Busy Month of April Set to Kick Off Historic Season at the Bullringadmin
Struggling to get thru a rugged month of March and trying to shake old man winter, race fans will soon be donning their favorite racing tee’s, stocking the cooler and heading to the ‘Bullring’ for another summer of hardcore dirt track racing. The Hometown Racing Association, promoters of the Tyler County Speedway have a busy month of April in store as the 2018 season gets underway in earnest.
An early season track favorite event will kick start the month of April as the 30th Annual Earl Hill Memorial paying $5,000 to win for Super Late Models takes the green on April 7th. The 30th edition of the speedway classic will roll out the carpet to regional race teams as the co-sanctioned event will parlay the talents of drivers from both the Ultimate North East and the Ultimate Mid-Ohio Valley Super Late Model Series. An over $20,000 purse will be on the line as we pay homage to the best-ever to circle the ‘Bullring’, in the late Earl Hill. The renowned racer spiriting the handle bar moustache and vintage red polka dot cap will be looking down as the Tyler County Speedway honors his legacy once again.
