Rain forces featured races to continue Friday

COAL GROVE — The 2009 season at the Rocky Top Raceway is already off to a great start. With two races in, the biggest storyline thus far has been the incredible racing action as every feature race for every class has had at least one lead change.

Of course, nobody will forget the incredible finish to the Late Model portion of the Buckeye Nationals presented by Les Boggs on April 24.

With rain halting racing action last Friday, he races at Rocky Top will continue this Friday.

On the card will be another exciting racing program featuring Late Models-$2,000 to win, Modifieds-$650 to win, Bombers-$350 to win, and Mod Lites-$200 to win. This is only the start of an action packed month of May as RTR hosts the GCP Engines Twin 30’s on May 15, the Memorial Day Championships on May 22, and another $2,000 Late Model event to close the month on May 29.

Unless another special event is scheduled, every race in May has general admission prices at $12, kids (7-12) general admission $2, and pit admission $25. Gates will open at 4 p.m. with Hot Laps starting the racing action each night at 7:30.
