TAZEWELL, TN – April 27, 2013 – Widespread rain across the state of Tennessee has forced Tazewell Speedway owner Gary Hall to call off tonight’s scheduled World of Outlaws Late Model Series event at the famed high-banked, one-third-mile oval.
Hall made the decision on Saturday morning as showers began moving over the Tazewell area. The approach of heavier precipitation and possible thunderstorms and little chance of immediate clearing combined to leave Hall no other suitable option.
The rainout marks Tazewell’s first since the WoO LMS began making an annual appearance at the track in 2010. It’s also the sixth time this season that a World of Outlaws event has been called off due to weather.
No raindate for Tazewell’s event has been announced, but Hall said he will discuss rescheduling the program with WoO LMS officials. Fans should check www.worldofoutlaws.com and www.tazewellspeedway.net in the coming days for an update.
The WoO LMS event scheduled for Sunday (April 28) at Duck River Raceway Park in Wheel, Tenn., remains on. On-track action is set to start at 4 p.m. CT.
