With the Southern All Stars "Raging Rebel Tour 2001" Season opening event less than six weeks away, this looks like a breakout season for the Southern based touring series. The series schedule is highlighted with several $5000. to win main events & a number of $10,000 to win 2 day events. Our very own Tazewell Speedway will host the series twice in 2001. On Saturday July,7 the SAS tour will visit the taz for a 1 day show, paying $5000. to win. Friday & Saturday night, August 3rd & 4th looks to be the biggie for our fans, as the series will make its 2nd & final stop of the season here. This will be a 2 day show, 100 laps paying $10,000. to the winner.
For the 2001 season, alot of new drivers have their eye on the SAS crown. Wesley Hood & Chris Madden will make there first attempt at the championship. Also, rumors still exist about the possibility of a few UDTRA defectors coming back down south. I suppose time will tell.
I would like to offer my congratulations to Clint Smith & all the Turkey Creek Snacks racing team, as they will be picking up the 2000 championship trophy tonight in Birmingham, Alabama.
We hope to see some of Tazewell's fans in a few weeks At the new & improved Green Valley Speedway in Gadsden Alabama for the "Bama Bash".
