SCSCS Revised 2008 Race Schedule Announced
Skyland, North Carolina (May 12, 2008) - As most everyone
knows by now, the May 3rd, Columbus, OH event was unfortunately
cancelled as a result of a pending rain storm. At this time, a
make-up date for this event has not been scheduled.
In addition, series officials have decided to cancel the
originally scheduled June 6 and October 25th events at Tri-County
Motor Speedway. The series and track promoters were unable to agree
on insurance issues and the races were mutually cancelled.
The result of these events presented a unique opportunity for the
Series to revise its remaining 2008 race schedule.
The Friday, June 6 event will be moved to Newport Motor Speedway
on June 7th. “The series enjoyed its first event at Newport , TN
and looks forward to returning on June 7 and October 4th for the
remaining 2008 events. The Saturday date is more appealing to the
series and our competitors”, replied Joe Schmaling.
To replace the event that was cancelled in OH, officials have
committed to an event at Lonesome Pine Speedway on Saturday, August
2nd. According to Schmaling, “We are honored to race at Lonesome
Pine Speedway. While we regret not getting to race at Columbus, this
event is another quality facility for our series. Many of our teams
and drivers have raced there in the past. It should be a great
These changes along with the existing dates will comprise the
2008 schedule. With the October 25th cancellation, the series has
one remaining open date for its final race of 2008. Officials are
presently in contact with several facilities including Shenandoah,
Motor Mile, Concord, and Hickory to determine where the 2008 series
champion will be crowned!
