Tazewell Speedway results 6-22-02 (Tazewell, TN)


Fast Qualifier Scott Sexton 11.78 DNS the race because of the water pump going out.

David Crabtree took the led from the front roll, followed by Jason Trammell, Ricky Rogers, John Thompson (in Crabtree's back up car) and Steve Smith. Lap one Smith passed Thompson for fourth place. Anthony Arnwine brought out the first caution in turn two. Lap four Rogers and Smith passed Jason Trammell going down the backstretch, to take second and third place. Lap fifteen Stacy Boles passed John Thompson for fourth place. Jason Trammell brought out the second caution on lap eighteen when he stopped on the front stretch. The restart it was Crabtree, Rogers, Smith, Boles and Thompson the top five. Lap twenty-one Mark Brooks passed Fred England. Lap twenty-three Steve Rouse spun in turn two.

The top five remained the same on the restart. Lap twenty-four Thompson found some power in Crabtree's backup car. Thompson passed Boles and Smith both on the back stretch going in to turn three and coming off turn four passed Rogers to take over second place behind Crabtree. Lap twenty-five Rogers, Smith and Boles got together coming off turn four, Boles spun. All three were saved as the caution flew for Rouse in turn two, so Boles got his place back as the caution wasn't for them. The top five stayed the same on the restart. Before the lap was completed the caution flew again for Gary Blanken, Rouse and England went the three spun in turn two. Lap twenty-six Rouse spun in turn two and Anthony Arnwine headed to the pits.

Lap twenty-seven Crabtree may have been wondering if he should have loaned his back up car to some one as Thompson was below Crabtree. But the caution flew for Brooks when he spun on the backstretch. It was Crabtree, Thompson, Rogers, Smith and Boles on the restart in a battle for the led. Lap thirty Jeff Wolfenbarger passed Jack Trammell. Lap thirty-one the caution flew again for debris in turn four, the top five stayed the same. Lap thirty-two Wolfenbarger passed Boles for fifth place and on lap thirty-five passed Smith for fourth place. Lap thirty-seven Crabtree may have been having second thought about driving his new car and letting some one drive his backup car as Thompson was below Crabtree in Crabtree's backup car. Crabtree had his new car setting at home for two or three weeks and couldn't decide which car to bring, so he brought them both. I think he may have has plans to try out the new Warrior racecar after the races. But decide to put someone else in his old car to do some comparison. It almost cost him the race as Thompson was under his several times from lap twenty-seven to the checkered.

David Crabtree from Maryville, TN driving a new Warrior racecar with only a number five on it went on to take the feature win at the Taz.

It was a great night to be a kid at Tazewell Speedway as the nine years and younger got to race down the front stretch and the winner got a new bicycle. The older kids races around the whole track and also the winner in that age group got a new bicycle. One of the kids was checked for having soft tires on his feet as he ran barefooted and was in the top three. The kids really enjoy getting to get out on the track and race on the track that their favorite drivers and dad race on weekly. Tazewell Speedway will be back in action next Saturday night.

The Southern All Stars Dirt Racing Series from Al. will make a return to Tazewell Speedway on July 6 for the second time this year. The Fourth of July week will see some great racing in E. TN. The Southern-All-Stars out of AL will be racing in E. TN for three nights. You can visit Tazewell Speedway on the web at or call the track at 423 626 2222
