Ultimate Super Late Model Series $10,000-to-win ‘Freedom Isn’t Free 50’ scheduled MONDAY, MAY 29 at Volunteer Speedway

BULLS GAP, Tenn. — The Memorial Day holiday weekend is the traditional kick-off into summer. But more importantly, it’s a time we all pause to remember and honor the men and women who lost their lives or are missing in action from defending our country during wartime, either in the past or present. We all know freedom is not free! And with the United States military involvement around the world, Memorial Day takes on an extra-special meaning for all citizens with loved ones and friends abroad.
Volunteer Speedway will host a special Memorial Day racing program headlined by the Ultimate Super Late Model Series $10,000-to-win “Freedom Isn’t Free 50” on MONDAY, MAY 29.

Both the grandstand and pit gates will open MONDAY, MAY 29 at 3 p.m. The drivers’ meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m., with hot laps tentatively starting at 7:15 p.m., to be followed by qualifying and green flag racing beginning shortly after 8 p.m.
