Tennessee Tripleheader Next For WoO LMS


MARYVILLE, Tenn. – Next up on the 2013 World of Outlaws Late Model Series schedule is a trip to Tennessee that represents a rare occurrence for the national tour: a same-state tripleheader comprised of three different tracks.

When the WoO LMS rolls through the Volunteer State this weekend for events on Friday (April 26) at Smoky Mountain Speedway in Maryville, Saturday (April 27) at Tazewell Speedway and Sunday (April 28) at Duck River Raceway Park in Wheel, it will mark just the third time in the circuit’s history that it contests races on consecutive days at three tracks in a single state.

The only other instances that match this Tennessee Triple-Play in the WoO LMS record book both came in Ohio. In 2008 the series ran at Muskingum County Speedway, Eldora Speedway and Sharon Speedway from July 24-26 and in ’10 visited Sharon, Attica Raceway Park and Muskingum County from July 29-31.

This weekend’’s WoO LMS action was originally scheduled as a doubleheader at Smoky Mountain and Tazewell, but it grew to a full three-race swing after Duck River’s event was postponed from March 24 due to wet and cold weather. All three events will be topped by a 50-lap A-Main paying $10,000 to win.
