Muddy Conditions and Cool Temperatures Force Wythe Raceway Fall Nationals Cancelation
(RURAL RETREAT, VIRGINIA) Wythe Raceway officials notified Schaeffer’s Oil Fall Nationals Series promoter Ray Cook earlier this morning that they unfortunately had no choice but to cancel this Saturday’s $10,000 to win ‘Halloween Spooktacular.’ Heavy rains for the past two days have saturated the infield pit area at the Rural Retreat, Virginia speedplant and coupled with cool temperatures, it is unlikely that the pit area dries out until next week. The October 31 event, which was scheduled to be the Fall Nationals fourth show of the 2020 season, has been canceled and will not be rescheduled. However, track promoter Fred Brown and Cook are pleased to announce that Wythe Raceway will be on the Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals schedule, as a similar $10,000 to win contest is booked for Friday, April 2!
While the Wythe event was unfortunately lost, a second Schaeffer’s Oil Fall Nationals Series date at Tri-County Race Track has been added to the schedule for Friday, November 20. Dubbed the ‘North Carolina State Championship,’ track promoter Ray Cook will put a $4,000 top prize on the line for the Super Late Models at his Brasstown, North Carolina facility. The November 20 event will be the weekend lid lifter for the Fall Nationals drivers before the series moves to Senoia Raceway in Senoia, Georgia on Saturday, November 21 for the rain-postponed ‘Billy Clanton Classic.’ More information concerning this big doubleheader weekend will be released in the upcoming weeks.
