TAZEWELL, Tenn. — Tazewell Speedway owner Gary Hall has announced the addition of an Easter weekend special next season, paying $20,000 to win on Saturday, April 11.

This mega event will feature the Schaeffer’s Oil Iron-Man Late Model Series presented by DirtonDirt.com facing off against the Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series presented by Sunoco Race Fuels.

The two tours will combine for 75 laps for not only $20,000 to the winner, but $1,000 just to start the main event.

Next year will mark the 15th season for the Hall-promoted venue that sits in the heart of East Tennessee, and the April 11 race will go down in history as the largest paying one-day event in the track’s storied history.

The last major event of this caliber at Tazewell was on the Fourth of July weekend in 2011, when Chris Madden claimed a World of Outlaws Late Model Series payday worth $20,000.
