MARYVILLE, Tenn. (Aug. 13) Being right on the edge of making both event fields at the North-South 100, but coming up just short added additional frustration to an already frustrating season for the Blount Motorsports Team.

Coming off a disappointing third place finish in the year’s Southern Nationals the team had hoped to get back on track at the North-South.

“After the frustration in this years Summer Nationals going to Florence for the North-South was probably not where we needed to be,” said David. “We were close all weekend and that made things even worse.”

“It was one of the worst and most frustrating racing weekends I can remember,” said Donald picking up on the conversation. “It’s the little things that will get you and there were a lot of little things that got us.”

The Blount Motorsports Team will keep on keeping on and try to right the ship this weekend with the first two races of Ray Cook’s new Schaeffer’s Fall Nationals Series. Friday night Smoky Mountain Speedway will host the inaugural event. On Saturday North Georgia Speedway will host the second race of the series.
