WYTHE RACEWAY and Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals and Southern
Nationals Schedules for 2021 Unveiled!

WYTHE RACEWAY will be releasing a 2021, 26 race schedule, featuring
several new venues.

 (BRASSTOWN, NORTH CAROLINA) Series promoter Ray Cook is proud to
unveil the 2021 version of both his Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals
Series and Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals Series schedules today!
After the entire schedule was wiped out in 2020 due to coronavirus
(COVID-19) concerns, the Spring Nationals returns in 2021 in a big way
with a lucrative slate of events that will begin in exactly two months
on Saturday, March 13 with the annual running of the $10,053 to win
‘Spring Thaw’ at Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap, Tennessee. The
spring schedule currently consists of twelve dates at twelve different
dirt venues across the states of Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia,
and Georgia from March 13-May 31.

Following the opener at “The Gap,” the tour schedule has a nice mix of
new and familiar tracks, ie, WYTHE RACEWAY, FRIDAY, APRIL 2 in RURAL
RETREAT, VIRGINIA for the cars and stars that choose to race on the
Spring Nationals in 2021. New facilities that are scheduled to host
their first series contest include I-75 Raceway in Sweetwater,
Tennessee, and Clarksville Speedway in Clarksville, Tennessee, which
will all host $10,053 to win programs. Tracks that have appeared on
the spring slate and will return in 2021 include Volunteer (TN)
Speedway, Tri-County Race Track in Brasstown, North Carolina, Tazewell
Speedway in Tazewell, Tennessee, Crossville Speedway in Crossville,
Tennessee, Boyd’s Speedway in Ringgold, Georgia, Smoky Mountain
Speedway in Maryville, Tennessee, Dixie Speedway in Woodstock,
Georgia, Rome Speedway in Rome, Georgia, and 411 Motor Speedway in
Seymour, Tennessee.

The 17th edition of the Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals Series will
start with a $10,053 to win throwdown at a brand-new venue for the
tour – the Beckley Motorsports Park in Mount Hope, West Virginia on
Friday, July 16. WYTHE RACEWAY, JULY 17 in RURAL RETREAT, VIRGINIA.
As in the past, each of the twelve Southern Nationals races will take
place at a different dirt oval, as the tour will snake through the
states of West Virginia, Virginia, Tennessee, Georgia, and North
Carolina from July 16-31. A second new track for the tour will be West
Georgia Speedway, as the Whitesburg, Georgia facility will hold a
$4,053 to win show on Thursday, July 22 – the first sanctioned Super
Late Model race in the history of the 3/8-mile Peach State oval!

Aside from the new stops to Beckley and West Georgia, the Southern
Nationals will roll into more familiar territory with events scheduled
at WYTHE (VA) RACEWAY, SATURDAY, JULY 17, Volunteer (TN) Speedway,
I-75 (TN) Raceway, Needmore Speedway in Norman Park, Georgia, Screven
Motor Speedway in Sylvania, Georgia, Rome (GA) Speedway, Tri-County
(NC) Race Track, Boyd’s (GA) Speedway, 411 (TN) Motor Speedway, and
Tazewell (TN) Speedway. A total of eight racetracks are on both the
Spring Nationals and the Southern Nationals series schedules in 2021.

“It’s been a long, drawn-out process to be able to come out with a
schedule today, but I’m really happy with how both the Spring and the
Southern Nationals turned out,” quoted Cook today. “With everything
still going on with the coronavirus and then the two Bristol weekends
that got announced late, we have had to reshuffle dates over and over.
There are still some TBA’s on the spring schedule, but I think those
dates will be secured very soon and we will be able to announce those
in the near future – along with our Fall Nationals plans.”

In addition to the release of the schedules, Ray is pleased to
announce that the minimum winning purse for the two miniseries has
been raised to $4,053 and that there will be a total of at least
eleven $10,053 to win special events sprinkled through the schedules
of both tours. The largest payday will come on Saturday, April 3, as
the ‘Bill Corum Memorial’ at the bad-fast Tazewell Speedway in
Tazewell, Tennessee will boast a $21,000 payday. Co-sanctioned with
the Iron-Man Late Model Series, the inaugural event will be a part of
the Spring Nationals and will shell out $1,000 just to start the
75-lap headliner.
