Preparations Complete for 33rd Hillbilly 100 at Tyler County Speedway
(Middlebourne, WV )Season long facility preparations for the 33rd Annual
Hillbilly 100 on September 2nd and 3rd have been a goal for Officials at the
Tyler County Speedway. The fastest ¼ mile dirt oval in the east boasts a
new clay-racing surface for the Hillbilly 100. The new clay has taken the
always fast and highly competitive ¼ mile to a higher level. The racing
action on the track has been at a premium all season long. Three wide
racing is the norm on the always smooth and lighting quick clay oval. In
addition to the fresh racing surface, new paint adorns the facility and new
guardrails on the racetrack have prepared the facility for the best ever
Hillbilly 100 in its 33-race history.
Labor Day weekend and the Hillbilly 100 has been a perfect match for the
dirt racing community since it's beginning in 1967. The exciting flavor of
the Hillbilly 100 has truly improved over its 32-race history. In 1998
the Hillbilly 100 moved to it's current home, Tyler County Speedway in
Middlebourne, WV. The move to the Tyler County bullring provided an
opportunity for a whole lot more racing action for the racers and the fans.
For years the Hillbilly 100 showcased four racing classes. Since the move
to TCS five classes have been a part of the show. On September 2nd and 3rd
the Hillbilly 100 weekend will again showcase five racing classes. The
tradition continues with the Late Models in the $25,000 to win Hillbilly
100. The Steel Block Late Models will shoot it out in the $2500 to win
Hillbilly 50, the Modifieds, Street Stocks, and the Pure Stocks will put it
all on the line for their respective titles.
Again in 2001 The Hillbilly 100 weekend will provide race fans with a super
value. More racing for the dollar has been a priority since the move to
Tyler County Speedway. Gates open on Sunday at 5pm with racing at 8pm.
Gates open on Monday at 10am with racing at 3pm. 2-Day General Admission is
$30, Sunday only General Admission is $15, Monday only General Admission is
