Schaeffer's Oil Fall Nationals Kicks Off 2020 Slate with Volunteer State Doubleheader

(August 30, 2020) Following a successful inaugural year in 2019, which included five different winners in the seven-race miniseries, the Schaeffer's Oil Fall Nationals Series presented by Sunoco Race Fuels will kick off its 2020 slate of events on September 5-6 in a doubleheader in the Volunteer State of Tennessee. On Saturday evening, Smoky Mountain Speedway in Maryville, Tennessee will play host to the season opener, as the 'Rockin' with the Stars Hall of Fame 100' presented by Classic Rock 103.5 WIMZ will boast a $5,000 paycheck. Hometown driver Tommy Kerr picked up the winner's spoils last season, as he bested Robby Moses, Brandon Kinzer, David Payne, and Dakotah Knuckles.

The double-dip in East Tennessee will then conclude on Sunday night with a visit to the bad-fast Tazewell Speedway in Tazewell, Tennessee. The 12th edition of the 'Buddy Rogers Memorial,' which will be co-sanctioned with the Schaeffer's Oil Iron-Man Championship Series, will shell out a $4,400 winner's check to the driver that conquers the high-banked oval. Dakotah Knuckles, of Ewing, Virginia, wired the feature field last year to record the victory over David Payne, Jason Trammell, Donald McIntosh, and David Crabtree.
