coming Thursday night as the makeup date for the event, which will pay $4,000 to win and $400 to start for the Spring Nationals Series-sanctioned event. The weather forecast for this Thursday looks more promising, so the cars will take to the track for this special event at the track located minutes outside of Murphy, North Carolina.

The Tri-County Race Track in Brasstown, North Carolina will be the fourth event on the schedule paying $4,000 to win / $400 to start on Thursday night, April 10. The support classes that evening include the Crate Late Models racing for $600 to win, the Interstate Welding Modified Street division will race for $300 to win, and the Street Stocks will be competing for $250 to win. A $200 bonus will be paid to the highest finishing Steel Head/Spec or 525 Late Model to make the show and $100 for the second-highest finisher in the Spring Nationals Super Late Model event. Casey Roberts of Toccoa, Georgia won in exciting fashion during last year's series visit - capturing the $4,000 payday over Billy Ogle Jr. and Stacy Boles. | more

Rain Postpones Tri-County Spring Nationals to Thursday, April 10; Smoky Mountain Still a GO!
The third time will be a charm for the Old Man’s Garage Spring Nationals Series by Schaeffer’s Oil at Tri-County Race Track, but due to a major storm system that is still moving across the Southeast, track promoter Ray Cook has been forced to postpone tonight's event yet again to its new date of Thursday night, April 10. This will set up for three great races in the North Carolina/Tennessee area next week, as the World of Outlaws Late Models Series will sanction a pair of shows on Friday, April 11 at Duck River (TN) Raceway Park and at Tazewell (TN) Speedway on Saturday evening, April 12. Both venues are part of the Southern Nationals family of tracks.

The Saturday night, April 5 Spring Nationals Series program at Smoky Mountain Speedway in Maryville, Tennessee is still a go, as the storm system is scheduled to move across the region and be out of the area by Friday evening. The event will pay $6,000 to win for the Spring Nationals Late Models, while the American Modified Series and Limited Late Models will be the supporting divisions tomorrow night. | more
