SPRING CITY, TN – The following are some competitor notes for the Sam Williams Memorial Race this Saturday night at Mountain View Raceway. Track officials have made some adjustments to accommodate this $3,000-to-win Special Event for the Sportsman Division.
It will be a Non-Points Paying event for both the Sportsman and Late Model Divisions.
Regular Weekly Points will be awarded to the Open-Wheel Modified, B-Hobby, Thunder, and Front-Wheel-Drive Divisions.
Drivers can compete in only one (1) Division.
The B-Sportsman Division has the night off, but B-Sportsman competitors may compete this Saturday night in the Sportsman or Late Model Divisions without losing their Beginner Status for this Special Event.
The Front-Wheel-Drive Jr. Division will have the night off. This is because the Sportsman Division will compete in three extra events, and the track needs to try and exercise better time management and not have our customers at the track at 2 o’clock in the morning. Mountain View Raceway has been innovative in letting the kids race, so please work with us in our scheduling of their events. The Front-Wheel-Drive Jr. Division will return on July 10.
Sam Williams Memorial 40 Race Information: The race will pay $3,096-to-win and $100-to-start, will run 40 laps and will start up to 20 cars.
