The points races were in the spotlight tonight as there were only two races left that the drivers could obtain points. In the Tazewell Late Model division Jason Trammell had been cutting down the advantage that Travis Fultz held by winning four straight races. Still his hopes of the title is a long-shot at best since the advantage before the race was 275 points. Trammell had to keep winning and Fultz must have had trouble for Trammel to keep his steel-head Championship streak alive. Trammell has won five titles in a row. In Modified Street, multiple-time Champion Tony Horton held a 180 point lead over Robbie Buchanon. In Tazewell Speedway Classics Joe Keck is still ahead of Phillip Shockley now with a 110 point margin. Jason Long leads Michael Daniels in the Pure Street class by 180 and Joey Allen leads Bubby Braden by 135. Not to be overlooked in this class is Chuck McMahan who is only ten points from Braden. The track crew took a little longer than usual to get the surface ready to race on but it was worth the wait.

The Classics qualified first with Phillip Shockley having fast time with a lap of 14.620 seconds. The Hobby Stocks were next and Jamie Whitt had the fastest time at 14.421 seconds. Next were the Tazewell Late models and Travis Fultz had quick time with his 11.685 second trip around the Taz. In the Modified Street qualifications Gary Blanken was the fastest of fourteen drivers with his lap of 13.317.

Racing first on this night was the Classic cars. Phillip Shockley led the field into turn one and dominated the entire race. Jay Eubanks tried to keep the leader close but simply could not. The best racing was between Robbie Sands and Robert Estes back towards the middle of the pack.

Up next was the 4 Cylinders and they were led to the green by Allen Holloway and Steve Lee. Holloway led the first two laps as Chuck McMahan and Joey Allen pushed him back to third place. McMahan tried to hold Allen off but an engine misfire let Allen grab the top spot. Allen opened up a lead that nobody could close up and he took the win over Holloway and Lee.

The Hobby Stocks hit the high banks next with Jamie Whitt leading the way. On the start we had one upside down, Chuck Johnson, following contact with Jon Cook. The contact happened as the cars tried to miss a spin coming off turn two. The field was reassembled and restarted. Both Johnson and Cook restarted. From that point on the race looked like a demolition derby with some good racing thrown in. Shannon Emery the winner of the previous 2010 Hobby Stock race began to pressure the leader until a lap five caution stopped the action. Chris Long lost a wheel after contact with the wall and had to retire for the night. Emery also left the racing surface on lap eight yielding his second place to Sue Curl although he rejoined at the rear for the restart. Without Emery up front it was smooth sailing for Whitt until lap seventeen when a wheel broke on Jesse Wilders' car giving the field one last shot at the leader. On the restart it was Whitt, Curl and a very fast Jesse Helton. As the final laps counted down it was Whitt that took home the victory.

The feature event of the night was next and once again it was Travis Fultz and Jason Trammell on row one. Fultz had the fastest time qualifying and chose the outside lane to start from. Steve Carr and Greg Estes watched from row two as the leaders blasted into turn one. Fultz took the lead and Carr pressured Trammell for second. On lap 19 it was a two way battle for the lead with Carr just behind them. Fultz had to struggle at times to clear lapped traffic and Trammell used it well to get close but each time Carr would get close enough to make Trammell pay attention to him and that let Fultz stay ahead and break the four race win streak of Trammell. Travis Fultz pulled his Citizen's Bank, Reece Monuments, Cowboys Auto Sales, Harrogate Collision Center, DJ's race Engines Mopar into victory lane where he thanked his friends and sponsors.

Next on the track were the Modified Street cars and they were led to the green by Gary Blanken with Rick Welch alongside him. The top two in points started from row three; Tony Horton and Robbie Buchanon. An accident in turn four brought Tony Horton to the attention of the track officials and luckily he was able to continue. After three attempted side by side starts flagman Bruce Caylor called for a single file start just to get the race underway without incident. By lap ten Buchanon had lost the handle on his ride and was struggling just to stay with Tony Horton. Up front Allen Holt had moved into second bringing Warren McMahan with him. On lap fourteen the field was slowed by a caution but on the restart it was Blanken again comfortably out front. Blanken held off McMahan and Jordon Horton who was running without front fenders and nosepiece due to an early incident. Buchanon finished three spots ahead of points leader Tony Horton.

The final race of the night belonged to the Pure Street class. The class is sometimes overlooked this season due to a lower than usual car count but they still put on a heck of a show. Jonathan Miracle and Jason Long led them to the green. The start for this class also was difficult but they got it underway this time with Mike Daniels alongside Miracle. Miracle led until lap 13. His water pump let go giving the top spot to Mike Kelley. Now in second and third were the very dangerous Smiths's; Steve and Kevin. On lap 14 Kevin pulled off bringing Long back to third. Kelley crossed the stripe first but it was found that he and Long were both running four-barrel carbs which are not allowed in the Pure Street class and the win came back to the first legal car which was Steve Smith. Daniels came away with second and John Stevens grabbed the third spot.

Tazewell Speedway would like to thank the fans for their patience tonight as the track took longer than hoped for to prepare. Next week the Super Late Models will make another appearance as the NASRA, C.J. Rayburn series will come back for the Buddy Rogers Memorial 44 lap feature race. Once again each lap will be sponsored and the money will be donated to the American Cancer Society to assist them in finding a cure. The Tazewell Late Models will not be running but speedway officials may add the Hobby Stocks to the racing program. Race fans take notice that on the 18th there will be a food drive for a local program that helps so many in this county.
