By Staff | Mar 21, 2012

With one of the more mild winters in memory in the rear view mirror and the unseasonably warm summer time weather have left racers and race fans chomping at the bit for another action packed season at the bullring.

Race fans need not wait as the 2012 season preview will take place on March 24 from 10 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. on Main Street in Middlebourne, WV as the 2nd Annual Main Street Car show presented by Outlaw Graphics & Auto will showcase many of the weekend warriors meticulously prepped machines. Be sure to stop by and vote for your favorite car and driver as all proceeds will benefit the local Middlebourne Public Library.

After the car show, fans and racers will make the short trek up Rt. 18 to the Tyler County Fairgrounds and the Tyler County Speedway as the gates will swing open in earnest as the 2012 Test n’ Tune will welcome racers an opportunity to shakedown their new rides in anticipation of the 38th Annual Season Opener one week later.

Driver registration forms and pit parking spots will also be available for anxious racers. Raindate for the Test n’ Tune will be May 25 from 1-5 p.m.

Celebrating the 38th year of continuous operation and billed as the nations raciest bullring, Tyler County Speedway is a lightning quick high banked mile oval that produces three-and-four wide racing action and is located three miles south of Middlebourne, WV on State Route 18 at the scenic Tyler County Fairgrounds.
