With slightly cooler temperatures greeting race fans, Tazewell Speedway opened its gates for the World of Outlaws dirt late model series to come in and try to tame its high banks. The fans filled up the stands and watched as the track crew made final preparations to the surface in anticipation of the Coca-Cola of Middlesboro 50 lap feature event. After the cars ran in the clay surface they took to the banks for hot laps and qualifying. Many of the visiting Outlaws had no idea the speed they were fixing to feel as they pushed down on the go-pedal.

The Tazewell Classics qualified first with Joe Keck grabbing another pole with a quick time of 14.548 seconds. Next to hit the high banks were the Outlaws and Josh Richards had fast time. The Outlaws then went back into the pits to get ready for the heats.

Next to qualify were the Modified Street cars with Clyde Overholt grabbing the top spot with a lap of 13.621 seconds. The Tazewell Late Models were next and Travis Fultz was the fastest with a time of 11.895 seconds.

The Outlaws then took to the track for heat race number one with the top six advancing. Josh Richards led every lap in route to the first heat win over Shane Clanton. In heat two Vic Hill got the jump but Mike Marlar gave him all he wanted. Hill got the heat two win. Rick Rogers drove away to take the heat three win over a strong Steve Francis.

The first group to race their feature was the Tazewell Speedway Classics with Joe Keck leading them to the green. Keck drove away on the start with Wayne Dukes and Robbie Sands in pursuit. Even after a couple cautions slowed the race down Keck continued to get the jump on the restarts. The race was red flagged on lap five when Jim Yeary had to avoid a spin and went high contacting the outside wall and went for a wild flipping and twisting ride coming to a rest in the infield on the front of a GMC truck. Yeary was removed from his ride awake and talking but was taken to Claiborne Hospital for further checkup. Yeary had his best run going tonight as he was fighting to enter the top five. On the restart Keck opened a lead again until a lap fifteen spin from the second and third place cars created another caution. On the restart it was Keck, Robbie Sands and Phillip Shockley the top three. Keck went on to win his third in a row.

The next race was the Outlaws B-Main. Clint Smith looked good as he kept the field behind him until the checkers fell.

After a short break, the World Of Outlaws were next to race and they were chasing a ten-thousand dollar pay check. Leading the Coca-Cola 50 to the green flag was Shane Clanton and Vic Hill.
Clanton got the jump with Hill second and Steve Francis third. On lap five the second caution flag flew and bunched the field up just as Hill was finding his line and challenging Clanton for the lead. On the restart Clanton at first drove away again but Hill began looking to pass on lap nine. On lap ten the third caution flag flew. Josh Richards had made it to the fourth spot after Rick Rogers fell off the pace. Rogers had something contact his helmet and a half lap later he was dazed and jumping the cushion in turn four. He hit the wall at an angle that sent him rolling over. Brent Robinson was involved as well as Vic Hill. Hill's night was over. On the lap 20 restart Clanton once again had to hold off the charge from Francis. Clanton held the field at bay but had to endure another restart on lap thirty-three for an incident involving Tim Fuller. Clanton was able to hold Francis off for the Coca-Cola 50 victory and its ten-thousand dollar check. Finishing third was Josh Richards. Clanton races a Rocket chassis. Twenty-four cars started the feature and the race had a total of eight cautions.

After a second and third attempt at a start, they lined up again to get the race started and when they did they started without Davis who fell out. Darrell Saylor spun in turn two after one official lap bringing out another caution and restart. The top three were Overholt, Buchanon and Allen Holt.

The racing action held longer tonight due to the accidents and a large car count. The race concluded a little after 1:00 AM. Most of the standing room only crowd stayed to watch the entire program. The World of Outlaws are to be congratulated for running a very good night of action. The series done a super job and will be making a return trip in the future. Thanks to Coca-Cola of Middlesboro, KY for making tonight a success.
