Improved Lighting Set to Shine on STARS 34th Hillbilly 100 at Tyler County
(Middlebourne, WV) Season long facility preparations for the 34TH
Annual Hillbilly 100 on September 1st and 2nd have been a goal for Officials
at the Tyler County Speedway. The fastest ¼ mile dirt oval in WV boasts
improved on track lighting for the Hillbilly 100. The improved lighting has
been a priority and is ready to shine on the greatest drivers and the finest
fans in the world on Labor Day Weekend. 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. The improved lighting will
enhance the always fan friendly environment provided by the Tyler County
Speedway Staff. Promoter Scott Farley and his staff have worked hard all
year to make the STARS 34th Annual Hillbilly 100 the best ever.
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 33-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 1st and 2nd
the Hillbilly 100 weekend will showcase a record breaking, six 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, Pure Stocks and the women
of the Ohio Valley for the first time ever, will put it all on the line for
their respective titles.

super value. More racing for the dollar has been a priority since the move
