Crossville Speedway will play host to the Schaeffer’ Southern Nationals presented by Sunoco and Tennessee RV on Thursday, July 27. The $3,500 to win race will set the stage for the championship run.

Steve Casebolt, defending race winner Craig Vosbergen, and Ivedent Llyod Jr. are other series regulars.
Other drivers expected are Billy Ogle Jr., Caleb Ashby, Vic Hill, and other local and regional favorites.
