Speedway Set to Host Tennessee Tipoff!
17, 2021) After five days of racing in Florida, the World
of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series will turn its attention
to a doubleheader weekend in Tennessee. The Series on Friday,
March 5, will make its seventh appearance at Duck River Raceway
Park, in Lewisburg, TN, and on Saturday, March 6, will make its
10th appearance at Smoky Mountain Speedway in Maryville, TN for
the Tennessee Tipoff.
The first five races of the 2021 season have set the stage for
several exciting storylines heading into the next two events –
including rookie contender Kyle Strickler currently leading the
points after two wins in the first five races, Ricky Weiss continuing
to tune his new self-made Sniper Chassis and Dennis Erb, Jr. off
to a strong start.
One of the most surprising storylines is three-time defending
champion Brandon Sheppard still in search of a win and top-five
finish. He and his Rocket1 Racing team will be hungrier than ever
to find their way back to the top when the season continues in
Tennessee, currently sitting sixth in the championship standings.
Sheppard earned his first win at Duck River in 2019 but has yet
to visit Victory Lane at Smoky Mountain with the Series.
