RACING THIS SATURDAY RESCHEDULED
September 17, 2014 - Saturday's racing program, including the Buster Cupp Memorial, has been rescheduled for Saturday, September 27. There will be no racing this Saturday.

The decision was made to not race this week instead of have another week of a rough track surface. Tazewell Speedway owner Gary Hall apologizes for this change.
The Buster Cupp Memorial will be held on Saturday, September 27. The pure streets will be racing for $500 to win. Tazewell Late Models, sportsman, classics, and four cylinders will also be racing.
