CARTERSVILLE, GA – The NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series has added two events to the 2013 Touring Division schedule. The series will make its first ever visit to Tennessee National Raceway in Hohenwald, TN on July 26, and then travel to Clayhill Motorsports in Atwood, TN on July 27.
Tennessee National Raceway will host an open practice session on July 25 to prepare for the $2,000-to-win 40-lap race there the next night on July 26. The July 27 race at Clayhill Motorsports will be a 50-lap $2,500-to-win event, and the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series will bring the Ride For Life two-seat dirt late model to benefit the local chapter of the American Cancer Society.
Race fans at Clayhill Motorsports will have the opportunity to bid at a special auction and purchase chances to win a ride at race speed sitting next to their favorite driver piloting the Ride Car Life race car. All of the proceeds from the highest bids at the driver’s auction and the sale of the ride chances will all go to the local chapter of the American Cancer Society.
The NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series Touring Division will be making its second visit to Clayhill Motorsports, the premier motorsports facility in West Tennessee. The 2011 NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series Rookie of the Year Chase Edge of LaFayette, AL took his first-ever series career win last May at Clayhill Motorsports.
In other scheduling news, the July 6 race scheduled for Albany Motor Speedway in Albany, GA has been removed from the 2013 NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series Touring Division schedule. NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series officials are working towards filling that vacancy on the schedule at another track.
The addition of the Tennessee National Raceway and Clayhill Motorsports events now bring the 2013 Touring Division event total to 22 races over 10 weekends.
