Mooresville, NC 7/7/14: The list of unknowns that await X-1R Pro Cup Series drivers this weekend at Tri-County Motor Speedway are as long as the .400 mile track located in the small town of Hudson in Caldwell County, North Carolina. The track, situated in the foothills of the North Carolina mountains, has been partially closed for the last four years, only hosting special events such as this weekend’s race. Of the pre entered drivers, only a few have ever raced the facility with most having never even set eyes on the track. In addition, due to county noise ordnance rules those drivers who would like to test in advance won’t be able to, thus adding another element to consider for teams preparing for this weekend festivities.

Tri-County is the X-Factor on 2014 Schedule:
With Tri-County having been closed on regular basis for the last four years there’s not a lot of information “floating” around on what to expect for Friday’s Precision Printed Products 250. With no testing time really available for teams and a condensed schedule on tap throughout the day Friday, it’s anyone’s guess on what to expect once the free flag flies. All these ingredients make this weekend’s race the biggest X-factor on the 2014 schedule.
