Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals Series Replaces Rome with Cochran Due to Track Reconstruction

(July 1, 2020) The Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals Series presented by Sunoco Race Fuels has made one change to the 2020 schedule. The tour begins July 10 and runs through July 25.

The July 19 date at Rome (Ga.) Speedway has been replaced with a visit to the Cochran Motor (Ga.) Speedway paying $3,500-to-win. “Taking into consideration the current COVID-19 schedule uncertainty at Rome Speedway, we felt it was a good time to take off the summer months to re-clay Rome Speedway and make property improvements to the facility,” stated track owner Mickey Swims. “Stay tuned for Rome Speedway’s schedule updates in the coming months.” The Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals Series looks forward to returning to Rome Speedway in 2021.

The tour will make its first visit to the Cochran Motor Speedway. The sister tour, the Spring Nationals visited Cochran in 2019 with Chris Ferguson picking up the payday.

Over the 12 race tour, over $314,000 will go out the door in nightly prize money and tour-ending points fund money. The champion will receive $5,053. Drivers may drop their worst finish at the end of the tour plus the may drop/miss a race if needed. The purses will be $3,500-to-win with $400-to-start and $10,053-to-win and $500-to-start. Tow money of $75.00 per car will be paid to any driver not making the field of 22 each night.

Some of the drivers expected to follow the tour include: Ross Bailes of Clover, S.C., Cla Knight of North Augusta, S.C., Jake Knowles of Rome, GA., Donald McIntosh of Dawsonville, Ga., Brandon Overton of Evans, Ga. and Pearson Lee Williams of Dublin, Ga.
