Change in plans at Volunteer Speedway; no racing May 7 (nor any events scheduled moving forward)

BULLS GAP, Tenn. (April 22, 2022) — Announcement was made following last Thursday’s Kyle Larson Presents FloRacing Late Model Challenge Powered By Tezos that Volunteer Speedway tentatively would be having a five division (604 Late Model, Sportsman Late Model, Street Stock, Classic and Front Wheel Drive) racing program on Saturday, May 7. However, plans have changed and now there “will not” be racing on May 7 – and the possibilities for future race date(s) are undetermined.
 
“I know there will be those who won’t like this announcement, and trust me, it’s truly disappointing that we won’t be scheduling any races at Volunteer Speedway,” said Volunteer Speedway operator/promoter Vic Hill. “Because hosting races, that 100% was mine and wife Christa’s plans. Volunteer Speedway means a lot to us. Me, personally, as a driver I have right at 100 career wins and five Super Late Model track championships, so of course I want to see the place be a success. … Over the past 2 months leading up to the 2022 season-opening event, there was a tremendous amount of work done around the facility. People really don’t even have a clue as to what all myself, Christa and a great bunch of volunteers did. There are too many people to name individually, but I really want to thank each and every person who helped out.
 
“There was a lot of maintenance work that needed to be done that, to just be completely honest, had been neglected over the past several years. I’m talking about major water/sewer leakage and plumbing issues, electrical problems, burned-out track lights needing to be replaced by having to use a bucket truck, road grader and water truck repairs, along with carpentry related projects, thorough cleaning in concessions and restrooms, roofing repair, etc. … While the Kyle Larson Presents FloRacing Late Model Challenge Powered By Tezos was a great financial success for event promoter FloRacing, it was not for Volunteer Speedway. Unfortunately, things just did not work out for us how we had hoped for. After carefully assessing operational costs, both Christa and I have decided moving forward it’s just in our best financial interests to not schedule future race dates.”
 
While no racing is currently scheduled at Volunteer Speedway, interest has been expressed by several drivers/race teams regarding possibilities of renting the track for private practice. For anyone interested in doing so, contact Vic Hill at (423) 312-4206.
