SPRING CITY, TN – It’s going to be a busy night of racing this Saturday night at Mountain View Raceway as there will be Double Money and Double Points for six of the track’s seven Weekly Racing Divisions, and the Red Clay 602 Late Model Series will run in a $1,250-to-win Main Event. There will also be a Crew Chief’s Race at the end of the racing action.
Mountain View Raceway Owners Kelvin and Susan Hampton had 95 Entrants in eight Divisions ready to race last Saturday night when a thunderstorm moved in and rained out the races. The Hamptons elected to reward the racers’ loyalty that night with the Double Money Double Points races this Saturday night.
Also added to this Saturday night’s Racing Program are the Open-Wheel Modifieds that will run for Regular Money and Regular Points. The Crew Chief’s Race was also postponed until this Saturday night. Competitors and race fans can use their arm bands or ticket stubs from last Saturday night for admission either this Saturday night or on August 28 for admission to the track.
