Dirt Track Auto Race Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap Tennessee

Jeremy Z and family spent an entertaining and enjoyable day at the Joy facility in Tennessee.
Joy had all kinds of interesting displays and fun things for the kids to do, as well as providing a tour of their facility.

Jeremy was excited about having the opportunity to race on a new kind of dirt track for the first time at Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap. Considering there were no hot laps to even practice on a strange, new track, all went well.  The walls of this track were on a greater angle and the track was much shorter than he was used to.  His pit crew consisting of his dad Jim, and his two uncles Dale and Lee, were a bit concerned because of the slope and Jeremy never racing on this type of track.  His mom was filming while the rest of his family had to go back to the hotel since his girls were falling asleep.   The race didn't start until 9PM and they had driven almost 9 hours the day before, getting in late to the hotel.  

Jeremy did well.  He started 15th and finished 9th in the 1st 20 lap feature! He then came home with an 8th place finish in the 2nd 20 lap feature! Two top tens....way to go Jeremy!!! Thanks again to Joy Mining for providing such a great day for the Joy family, race car drivers and friends.

Official Joy Roaring Knob Jeremy Zufall Race Results September 3, 2011

Official Race results from 9-3-11* (compliments of Joy).  Jeremy raced at Roaring Knob this past Saturday, where he started last in the make-up feature. He finished 11th. 
During the second feature he started 15th and finished 8th out of 25 cars!  There were lots of caution flags and wrecks this night.  Cudos for going around them instead of being in them.
And got rained out for the Joy 50 on Sunday.  That's the third time this summer!  
Dirt track auto racing still rocks!

Jeremy Z Moved up from 15th to 8th at Roaring Knob Dirt Track Saturday September 3, 2011

It was a beautiful, but toasty hot evening when the dirt track races started at Roaring Knob on Saturday night.  Jeremy and his dad were both racing.  His dad raced the charger event and Jeremy the Fastrak Late Model event.  There were numerous caution lights due to wrecks, all through the night.  The field started with 21 cars and ended with about 18.  Jeremy was placed 15th in the feature but went on to move up and finish a solid 8th place.  It was a good race that required a lot of skill to avoid so many spin outs and accidents.  Jeremy's dad Jim allowed a new driver to participate in the heat races while Jim raced in the feature event.  Both had a good night over all.

Joy, Jeremy's main sponsor is holding a special race this evening, Sunday, September 4th at Roaring Knob.  It's looking a lot like rain right now so there is a chance it may be called off.  If not, go out and enjoy an evening at the dirt track.

Fun, in the sun, at the Roaring Knob Speedway Dirt Track!
