Tazewell Speedway Results 6-1-02
(Tazewell, TN)

For the second week in a roll Jason
Trammell has set fast time 11:546. I
think he is going after the track record
of 11:12 on the mountain steep banks of
Tazewell Speedway.

After three attempts to start the race
and everybody trying to win the race on
the first lap. The flagman started the
field of cars single file, or maybe they
were just slipping off the mountain!

It was Jason Trammell pulling away from
the others, with Ricky Rogers in second
followed by Stacy Boles, John Llewelyn,
and Jack Trammell. Lap two the caution
flew for Steve Rouse in turn two. Lap
four Brian Smith passed Jack Trammell on
the low side of the track for fifth.
Only to have Jack Trammell pass Smith
back on the high side on lap seven. Lap
fourteen the caution flew for debris on
the track, putting the rest of the cars
back on Jason Trammell's bumper. Lap
fifteen Jason Trammell spun while
leading the race. Giving the led to
Rogers on the restart followed by Boles,
Llewelyn, Jack Trammell, and Brian Smith
in fifth place.

Lap eighteen Smith passed Jack Trammell
to take over the fourth place, while
Jeff Wolfenbarger took fifth place. The
next caution flew on lap thirty-one for
Llewelyn when he slid up into the turn
two wall, with Wolfenbarger coming to a
stop to miss him.

The restart saw Rogers in the led
followed by Boles, Smith, Wolfenbarger
and Fred England. Lap thirty-two till
the checkered flew Boles was below
Rogers trying to take the win.

It was Ricky Rogers from Knoxville, TN
driving the Goddard Performance, Vic
Hill Racing Engines, RaceScan, Rogers
Trucking, Warrior Race Cars #144 taking
the win for the second week in a roll.
Last weeks win put new live into Rogers
racing program and a glitter in his
eyes. As he got out of the car he
blessed everyone with a bottle of cold
water that his son Steven had gave him
as he reached victory lane.

The Limited Late Model race started off
the same way as the Supers. After three
attempts to start the race the flagman
started them single file. It was fast

Going down the backstretch Brooks moved
along side of Bull and took the led

Chapman brushed the turn three wall.

Lap four Hodges advanced up to the
second place behind Brooks. By lap
fifteen the leaders were working lap
traffic. Phil Helton left liquid on the

Yoder spun in turn two. Brook still held
the point with Hodges in second followed
