Freezing, Wet Weather Cancels Boyd's Events... & Smoky Mountain

(March 15, 2023) Precision Weather Service (PWS) has cited an outlook of below freezing temperatures, including wind chills in the 20s, together with heavy rain and thunderstorms this weekend throughout northern Georgia. After consulting with PWS, World of Outlaws and Boyd’s Speedway officials decided in the best interest of fans and competitors to cancel this weekend’s event.

Also, with the already rescheduled Smoky Mountain Speedway race on Thursday only viable for competitors while paired with the Boyd’s Speedway weekend, World of Outlaws and track officials decided to cancel the event as Series officials continue to create multi-day, destination events. A one-day show with no other event in reasonable traveling distance for teams and fans is cost-prohibitive and no longer practical.

Neither event will be made up. All tickets for the Tennessee Tipoff at Smoky Mountain will be refunded through MyRacePass. With the cancellation of the WoO event Thursday night, March 16, we have considered all options. Running two support classes alone isn’t feasible. With such a short notice, it would be asking a lot of our racers to try and add additional classes. With that being said, we will instead be having an open practice.

Practice will be held from 6:00PM- 9:00PM. Pit Gate ONLY. Pit Gate will open at 5:00PM. $10.00 per person, $20.00 per driver. Limited concessions will be available. Please be respectful and help us keep trash cleaned up!

Pit Gate: $10.00 per person, 11 & under Free
Drivers: $20.00 (includes transponder)
Gate opens at 5:00PM
Practice 6:00-9:00PM

Unstable Forecast Postpones Tennessee Tipoff to March 16

(March 1, 2023) With the thoughts of traveling fans and drivers in mind, an unstable weekend forecast, including the potential for thunderstorms, high winds, and the possibility of heavy rains at Smoky Mountain Speedway, has forced World of Outlaws CASE Construction Equipment Late Model Series and track officials to postpone this weekend’s annual Tennessee Tipoff.

The event at Smoky Mountain will now be a one-night show on Thursday, March 16, paying $10,000-to-win, joining the Shamrock 100 at Boyd’s Speedway March 17-18 as part of an epic Southeast tripleheader weekend.

All tickets for the event will be refunded through MyRacePass. Fans can repurchase tickets for the March 16 event by CLICKING HERE.
